Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"this unlikely outing for William Asher (Bewitched, I Love Lucy) brings a repressive, poisonous dynamic into precisely the sort of domestic space that had featured more salubriously in his earlier TV sitcoms."
‑ Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
"Tyrrell gives her career best performance as the pscyho."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Enjoyably overripe thriller with intriguing subext and a wild performance from the great Tyrrell."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
