Consensus: Steeped in gallows humor, Stuck is a taut, tense examination of a tragic accident.

Nigel Floyd
Time Out

Gordon has directed drama, such as Mamet's 'Edmond', but also visceral horror movies like 'Re-Animator'. Elements of both are evident in this taut psychological thriller.

Stuck gives a boost to the dramatic elements of the story, while preserving the stern lesson about a society crumbling under the weight of self-interest and moral decay.

Stuck is not only the most entertaining horror flick to hit North American theatres this year, it's arguably the top Canadian shocker of all time.

Chicago Reader

As the title of this splatter comedy by writer-director Stuart Gordon indicates, he's like a bug stuck to her windshield, and that's about the level of humanity and insight one can expect here.

Globe and Mail

You might hope for fiction to bring insight to senseless cruelty, rather than augment the ignominy of the original crime.

Renee Schonfeld
Common Sense Media

Darkly funny morality tale for mature gore lovers.

It's a grueling little noirish thriller with slasher-worthy gore.

Stuck lost me the moment it started going for cheap laughs. Are we really meant to snicker at his suffering and at this awful, awful woman?

Fernando F. Croce

A compact, lurid tabloid item that blows the lid off mundane human insensitivity

Oooh. This is a really gritty and interesting movie about realistic (sickeningly so) villainy. Nothing that happens in this movie is simple, and it would be a… More

Serviceable B-movie schlock horror with atleast an original premise if not execution.

This movie was terribly difficult to watch. Not because it was a bad film, but because it felt so raw and real in a way that made the viewer very intentionally… More

Stuart Gordon makes lots of strange choices with his films. I love his work, but Stuck was the strangest of his choices, to me anyway. I really didn't care… More
