Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's certainly entertaining enough and made with great style, but the whole thing feels slightly undercooked."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"Efficient, suitably anonymous chiller."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"How someone who could helm a film as relentlessly creepy and suspenseful as The Hitcher could deliver a dud like They is beyond me."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"I've seen They twice now, once theatrically and once via DVD, and...for the life of me...I can't tell you what it's about."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"With the cheesiest monsters this side of a horror spoof, which They isn't, it is more likely to induce sleep than fright."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Stinks from start to finish, like a wet burlap sack of gloom."
‑ Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
"They ought to be a whole lot scarier than they are in this tepid genre offering."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"The last ten minutes of the film really stuck with me."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"On the heels of The Ring comes a similarly morose and humorless horror movie that, although flawed, is to be commended for its straight-ahead approach to creepiness."
‑ Nick Rogers, State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
"Harmon ... does crank up the tension, getting nicely petrified performances from the young cast."
‑ Rich Cline, Film Threat
"The attempt to build up a pressure cooker of horrified awe emerges from the simple fact that the movie has virtually nothing to show."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Represents something very close to the nadir of the thriller/horror genre."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"'Wes Craven Presents.' Such an endorsement is meant to be a mark of quality, and indeed it is--bad quality, that is."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The movie's gloomy atmosphere is fascinating, though, even if the movie itself doesn't stand a ghost of a chance."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Characters wander into predictably treacherous situations even though they should know better."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
