What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Hitchcock for the MTV generation.
Francois Bloemhof 'n Lomp draaiboek met ongemotiveerde handelings.
Dennis Lim Echoes of Hitchcock in teen thriller.
Melanie Daly Disturbia is definitely a passable DVD idea for a rainy Saturday night.
|Mail & Guardian|

Peter Feldman Disturbia is competently made and imminently watchable — but it could have benefited from a higher suspense ratio.
Barry Ronge A slick, slight but highly entertaining thriller.
Alistair Fairweather If it weren't for the instantly likeable lead actor, the entertaining Disturbia would have been another ordinary teen thriller.
Paul Arendt Disturbia is a popcorn-clutching treat.
Annlee Ellingson Hip Rear Window homage disturbed in last reel
Jason Anderson Occasionally inventive but ultimately rote teen thriller.
James Berardinelli Disturbia is a nice little mystery thriller that takes a wrong turn on the way to its climax and morphs into a slasher movie.
Peter Travers Cool stuff. Cool movie.
The film moderately works for a while until it completely unravels in the third act.
Tomatometer A tense, subtle thriller with a noteworthy performance from Shia LaBeouf.
