Anna Smith quote iconThe eventual ending is certainly thought-provoking, its ambiguity both laudable and frustrating. It's still a slight story, but Cusack's charisma keeps the build-up watchable, and the denoument just the right side of far-fetched.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThis is the most mature horror movie of the year - far more adult and sophisticated than the tedious Hostel Part II. If you like to be creeped out by movies, this is one to see. It reminds us what it's like to be scared in a theater rather than overwhelmed by buckets of blood and gore.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconHafstrom wisely takes the path King intended: to plumb the violence of the mind. Heebie-jeebies are guaranteed.

ScreenIt
quote iconOnly partially works on a superficial level that never really gets under your skin.
