Film reviews are still appearing for The Neon Demon. Unfortunately, the film fell by the way side here while I was covering the UK trip.
In terms of reviews, it’s a mixed bag, critics like it or they don’t.
Horror Talk reviewed the film and gave it 4/5 stars.
Den of Geek reviewed it and gave it 5/5 stars.
The Monocle has an audio review up. The Neon Demon segment staarts at the 5:56 mark.
The Cornell Daily Sun has posted a review written by sophomore student Lorenzo Benitez. It’s an interesting read.
While the film is generating a positive buzz among critics and the Refn fan base, it is not doing well at the box office. Current numbers posted at Box Office Mojo are below.
