  • Critic Reviews of "The Frighteners"

    Variety
    March 26, 2009

    Story was originally conceived as an episode of "Tales From the Crypt," and that is perhaps what it should have remained, as the thinness of the conceit shows throughout, painfully so in the first half.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    At times the relentless special effects and tangled plotting veer towards visual and narrative overkill, but the final tonal swerve is shocking and effective.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    The actors can't keep the film's mood from verging on hysteria as the story roams all over the map. "The Frighteners" has flitted everywhere, even to heaven and hell, before it's over.

    Los Angeles Times
    February 14, 2001

    Fortunately director Jackson, at home with all kinds of excess, keeps everything spinning nicely, not even losing a step when the mood turns increasingly disturbing.

    San Francisco Chronicle
    January 01, 2000

    An object lesson in what to avoid when making the transition from low-budget films to studio productions.

    USA Today
    January 01, 2000

    A mess with sporadic flashes of creativity.

    Common Sense Media
    December 15, 2010

    Violent, frenzied, foul-mouthed ghost comedy.

    Fantastica Daily
    January 23, 2006

    Despite being awful in almost every respect, The Frighteners does offer one small pleasure: R. Lee Ermey parodying his Full Metal Jacket drill sergeant character.

    Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
    December 04, 2003

    It actually works up till its last few minutes.

    KFOR Channel 4 News
    July 14, 2003

    An incredibly underrated scare-comedy from Peter Jackson that deserves a much wider audience.

    eFilmCritic.com
    March 18, 2003

    Quirky Peter Jackson film that's half comedy and half horror/gore-fest. Mostly enjoyable results, although Fox a bit miscast.

    New Times
    March 07, 2003

    Woulda been five stars, but the cop-out ending smacks of the test-screening process.
