Rotten: Not even horror fans who can answer all this film's knowing trivia questions may be fully comfortable with such an exploitative mix. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Oct 8, 2014

Fresh: A bravura, provocative sendup of horror pictures that's also scary and gruesome yet too swift-moving to lapse into morbidity. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Oct 8, 2014

Fresh: Scream builds to a splattering finale that should leave genre fans highly satisfied. Here's one of the year's better thrillers. – Dave Kehr, New York Daily News, Oct 6, 2013

Fresh: The best fright fest of the '90s. – Richard Harrington, Washington Post, Sep 21, 2007
