Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film of genre-busting twists and devilish narrative turns that never manages to turn its quirkiness into genuine charm nor its cleverness into real feeling."
‑ Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
"Lacks a sense of enveloping eeriness, of a creeping suspense driving scenes forward. . . . packs all its power into its punchy conclusion."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"...well acted and certainly well made...but ultimately, it's just not terribly interesting."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A competently handled puzzler whose derivative resolution proves its undoing."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A chilly and efficient thriller."
‑ David Schmeichel, Jam! Movies
"Lucid tries one's patience, more maddening than it is elucidating."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"If only it all made sense. If only Lucid really was that clear."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
