Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A lame-brained nut job in search of an identity of its own."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Assorted examples of artificially flavoured humanity ... proceed to panic, bicker and run with the customary perversity that characters in situations like this do toward their gory destinies."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"My eyeballs were doing some serious rolling of their own at the general ineptitude of this failed mating of Friday the 13th and Ten Little Indians."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"A good cast is enacting this fancy rubbish; what drew them to the material besides its self-conscious cleverness is beyond me."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"With a top notch cast, wonderful direction, and a great play on an old premise, Identity is a must-see."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"A nihilist project in Usual Suspects mode: Nothing is as it seems, because nothing matters in the least."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"Deserves credit for at least trying something fresh in the psychological-thriller realm, and for the mood of goofball creepiness it creates."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"the central twist which unifies all the film's elements is so ingenious and unusual that recognising the killer ends up being just one small part of this film's multi-faceted identity."
‑ Anton Bitel, Daily Info
"The cast is game, the twists are clever, the writing is tight."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"... every predictable move comes unraveled again with an uncanny discovery."
‑ Mark Collette, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"[A] very well made horror thriller."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"More than an entertaining thriller. It's a highly original one."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Scary beyond belief serial killer thriller."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"An ingenious thriller molded from Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None". The film's incredibly entertaining even with the measurably predictable twist."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"'Uno de los mejores thrillers realizados en los últimos diez años, por lo que sería un verdadero crimen perdérselo.'"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
