Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Gardens of the Night is a harrowing story of kidnapping and forced child prostitution that conjures a world entirely populated by predators and prey. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Nov 10, 2008

Rotten: Do these heartbreaking stories exist in the real world? Yes, yes, they do. Does dramatizing these stories with nothing to add except a certain cruel wallowing in the existence of unspeakable human depravity serve any real purpose? No, no, it does not. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The film never quite recovers from writer-director Damian Harris's dithering way of shooting things. – Ed Gonzalez, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Good acting and sincere direction by Damian Harris act as beacons to light the haunting corridors of an underworld spook house. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010
