"A half-baked, rather retarded parody of Carrie and a number of other films that, using the awesome power of their ignorance, drove telekinesis into the ground."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"Zapped! fancies itself to be the bad boy and flirts with that image, but this low-rent production is far too wholesome and blandly unfunny for that affectation to be convincing."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Not even Zap2it likes Zapped!"
‑ Michael Szymanski,
"A smarmy vehicle designed to showcase teen idols Scott (Happy Days) Baio and Willie (Eight Is Enough) Aames."
‑ , People Magazine
"Zapped!'s place as a bona fide cult classic is nothing short of baffling..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"so wretchedly unfunny, it boggles the mind"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The only possible reason to watch this one is for the nostalgia factor."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"Surprisingly, the special effects aren't bad but they're wasted in a film that features a vomiting contest as a highlight. Skip this one."
