Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Better than most of its kind."
‑ , Time Out
"Just a little more skillfully done than many of its contemporaries, and whatever esteem I have for it is largely nostalgic, but at least it tries to be different."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Holds the tension in a bone-chilling manner."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Really darn great by slasher standards, and even kind of pretty good by the standards of decent, functional, God-fearing modes of cinema."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Sends you a chill down the spine that won't subside until those final few minutes...see it before the upcoming remake"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"A run-of-the-mill slasher film whose central gimmick is setting its action on a train."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Just another slasher picture."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
