    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    Lange seems at a loss to know how to convey Martha's malevolence -- and writer-director Jonathan Darby offers almost no guidance. show more

    Susan Wloszczyna USA Today

    t's far too soon for an actress as vital as Jessica Lange to stoop to Bette Davis-Joan Crawford horror-hag histrionics. [6 Mar 1998, pg.04D] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The kind of movie where you walk in, watch the first 10 minutes, know exactly where it's going, and hope devoutly that you're wrong. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    This trashy, overwrought thriller gets itself worked up into a fine, sleazy lather that recalls the matricidal glories "Die! Die! My Darling!" and "You'll Like My Mother", then wimps out at the end. show more

    Lange and Paltrow give it their all, but they can't save this one from plot holes, continuity mistakes, and heartlessness. show more

    Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly

    When you watch this failed horror thriller -- which has been under studio doctors' care for some two years, undergoing futile title changes and reshoots -- there's no respite from the odor of flop sweat stinking up the screen. show more
