Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The production is strange, but for the wrong reasons."
‑ Phil Hall, Film Threat
"Should suit the many fans of Hedy Lamarr."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Despite its higher budget and starrier cast, the tale is no less mad than Ulmer's Skid Row hallucinations"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Grim look at an evil femme fatale and the men she lures into murder, it is far from Ulmer's best."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
