#1 on Martin Scorsese's 11 Scariest Horror Films Of All Time!

A dark brooding atmosphere, disturbing psychological insights and a handful of suddenly executed surprises make this old horror as fresh and vital as the day it was made. - Film 4

What makes the film so effective is not so much the slightly sinister characterisation of the generally neurotic group, but the fact that Wise makes the house itself the central character, a beautifully designed and highly atmospheric entity.- Derek Adams, Time Out

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards including Best Director & Picture. Winner of the Best Original Screenplay Oscar!

Like "Citizen Kane," Pulp Fiction is constructed in such a nonlinear way that you could see it a dozen times and not be able to remember what comes next. - Roger Ebert

The first masterwork of the post-modern pop culture generation... gets better with every viewing, and like good rock n' roll, needs to be played loud! - Brad Laidman, Film Threat

The Citizen Kane of cheerleader movies. - Roger Ebert

That rare teen-skewing film that manages to please its audience (basically by not being boring), while smuggling in clever, subversive elements for older men desperate to justify their ninety-minute leer. - Jeremy Smith, Ain't It Cool News

Because we are human, because we are bound by gravity and the limitations of our bodies, because we live in a world where the news is often bad and the prospects disturbing, there is a need for another world somewhere, a world where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers live. - Roger Ebert

Finally, thanks more to Fred Astaire than any other single influence, the character of musicomedy in the cinema has now completely changed. - Time Magazine

- plus on the same bill -

It's smart, modern, and impressive in every respect. - Variety

Of all of the places the movies have created, one of the most magical and enduring is the universe of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. - Roger Ebert
