"Creaky, foggy, pale."
(Ross Anthony, HOLLYWOOD REPORT CARD)
"The Others has so many touches reminiscent of The Sixth Sense that it becomes distracting."
(Dan Fazio, CITYSEARCH)
"Is caught in its own netherworld, twixt somber and somnolent."
(Terry Lawson, DETROIT FREE PRESS)
"The fact that the big surprise is so obvious makes the deliberate pacing seem painfully slow."
(Maitland McDonagh, TV GUIDE'S MOVIE GUIDE)
"Suffers from an easily predicted 'twist' ending that spoils the chill factor."
(Sean Means, SALT LAKE TRIBUNE)
"Rarely has one absorbing premise unraveled so quickly under the weight of the ludicrous twist."
(Sean O'Connell, ECLIPSE MAGAZINE)
"Overall, Almenabar offers too little, too late in the story for viewers who like a sporting chance to out-think their thrillers."
(Susan Stark, DETROIT NEWS)
"In drawing out his effects, Amenabar is a little too confident that style can substitute for substance."
(Roger Ebert)
"Too polite, too subdued for its own good."
(Glenn Lovell, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS)
"An unconvincing, pretentiously artsy pastiche of just about every hoary old gothic thriller you can think of."
(Lou Lumenick, NEW YORK POST)
