A superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame “horror” films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.

Although the movie’s foremost goal is to deliver big laughs, it gets points for taking seriously the trauma of parents who are forced to loosen the reins and let go.

The cast is top-notch and the characters are sufficiently likable but the movie’s vanilla narrative repeatedly offers unsurprising plot points.

Director Harbaugh presents grief as it is, in all its pain and ugliness, rather than using the convenient, uplifting short-hand that Hollywood prefers.

"Wilde Salome" falls into the category of an “interesting failure”; the experience is a mixed bag likely successful only for those who enjoy cinematic experiments.

This concept, although suitable for a short, is too thin for a full animated feature and wears out its welcome long before the end credits arrive.

One of the year’s most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures.

Doesn’t hold up quite as well as it did during the late 1980s but it still generates suspense and O’Quinn’s performance has lost none of its power.

Like nearly all unnecessary sequels, it’s the wedding of “bigger is better” with “more of the same.”

If the movie’s ending underwhelms, that’s one of the few aspects that disappoints in this edgy, captivating motion picture.
