after a peculiar premiere in which 8 M3GANs began to dance to the rhythm of Taylor Swift and even to which the producer, Jason Blumcame disguised as the character, the first reactions arrive to ‘M3GAN‘, Blumhouse’s new horror bet directed by gerard johnstone and that we will be able to see in Spanish cinemas on January 4th.
Although the full reviews are still embargoed, among the messages that the attendees of the screening have left on Twitter can be read such enthusiastic things like we are facing a new icon of terror or that it has a touch of roll Steven Spielberg. You can read some of the reactions below:
#M3GAN delivers our next great horror icon. The first film in a long time to make the best out of the “killer doll” story while still carving its own tasteful personality.
It’s the perfect balance of eeriness & dark humor. Like Malignant, the film rightfully earns all the camp. pic.twitter.com/gTppN8NXez

“‘M3GAN brings us our next great horror icon. The first movie in a long time to bring out the best in the “killer doll” story while continuing to forge his own tasteful personality. It is the perfect balance between the mysterious and the black humor. Like ‘Evil one‘, the movie rightfully wins the whole camp.”
#M3GAN is a hoot and a half. At its best when leaning into the zaniness that made its marketing campaign so viral.
Chock full of great horror gags and dare I say a bit Spielbergian in its science fiction elements.
Certainly a franchise starter, and I’m here for the ride. ?? pic.twitter.com/vS84OqdHZ7

“M3GAN is a hoot and a half. It’s best when it builds on the madness that made its marketing campaign so viral. It’s packed with great horror gags and I dare say it’s a bit Spielbergian in its sci-fi elements. Definitely the start of a franchise and will be here for the ride.”
In case you’re wondering… yes, #M3GAN slays. Definitely more of an amusing social satire than straight horror, but it’s inventive & clever & VERY entertaining. Without a doubt it elevates the “Scary Doll” genre, but now I need a M3GAN vs Chucky movie immediately! pic.twitter.com/ZTkUyloTbI

“In case you were wondering… yes, M3GAN is deadly. It’s definitely more of a fun social satire than just horror, but it’s inventive, clever and VERY entertaining. It certainly elevates the “Killer Doll” genre, but now I need a M3GAN vs Chucky movie right away!”
Without falling into the gore
‘M3GAN’ stars allison williams like the roboticist of a toy company and by Violet McGraw (‘The Haunting of Hill House‘) as the little orphaned Cady to whom the psycho doll is attached. Although we don’t see her, Amie Donald puts the body to M3GAN and Jenna Davis the voice in its original version.
Well, #M3GAN RULES. We all know I love a killer doll, and this gal is up there with the best of ’em. The movie is packed with creepy moments, LOL-worthy shots and sassy one-liners that I’m still grinning gleefully over. Less bloody than ya might expect, but I had a blast? pic.twitter.com/JexwQK7Ecb

“Well, ‘M3GAN’ COOL. We all know I love killer dolls, and this girl is up there with the best. The movie is full of spooky moments, lol-worthy shots, and one-liners that I still smile gleefully over. Less bloody than one might expect, but I had a great time”
I saw #M3GAN last night (and did some awesome interviews this morning) and it’s a blast. The story beats are pretty much exactly what you’d expect, but M3gan herself is an instant icon and the tone is top notch. I laughed my ass off so many times, yet it remained dark throughout. pic.twitter.com/3MxnEdJ5SK

Believe the viral hype: #M3GAN Delivers with a campy mean streak that will rattle some, but there’s a code in M3GAN’s code that makes it easy to root for. Allison Williams completes a horror trifecta after GET OUT and THE PERFECTION, playing a timely white lady Dr. Frankenstein. pic.twitter.com/MwvoV5pC4o

“Believe the viral hype: ‘M3GAN’ has a camp and mean streak that will make some tremble, but there is a code in the M3GAN code that makes it easy to support it. Allison Williams completes a trifecta of horror after ‘Let me out‘ Y ‘The perfection‘ playing a well-timed Dr. Frankenstein.”
‘M3GAN’ opens in Spain on January 4, exclusively in theaters from Universal.
