Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gordon has directed drama, such as Mamet's 'Edmond', but also visceral horror movies like 'Re-Animator'. Elements of both are evident in this taut psychological thriller."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Stuck gives a boost to the dramatic elements of the story, while preserving the stern lesson about a society crumbling under the weight of self-interest and moral decay."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"Stuck is not only the most entertaining horror flick to hit North American theatres this year, it's arguably the top Canadian shocker of all time."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"You could see it all as a darkly bizarre tale that just might be true"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Stuart Gordon's low-budget thriller is so compellingly perverse that it transcends its humble premise."
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"As the title of this splatter comedy by writer-director Stuart Gordon indicates, he's like a bug stuck to her windshield, and that's about the level of humanity and insight one can expect here."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"You might hope for fiction to bring insight to senseless cruelty, rather than augment the ignominy of the original crime."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Darkly funny morality tale for mature gore lovers."
‑ Renee Schonfeld, Common Sense Media
"It's a shaggy-dog story that spirals into garage Grand Guignol, with Suvari and Rea well-matched in uneasy roles."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"With a little more ingenuity, a few more evilly funny lines and a more interestingly written role for its female lead, this could have been a minor cult classic."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"It's a grueling little noirish thriller with slasher-worthy gore."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Stuck lost me the moment it started going for cheap laughs. Are we really meant to snicker at his suffering and at this awful, awful woman?"
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"A compact, lurid tabloid item that blows the lid off mundane human insensitivity"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Stuck is disturbing in all the right ways, turning an incredible real-life story of human callousness and suffering into a tawdry entertainment that makes guffawing, sociopathic rubbernecks of us all."
‑ , Film4
"While it'll certainly make you wince, Gordon's slapsticky execution and misguided injections of humour serve only to bleed the situation of suspense. What emerges is not so much horror as a grisly farce."
‑ Elliott Noble, Sky Movies
