Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Rea, with his hangdog looks and Jimmy Stewart line readings, spends a good deal of his time writhing in fake blood and broken shards - not what you'd call glamorous work, but he does it with conviction.

TV Guide

By Ken Fox
A drum-tight, extremely grisly thriller. And odd as it may sound given the subject matter, it's also surprisingly funny.

NPR

By Bob Mondello
Stuart Gordon's inventions -- vivid, gruesome and occasionally quite funny -- offer a just-deserts ending and make both characters surprisingly active participants in their fates.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Gordon made similar lurches all over the map in his previous exercise in grotesquerie, "Edmond," which was based on a David Mamet play and starred William H. Macy as, of all things, a racist misogynist on a grisly bender. Stuck could have used some of that outrageousness.
