    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The violence and mayhem are constant, though the movie's style is refreshingly old-fashioned -- scream- and laughter-inducing, rather than coldly repulsive in the modern fashion. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    With moments of mind-bending creepiness, the film has potential, but eventually it devolves into merely a head-scratcher. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Cusack is especially good in a role that's got more (and less) going on under the surface, while Peet offers up another coltish, trash-mouthed vamp. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    A fascinating movie that, if you are able to make the leap it asks of you at about the three-quarter mark, will give you something to think and talk about for days. One thing is certain: It isn't predictable. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A slick, bloody thriller, but it's also, to its credit, a genuine whodunit. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Just loopy enough to be tantalizing, involving, and fun. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Builds steadily from its smarter-than-your-average-horror-film beginnings to a genuinely cunning psychological thriller with a third-act twist guaranteed to shock even the most eagle-eyed watchers. show more
