...the screenplay...doesn't contain an ounce of subtlety or even intelligence.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
All told, Ruby is responsible for more deaths than the villain. What a spunky little heroine.
| Original Score: 1/4
the suspense genre has all but ceased to be suspenseful . . . it's business as usual, and the blades in the cookie cutter are getting dull.
| Original Score: 2/5
With debut director Sackheim struggling to infuse the pedestrian plot with any sense of vigour, 'The Glass House' is rendered less memorable with every passing minute.
Creepy psychothriller features great performances, twisty plot and superbly crafted moments of tension.
| Original Score: 4/5
It takes its place in the fiery depths of movie hell, where even there it seems too stupid to fit in.
begins as a fairly intriguing study of alienation, only to end up as a far-fetched "let's get outta here!" thriller. ... Ruby proves to be so adept at last-minute disappearances, you'd think her grandfather was Houdini.
The Glass House es una cinta de suspenso que conjunta un buen elenco, pero por desgracia el guión cae en lo ilógico en varias ocasiones.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
Starts with unfulfilled promise, builds towards a laughable tedium, and ultimately shoots itself in the foot with its repulsive conclusion.
| Original Score: 1/4
Hamlet, and some good acting, keep the film from being a stinker, but it never rises above mediocrity.
| Original Score: 2/4
Tiene el estilo de las películas realizadas exclusivamente para la televisión, del tipo de las de HBO.
[The] world needs another adolescent empowerment fable like it needs air pollution.
All one leaves the theatre with is the urge to beg Hollywood to stop this endless cycle of mindless horror flicks.
A first-rate melodrama, one that might have played nicely in theatres as a second feature back in the early '60s.
the screenplay ... is stupefyingly obvious and relies far too frequently on convenient discoveries and overheard conversations
Either way, it's a bad film, and one that's certainly worth seeing.
| Original Score: 5/10
Wesley Strick, the screenwriter, is my hero. I admire anyone who's figured out how to do as little work as he does and still make a good living.
A formulaic film that is more typical than terrible.
Just another mindless slasher film.
| Original Score: C
Falls short of the suspense and drama it pretends to be built on.
