Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The contemporary setting works against the kind of tale that was even a bit silly in the pre-heart-transplant era."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A lot of betwixt-and-between movies came out in this era: sleazy B-pictures with major stars...and classier studio projects that dabbled in explicit sex and gore. Corruption fits both of those descriptions."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"The concept of face -- as a noun, as a verb, as the mask that hides and exposes our emotions, as the anchor to our definition of self -- is so essential to human identity that horror films that hinge on the disfigurement of the face have a special power."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Satisfactorily plotted, with superb performances from Cushing and Lloyd, who manage to elevate the unseemly appetites of the script with class, turning cheap theatrics into an absorbing depiction of manipulation."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Peter Cushing is over-the-top crazy in this grindhouse-style goreathon. It's hard to imagine the filmmakers didn't know the end product would be campy."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"An uninspiring, revolting and potty British grand guignol."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
