Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"They're creepy and they're predictable? Mysterious and rather tame?"

"Basically plotless, this big-screen transfer of the cult TV series has some good vignettes and some good performances by Anjelica Huston, Christina Ricci and others."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
