Film Threat

By Eric Campos
Antibodie does fasten a tight squeeze on its audience, right from the get go, and even despite the long run time, just over two hours, it's a consistently tense ride.

L.A. Weekly

By Chuck Wilson
Antibodies is fairly riveting, thanks to Alvart's command of craft and tone. He's a director to watch.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
Films about serial killers have become so ubiquitous that they now form a subgenre of the crime movie. Even so, Antibodies, has a bracingly original take on the matter.

Los Angeles Times

By Kevin Crust
Although Alvart lays on the biblical allegory too heavily at times, the film's pace is brisk enough to maintain our full attention. Antibodies is not so much an art house movie as a well-made, commercial thriller that happens to be in German.

New York Post

By Kyle Smith
The chatty killer and the nervy atmosphere are both so depraved that the film, though it contains hardly any explicit violence, is like stepping into a blood Jacuzzi, and there is a biblical severity to the ending.

Variety

By Robert Koehler
Not content with a straight psychological police procedural, Alvart mixes in distracting -- and unconvincing --Biblical symbolism in a curious bid for weightiness.

The New York Times

By Manohla Dargis
As is often the case when ambitious young filmmakers have murder and profit on their minds, Mr. Alvart is finally less interested in the nature of man than in the cool stuff you can do with a camera, which he tosses about the set, swooping it up and down and all around, without rhyme or reason.
