For fans of Hitchcock, it will be obvious that this isn't one of his best, but, as always, the atmosphere of suspense and mystery that he creates makes the film worth seeing.

Spellbound lands as one of Hitchcock's classics but it's far from his best work.
September 26, 2002
an incessantly talky film, with every significant action being explained in long-winded speeches about guilt and repression
September 22, 2002
once again Hitchcock's camera is the star of the film, elevating its status

The pat psychoanalytic answers seem all too easy by today's standards, but that really doesn't take away from enjoyment of this classic film.

It sounds utterly schematic, but this top-notch production redeems the majority of the clichs.

A syrupy serving of Freudian analysis that looks tempting but tastes of too much superego, id, and subconscious jive to be taken seriously.

All in all, Spellbound is more than solid, although still overrated psychological thriller. Its true importance lies not in its quality, but in the roads Hitchcock paved for future filmmakers in it.

The best suspense film dealing with psychoanalysis that I can remember.

Not to be speechless about it, David O. Selznick has a rare film in Spellbound.
