Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Plodding, campy haunted-house chiller."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"One of those comfortable relics that doesn't scare so much as mildly chill."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Haunted house completists should check it out, but don't expect a classic."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Tepid old house thriller marginally redeemed by Reed and Bette Davis."

‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
