Engaging film style is buoyed by an infectious sense of fun and punctuated by wild and woolly character turns. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
Deliciously witty and entertaining A first-rate thriller, one that's likely to generate as much word-of-mouth as "Alien,'' "Carrie'' and "Psycho'' did in their time. [23 Aug 1991, Daily Notebook, p.F1] Full Review
James Berardinelli
Dead Again does not come across as a Hitchcock knock-off, but as a motion picture that incorporates familiar themes and approaches while maintaining its own integrity and identity. Not once during the entire production is there an obviously stolen scene or camera angle replication. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
With its stylized black-and-white sequences and fast-paced melodramatic plot, this homage to film noir is both intense and purposely self-conscious. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Branagh has mastered the tricky high-wire act of simultaneously kidding the conventions he is being absolutely faithful to, allowing us to squeal with both fright and knowing laughter. His is a film lover's film [23 Aug 1991, Calendar, p.F1] Full Review
