Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A hangout movie when all's said and done."
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"This more streamlined thriller about another telekinetic girl (Amy Irving) has few supporters, but it revealed further development in De Palma's storytelling skills."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"One of De Palma's flawed-yet-fascinating early experiments."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"DePalma's most-underrated movie."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Above average supernatural doings with Kirk Douglas and some paranormal youngsters."
‑ Steve Crum,
"The movie that draws the deepest line in the sand between De Palma apologists and De Palma maniacs."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"De Palma's follow up to "Carrie." Look for Darryl Hannah in her first role."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"A guilty pleasure horror outing, with a dynamite finale that's a blast!"
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"a pointless but exciting mishmash of action scenes and psychic effects, supported by a cast of reliable and attractive performers."
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"An often overlooked De Palma effort. A highly entertaining supernatural thriller with a number of visually stunning set pieces and an unforgettably explosive finish."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Seriously unnerving."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Cassavetes is a great villain."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
