TNT RoughCut - Unnamed
Wes Craven continues to explore (and blur) the lines between reelity and reality with his latest, and perhaps best, cinematic slice of horror.

Dallas Observer - Andy Klein
Craven's other accomplishment here, besides resuscitating the genre, is the way he keeps things scary even when they're at their funniest. The grand finale, while thoroughly bloody and tense, has some genuinely hilarious shtick.
70
TV Guide Magazine - Frank Lovece
Compared with most of what passes for scary movies these days, this is golden: It's not stupid, it's not wussy and it pulls off a couple of pretty nasty jolts.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Liam Lacey
May not be the most scary or the grossest horror film you've ever seen, but it has one distinct feature: it actually talks up to the audience. By the conclusion, you won't be shaking in your seat, but you may enjoy the status of someone who has earned a Master's in Slashology.

Chicago Tribune - John Petrakis
Pretty run-of-the-mill stuff. [20 December 1996, Friday, p.J]
