From the Daily Dot

Apostle, the new Netflix film from Gareth Evans, stars Legion's Dan Stevens as a shellshocked man named Thomas sent undercover to save his sister from a mysterious cult that has settled on an island called Erisden. It's set in 1905, when spiritualism was in flux and hucksters often served religion as a brand – sometimes literally. The set design and cinematography are excellent, and the torture scenes are drawn out and excruciating. But the storyline meanders in the middle half. When the film finally delves into horror, the pace picks up, but it felt like Apostle was missing the momentum that made Evans' previous films so engaging, and a sense of whose story it's telling. But there sure is a lot of blood.
