"self-conscious and silly, but directed with such manipulative panache that you too will feel as if you are being strung along by a deranged, sadistic puppetmaster... there are images here that will burn themselves right onto your retina."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"While the slight story and gore factor rate low, the Argento style is in full flourish. ... Four Flies on Grey Velvet is worthy of all the nostalgic buzz."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"Exposes a reality made increasingly opaque by mania, technology, sexual tumult"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"As far as Argento films go, none come weirder than the little-seen Four Flies on Grey Velvet."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"As whodunits go, this is more of a "who cares". But as a work of celluloid skill, Four Flies on Grey Velvet has no equal. It's a great, great film."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
