“An empty-headed horror movie with nothing to recommend it beyond the disco-inspired art direction and some handsome, if gimmicky, cinematography.” – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“It is depressing to watch an expensive, crafty movie that never soars beyond its cold desire to score the big bucks.” – Frank Rich, Time Magazine
