A B-grade murder mystery with a sci-fi twist.

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

A diverting, very well-made thriller. Far-fetched, but everyone except the most captious sticklers for logic will likely exit satisfied.

Fred Topel

Surprisingly effective thriller. Each time he takes the brain juice, another part of the msytery unravels.

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

The plot involves the presence of brain fluid -- no small irony, since the makers of this goof could have used some themselves, if only to avoid concocting a movie riddled with so many ridiculous coincidences and downright stupid characters.

Clint Morris

A tight, tense, taut thriller with a killer-sting in it's tail

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Curiously forgettable.

Emanuel Levy

Is that what happens to a gifted indie helmer when he gets 20 million for a schlocky movie that, contrary to the title, is utterly forgettable due to a dull, wholesome heroine (miscast Fiorentino), who may be Dahl's penance for his earlier, gutsier femmes

incorrectly named so called thriller, the blame lies in the script not the leads.
Dean McKenna
Good chilling, crackpot thriller involves several transfers of brain fluid between dead and living people but no credible smarts of its own.
Stephen Skudlarek
Really bad. I get where this film was going, and I appreciate the psychological aspect, but it just ends up being clumsy and stupid. Not worth seeing.
