Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Variety Joe Leydon

    A surprisingly effective teen-skewing thriller that soft-pedals graphic violence (in marked contrast to the R-rated 1980 original) while generating a fair degree of suspense.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times

    This is as listless, mindless and utterly useless a piece of corporate brain-clog as one is likely to come across for quite some time.

  • 20

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    The movie offers less gore than the average Band-Aid commercial and fewer scares than the elimination episodes of "Dancing With the Stars."
