Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In this unenlightening, dramatized account of Gacy's crime spree, first-time writer-director Clive Saunders, working with television writer David Birke, displays little genuine interest in why Gacy killed."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Gacy channels its horror through bicentennial suburban kitsch, clowns-in-the-closet visuals, and a heaving, foul, maggot-carpeted crawlspace deep with death and lies."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"i'm pretty sure Gacy's life wasn't this boring"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"We barely learn a thing about [Gacy], other than the fact that his father abused him and he hates his wife."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Was this movie really necessary? Sickoid film content is far from entertaining."
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
