Critic Reviews for Close Your Eyes

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (20)

  • The atmospheric psychological thriller weaves a compelling web thanks to dense, stylized direction by Nick Willing and a smartly assembled cast.

    May 24, 2004
  • ... one of the best thrillers I've seen probably since The Ring.

    April 26, 2004
  • On their way to confront ancient evil, Strother and Losey keep tripping over timeworn cliches.

    April 23, 2004
  • An occasionally engaging but more often gruesome British thriller.

    April 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/4
  • If you can overlook its TV-episode look, occasional lapses in logic and detours into lurid overkill, this old-school psychological thriller, which marries a tracking-the- serial-killer narrative with occult themes, is a creepy diversion.

    April 22, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • May be the worst-directed movie exported by England in this young century.

    April 22, 2004 | Rating: 1/4

    Unremarkable occult thriller except this one employs a visionary hypnotist as part of the story. Passable, nothing more gripping than that.

    The British film Close Your Eyes was better than I anticipated. It had some good suspense moments, thrills and twists. Goran Visnjic was stellar in his portrayal of a hypnotherapist with gifts. The film seemed to slowly lose it's self partway through.
