Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In a world where Redacted exists, Raising Cain isn't De Palma's least effective picture, but it's damn near close, purposely unreasonable and shockingly leaden all the way."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Creepy and effective"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Laughably awful"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Rather than clarifying, De Palma's technique with Raising Cain effectively obliterates the audience's bearings."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"Weak thriller. Lost potential. Lithgow is good."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Brian De Palma's cruel joke on his fans."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"A respectable if overly campy De Palma thriller. Like the director's Body Double, this plays better the second time you watch it."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"De Palma's worst film"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"De Palma is a director who has managed to annoy as many people as he's won over, so why should this movie be any different?"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
