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.'"

Goofs

The Accles & Shelvoke captive bolt pistol used to kill the pig was invented after 1913. Though the movie does not specify what year it is, the voice-over talks about 'the old century ', which means the epilogue is probably set in the 20th century and the rest in the three decades before.

Quotes

The Reverend: People think it's the flames that make Hell unbearable. It's not. It is the absence of love.

A super powerful film that depresses deeply
11 April 2017 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a woman who cannot speak many years ago in a small town in the United States of America. She endures the many horrors that life has put her through, and it all started because of a priest.

The long runtime put me off watching it for​ a few weeks, but I finally got myself to watch it. I can honestly say that every minute of the film is worth watching, and every minute of the film affected me right to the core. I won't spoil any of the plot, so all I'll say is that. I cannot imagine so much misfortunes can be bestowed upon a person, yet the presentation of this horrid story is so very believable. It feels like I'm watching someone's life up close, and what happens to her makes me sick right to the core, right from the start to the end. The events portrayed are truly horrifying, and I'm still paralysed by Sandra and disbelief minutes after watching it. Acting is great by Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce, they make their characters shine. I cannot imagine a monster as sick as this character in the film. I am still having headache and palpitations from the evil character. I honestly can't remember when was the last time I felt so sick because of a film.

Watch this film if you have the chance, but watch it alone and when you feel strong enough for a very depressing emotional challenge.
