It's an obvious, overlong, determined misfire of a motion picture...ambitious, but it's also fatally flawed.

one long, slow buildup to a surprise ending that conceals two or three twisting secrets while still remaining elusive and open to interpretation.

...a misguided and thoroughly pointless piece of work.

Note to the writers: Just because a movie is a mystery doesn't mean everything in it has to be.

It's a wit-free homage to Hitchcock and M. Night Shyamalan that, for all its slick presentation, never comes close to hitting the mark of its forebears.

A surprisingly engrossing two-person character study that (gradually) reveals something quite a bit darker beneath the surface.

Is a much different film than "Hatchet." It's focused, it's low key, it's original, and it really takes its plot seriously...

Spiral is an interesting experiment in the evocation of things that do not actually exist, and it succeeds with sizzle.

Bluesy background music plus a rainy Portland setting enhance the gloomy feel of 'Spiral' and help draw us into the world of its disturbed lead character.

"The camera moves are jarring at times and soothing at others ... a skillful, well crafted piece."
