The new Robert Eggers movie The Northman doesn’t release in theaters until April 22, but the first wave of social reviews hit Twitter last night in the wake of the film’s premiere.

Not surprisingly, The Witch and The Lighthouse filmmaker’s new movie has been met with almost universal praise so far, being called everything up to and including a “masterpiece.”

“I’ve been a huge fan of Robert Eggers for years, but The Northman is truly his masterpiece. Brutal, fearless, & audacious, it feels like the kind of cinematic epic we don’t see very often anymore,” Heather Wixson from The Daily Dead raves in her social media review.

The Northman is Robert Eggers’ best film yet,” Wealth of Geeks and Collider’s Maggie Lovitt agrees. “Stunning cinematography sets the scene for the perfect merger of otherworldly Norse mythology with the brutal reality of Viking history.”

You definitely won’t be able to take your eyes off this blood-soaked revenge tale,” tweets Fandango’s Erik Davis, who also calls the film “daring and devilish.”

Brandon Davis from ComicBook.com praises the leading man of The Northman, “Alexander Skarsgård is insane for that performance. The man turns into an animal.”

Flickering Myth’s Robert Kojder tweets that the film is “so primal, savage, and visceral with stunning cinematography and a battle cry of a score. Robert Eggers continues to amaze.”

Critic @thisisnotahmad adds, “Talks of studio interference were highly exaggerated; this is purely an Eggers movie through and through. It is truly a miracle that this movie exists.”
