Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Thinner continues in a kind of cartoony vein, almost making fun of itself as it goes along, but not exactly getting any laughs."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Mediocre Steven King adaptation. Interesting horror idea in light of society's obsession with dieting, but really just another horror movie."
‑ Fred Topel,
"A constantly absorbing little chiller directed by the underrated Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child's Play)."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily

‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Stephen King's freakiest film in eons"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
