Critic Reviews

Liked
Utterly bizarre and entirely ridiculous – and yet effective, an imaginative Guignol festival, like the goriest of soap operas, in which one wrong move opens a portal to hell.
— Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian)
Didn't Like
This is a movie without wit, style or reason, and the true horror is that actors were made to portray, and technicians to realize, its bankruptcy of imagination.
— Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times)
