Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The story is so basic that it makes a fine template for an exercise in style, and Koepp layers on the details with great relish.
Rotten: Adapted from a Stephen King novella, the film lurches tiredly through the author's favorite masochistic-narcissistic fantasy, subjecting a woebegone writer to a gauntlet of abuse.
Fresh: An eerie, playful thriller and an all-around entertaining time at the movies.
Rotten: It's a slight story to begin with, and the movie teeters on camp with its jokey filler material.
I can honestly say this was a good movie it had lots of suspense and room to keep u wondering
He is a great actor and his movies are great. This movie kept me on my toes! I thought I knew what was going to happen at the ending, but I was so totally WRONG! You like suspense? Get it. Simple as that.
Secret Window it's the best movie in the world about drama.
