Boxoffice Magazine
With bubbles of nascent arousal frothing at the film's feminine surface, Moth Diaries' commercial potential is likely to hinge on whether or not audiences can stand to be confronted with the confusion they felt as adolescents. Full Review

Slant Magazine
This is one vampire film whose sexless, generic ending betrays a promise of revisionist complexity. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
They've taken an intriguing story about female neuroses with gothic overtones and turned it into a graceless, butt-ugly attempt at Twilight-lite. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Roiling with jealousy, suicide and latent lesbian urges, The Moth Diaries dances on the border between hallucination and reality without fully committing to either. Yet the film's narrative frailties are offset by impeccable performances and a consistently eerie tone, helped along by a location as forbidding as the "Overlook." Full Review

New York Daily News
Director Mary Harron ("American Psycho") can do little with this bloodless drama. Full Review
