Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Note to the writers: Just because a movie is a mystery doesn't mean everything in it has to be."
‑ Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times
"one long, slow buildup to a surprise ending that conceals two or three twisting secrets while still remaining elusive and open to interpretation."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Is a much different film than "Hatchet." It's focused, it's low key, it's original, and it really takes its plot seriously..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Bluesy background music plus a rainy Portland setting enhance the gloomy feel of 'Spiral' and help draw us into the world of its disturbed lead character."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"It's a wit-free homage to Hitchcock and M. Night Shyamalan that, for all its slick presentation, never comes close to hitting the mark of its forebears."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"A surprisingly engrossing two-person character study that (gradually) reveals something quite a bit darker beneath the surface."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Spiral is an interesting experiment in the evocation of things that do not actually exist, and it succeeds with sizzle."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"...a misguided and thoroughly pointless piece of work."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's an obvious, overlong, determined misfire of a motion picture...ambitious, but it's also fatally flawed."
‑ Brian Orndorf, DVDTalk.com
""The camera moves are jarring at times and soothing at others ... a skillful, well crafted piece.""
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
