WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

40

Time Out by

A much more conventional and unexciting piece of work.
75

Slant Magazine by Ed Gonzalez

Dario Argento undervalues his material, but his set pieces are glorious enough that the film’s plot contrivances can be forgiven.
83

The A.V. Club by Keith Phipps

For all its nonsensical qualities, it also contains some of Argento's most hallucinatory images and unforgettable setpieces, as always reason enough to watch even when the usual reasons are nowhere to be found.
100

Empire by Kim Newman

The kind of film that starts off with a climax and builds to a plateau of surrealist delirium that, one way or another, will have you shrieking.
75

The A.V. Club by Scott Tobias

The writing is clumsy, with information packed crudely into the dialogue, and his attention to the performances is inversely proportional to his attention to style. Yet his “New York” has an eerie, deserted, otherworldly quality—much as Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut would later—and some of the individual setpieces are spectacularly vibrant.
