Trash, but always just a little creepier than you expect.

The effects never really get ahead of the characters or the script's layered personality.

The kind of horror movie that's not a bit scary and quite a bit gross.

Aims low and cheats on an ending, but meanwhile it's a bottom-shelf hoot.

For horror fans in a forgiving mood, it's an adequate fear fix.

USA Today
Fun for less than 30 of the 80-minute running time.

Contains too little of the original's campy spirit and too many whistles, bells, explosions and screams.

Austin Chronicle
It's all a bit of overkill.

New York Post
Slow-moving, yawn-inducing remake.

If your name's on the marquee, chances are your agent's already dead.
