Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's entertaining enough in a hysterical sort of way, even if it never matches up to the excesses of Fuller's later Shock Corridor."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"For the audience of today, the primary draw of the picture is watching Olivia de Havilland deliver a particularly terrifying performance."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"This remains one of the best screen explorations of mental illness and its treatment."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"As one of Hollywood's first "serious" chronicles of life in an asylum, the film is uneven, containing some intelligent observations but also lurid sequences and simplistic psychological explanations."
