    Brendan Kelly of Variety called it "an efficient psychological thriller" that "becomes a tad predictable". Nathan Rabin of The A.V. Club called it "stagey, badly written, and mind-numbingly predictable". TV Guide rated it 2/4 stars and called it "a sometimes gripping, sometimes frustrating suspense drama". Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times called it "relentlessly obvious and tedious".

    It has been compared to the 1998 film Very Bad Things.
