Grief, guilt and sanity are explored in this oddly haunting psychological thriller. While dealing with historical trauma, it almost feels itself like an artefact from another age, featuring such anachronistic elements as a landline, 35mm Kodak film and complicated, human characters.Part thriller, part character study, Cordelia is eerie and atmospheric, putting you in the fractured headspace of its desperate lead. An impressive dual achievement from co-writer/star Antonia Campbell-Hughes.

Nev Pierce for EMPIRE

Adrian Shergold’s Cordelia poses an intriguing premise wrapped in a strikingly atmospheric and claustrophobic presentation. It’s dark, slightly off-kilter and enjoyably strange, with Campbell-Hughes delivering a stellar double performance that carries events forward. There’s rarely a frame that she isn’t in, and she is constantly fantastic.

Andrew Murray for THE UPCOMING

A deeply creepy atmosphere and a fascinating protagonist are the selling points of this idiosyncratic psychological horror.
