Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director John Polson mutes the conservative sexual politics of the original film, focusing on the lightweight, efficient suspense story."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's like going to a house party and watching the host defend himself against a frothing ex-girlfriend. You don't want to call the cops. You want to call Domino's."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Haven't we all seen this already? Too many times?"
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Bradford spends the entire film with an Andrew Shue-ish sullen, slack-jawed expression, but even that's more than what the bland Appleby brings to her doormat role."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Seguindo o tom juvenil (no sentido pejorativo da palavra) do roteiro, podemos descrever este filme com uma regra de três simples: Fixação está para Atração Fatal assim como Erika Christensen está para Glenn Close."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It would be so easy for an actress to overplay this role, to morph into high camp, but Christensen stays icy cool."
‑ Sheila Norman-Culp, Associated Press
"Not really a thriller so much as a movie for teens to laugh, groan and hiss at."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"I've seen this before, it's called "Fatal Attraction"..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A mean-spirited, incompetent disaster."
‑ Brett Buckalew, FilmStew.com
"No points for originality, but young audiences will lap up the mix of nubile teens and cheap shocks, while the solid performances provide something for less hormone-ravaged viewers."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"Only the very easily pleased will be able to see past its limitations."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"The story may not be new, but Australian director John Polson, making his American feature debut, jazzes it up adroitly."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"A tapestry of loose ends."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Was anybody clamoring for yet another teen movie? Or, even worse, a teen version of Fatal Attraction?"
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"...fifty minutes of tedious adolescent melodramatics followed by thirty-five minutes of inflated nonsense."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
