Trivia

Brimstone premiered in the competition of the Venice Film Festival and stirred great controversy. On the one hand critics praised the movie as brave and important, though others were shocked by the violence. While Independent wrote "Brimstone is raw and very powerful filmmaking, a movie that can't help but get under your skin", Variety wrote it was "hifalutin exploitation" blaming it on the Netherlands (the country of writer/director Koolhoven), writing "It is, after all, a country that ever since the 1960s, especially in Amsterdam, has profferred a more liberal view than almost any other place of what might euphemistically be termed 'youthful sexuality.'"

Portrays the dark side of the religion while maintaining the suspense until the end
29 December 2016 | by (the netherlands) – See all my reviews

I am so glad I took the chance to watch it before premier. This movie may not have "the most unexpected ending"-factor like other top thrillers.However, the great acting and the setting manages to keep that thrill alive until the end.

As pointed by others, it is not suitable for faint-hatred and you may encounter some violent scenes which may make you feel utterly disgusted but this makes the film more realistic and leaves you craving for justice.

If TV-series like Game of thrones, Outlander, West World intrigues you this will as well.
