Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hampered by narrative incoherence, sluggish pacing and emotionally remote characters."
‑ David Rooney, Variety
"the line that separates "clever" from "confusing" is very thin"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"Trauma is obviously not the scariest film ever made, but it has a fair good crack."
‑ Alexandra Sim-Wise, FilmFocus
"There's an eerie creepiness about this psychological thriller that really gets into your head."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"A sleek psychological thriller outwitted by its own hyper craftsmanship."
‑ Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
"isn't so much confusing as it is bafflingly uninspired and stupid"
‑ Christopher Null,
"...the movie plays like a second rate Jacob's Ladder..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"By the time the narrative starts heading somewhere remotely interesting (i.e. a murder or a revelation or just SOMEthing), you may be too groggy to notice..."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"A meandering, incoherent tale of a car crash victim coming to grips with his life after coming out of a coma."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"A film this unpleasant should at least be absorbing. This one is a hard film to get into and it really does not reward that effort."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"Influenced by Japanese horror movies... we are treated to ants running free, TVs which transmit nothing but hiss, spooky psychiatrists and mediums to little or no purpose."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Lurks around like it's some kind of innovative, all-original psychological thriller, when in fact it rates a big fat "so what?""
‑ Eric D. Snider,
