Subscribing to the philosophy that creepy equals interesting, the film contains barely a moment that isn't flat-footed, ludicrous or both.

Woefully amateurish.

Kidnapping thriller isn't quite "so bad, it's good," more like "so bad, it's okay."

If Ed Wood had directed "The Silence of the Lambs," it might have been as unin tentionally hilarious as the goofball would-be thriller "The Abduction of Zack Butterfield."

Village Voice

The script is often ludicrous (gratuitous digs at feminism; muddled commentary on war and the military), the sets look like sets, and the acting -- aside from Helsham and Plunkett -- doesn't even rise to the level of student films.
