Boston Globe
Could have been a classy thriller. But all the Aramaic in the world can't save it from its own pounding slickness.

Chicago Sun-Times
Possibly the funniest movie ever made about Catholicism. It confuses the phenomenon of stigmata with satanic possession.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Begins with a scene of mass repentance, but the real sin here is a profligate waste of talent.

Miami Herald
A garish clashing of sacred images and bloody semihorror, this is a movie that defines the category: interesting failure.

USA Today
The scariest thing about this appalling and seemingly endless movie is that you paid for your ticket and now have to sit through it.

New York Daily News
By the time the credits roll and a disclaimer informs us that there may, in fact, be a lost gospel of Jesus and that it is being suppressed by the Church, all we can think to say is, "Ah, shaudup!"

New York Post
What a bloody disappointment Stigmata is!

Rolling Stone
There should be a place in hell for hacks who turn out derivative terror trash and then pretend they're doing an important investigative piece on Vatican corruption.

An incomprehensible mess.

Entertainment Weekly
A crude, silly supernatural thriller.

San Francisco Chronicle
What is bloody and full of holes?
