At first in high spirits, the couple starts sniping at each other during the drive as tensions in their relationship bubble to the surface.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Barely makes it into the passing lane. It's stop-and-go all the way."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Thriller/mystery buffs might find the narrative slow; the thriller elements aren't introduced until the movie is nearly half over, and the mystery starts even later. But a dandy payoff will reward those who are patient."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"It's a gripping and powerful film that intrigues by the confluence of the mundane with the extraordinary."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"An exercise in intrigue and tension, and the slow, constant build-up of dread has a certain Hitchcock flair."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"Puts a tense, deteriorating marriage on a highway-bound collision course with a killer."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"[The plot] is filled with ingenious deceptions and sleight-of-hand trickery."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"One weird movie."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A peculiar and occasionally engaging thriller that unfortunately lacks thrills."
‑ Paul Doro, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"A film of pat psychology"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Before it turns into a thriller, and goes badly awry, Red Lights paints a devastating little portrait of a marriage on the rocks."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"The most ambiguously compelling romance around."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A compelling addition to the long tradition of artful French film adaptations of works of mystery and suspense literature."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Everything that ensues is exactly what we expect to ensue, doled out with a fastidiousness that places too high a priority on verisimilitude and not enough on, y'know, entertainment."
‑ Steve Schneider, Orlando Weekly
"Kahn's amazing ability to sustain a mood of impending dread makes this film a boderline classic."
‑ Anthony Del Valle, Las Vegas Mercury
