Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the best of Hammer's psychological thrillers, mainly thanks to Richard Matheson's ingenious and terrifying script."
‑ , Time Out
"Throw-away Tallulah Bankhead vehicle is a curiosity at best."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"Has tremendous tension, especially for a film that sticks close to its formal kidnapping plot."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"The last time Miss Bankhead appeared in a film was in the 1953 Main Street to Broadway. Although she towers above the cast and story, her present effort adds little to her record."
‑ A.H. Weiler, New York Times
"Magnificent scenery chewing from Tallulah in a pretty good thriller with smart direction."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"As crazy as the tale was, it all seemed possible."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Bankhead is superbly cast and performs far above par."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A piece of noisy fluff."
‑ John G. Nettles, PopMatters
