“It’s not as artistic as Argento or Bava’s efforts, but it’s got some good scenes in its running time, some good performances, and a few intriguing themes that run through the picture.” [1]

“Rose’s pacing is a shade too leisurely but does a fair job weaving a mounting sense of paranoia and unease before the insane and enjoyable last fifteen minutes.” [2]

“I would have to put this at the bottom of the pile as far as giallo films.” [3]
