Since the movie's sensibility ranges from the preposterous to the absurd, there are few genuine frights.

A sturdy, well-made piece that never quite overcomes its structural flaws.

It has pace and variety and, best of all, it consistently has the courage of its imaginative and daring screenplay.

Feels a lot like two different Hancock jobs stitched together.

Describing what's bad about this movie is like describing what's orange about an orange, but suffice it to say that the best performance is given by a crucified raccoon.

O roteiro surpreende ao fugir do convencional e trocar o suspense pelo drama, oferecendo, no processo, ótimas atuações (especialmente de Esterman).

These twisted sisters rank among horror's most bizarro murderesses.

Somewhere between a nighttime soap opera and an EC Horror comic book...

Not great but mildly absorbing, Suspended Animation suffices for an evening's entertainment.

The film is like vomiting and then expecting your shoes to come out of your mouth. Neither is a pleasant experience, but on some level it has to be seen to be believed.

If the third-act denoument is predictable, the film has already delivered more twists than the average genre picture.

Although overlong, the picture has a fair measure of jolts and surprises.

Anyone who's seen a horror movie in the last 20 years will frequently know what's going to happen next.

More groans than gasps for this one.

The film's archly humorous, or grossly horrible, implausibilities and general premise are more acceptable than those of other unabashed chop-'em-uppers.
