Perri Nemiroff of Collider wrote, “MARVEL MADE A HORROR MOVIE! It’s weird, scary, and earns the title “Multiverse of Madness.” If you were at all concerned this movie wouldn’t feel Sam Raimi enough, fear not! I can’t imagine a more Sam Raimi MCU film. My genre-loving heart is bursting right now.” Kofi Outlaw also tweeted, “All I can/will say is that #DoctorStrange in the #MultiverseOfMadness is the most SAM RAIMI Sam Raimi movie I’ve seen in years. And I mean that in the best way. Laughs, heart, shock, scares, grossness, and a hefty dose of WEIRD. And those surprises…”

Many have praised the work of Elizabeth Olsen in particular. Also, they were moved by her story. Some also criticized the movie for being rushed at points.

The movie is just not a superhero movie but has elements of horror in it too. Also, some premiere audiences really appreciated the visuals and the background score.

The darker elements are blended with silly humor and snippets of horror. It’s a BLAST.”
