"As relatively low-budget and quickly made teen shockers go, it's not too hard to take."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Put together by some of the production team responsible for "The X Files," "Behavior" frequently captures the same weird/wacky atmosphere found in some of that series' more lighthearted episodes."

"A high-concept horror picture that squanders its premise from the first frame."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"Surely, it's a definite solid thriller with very good performances, it just could be so much more with a little polish on the screenplay."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...the filmmakers have such contempt for their target teenage audience, they don't bother with explanations."

"It's like the makers of this film were so desperate to get a film together that they went to a horror paint-by-numbers book to get everything they needed."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"Cool kids go crazy -- why don't the nerds ever rise up?"
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"boring and predictable"
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Marsden has blue eyes and clean-cut looks tailor-made for a Bop pinup--and all the emotional depth and acting range of the page it would be printed on."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
