Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Initially tolerable but increasingly stupid."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"The writing is so bad that it's impossible not to laugh out loud at scenes intended to be scary or serious."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"The usually dependable Rob Cohen directs from a ludicrous script."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"It is so unbelievably ludicrous that I couldn't help but think that it was intentional despite Rob Cohen's constant attempts to convince me otherwise."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"The filmmakers would rather exploit and inflame a class war than deconstruct it."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
"The movie's unintentionally played like a comedy all the way."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"It's so ludicrous in so many different ways it achieves a kind of forlorn grandeur."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's amazing that so many viewers were still seated by the time the end credits began to roll."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"[Cohen] has a knack for making the most ridiculous material suspenseful."
‑ Susan Tavernetti, Palo Alto Weekly
"Through pure mismanagement, The Skulls bungles a rich seam of material."
‑ Xan Brooks, Sight and Sound
"In an otherwise boneheaded hour and a half of intrigue and silliness, The Skulls does offer one of the more memorable lines of dialogue in recent movies."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The Skulls plummets into the realm of ludicrous failure."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"...above-average teen thriller."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A dark, stupid tale."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"With large amounts of alcohol and the right friends, it might be a Mystery Science Theater 3000-level hoot. Otherwise, The Skulls is a crime against humanity."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
