This concept, although suitable for a short, is too thin for a full animated feature and wears out its welcome long before the end credits arrive.
The vivid cinematography, affecting performance by Wolfe, and lack of saccharine allow the film to resonate.
A regurgitated product, familiar bits and pieces of teen-friendly “scary” stuff that mimics horror in disappointingly superficial ways.
Shows how the most devastating damage caused by terrorists sometimes isn’t to those who die; it’s to those who remain alive.
Although the surface tone is breezy and cheeky, there’s a lot going on beneath the facade.
Stephen King fans can rejoice that Hollywood has done justice to one of the author’s scary books.
"Ingrid Goes West" is part comedy, part tragedy, part horror/thriller, and part social commentary.
Eye-opening and humanizing, this is as atypical an animated feature as one is likely to find washing ashore in the United States.
Doesn’t compromise and for those who love a grittier, less audience-friendly flavor of horror, it’s a must-see.
Watchable but by no means worth the money and effort necessary to see it theatrically.
