Critic Reviews for Curtains

All Critics (7) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • Has some amazing moments even it doesn't add up to much, and there is a reason that scenes like a murder on ice have become more iconic than the film itself.

  • This film has much to say about the plight of actresses, continually blurring the lines between reality and fiction, as well as character and identity.

  • One of the tiny handful of genuinely unique one-offs in the slasher genre's history.

    December 5, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a mess, but an entertaining one thanks to Ciupka's visual ambition and ensemble work from the oddball cast, who deliver the proper level of hysteria to assist what little suspense remains.

  • On the positive side, there's Vernon and Eggar even being in the film. I enjoy these veteran actors and wish they had more to do. You can also argue the killer's mask is pretty scary. And, at least, the ice skating murder is original.

  • The closer one peers into the weird and macabre pleasures of "Curtains," the more its technical mastery and subtextual implications reveal themselves.

Audience Reviews for Curtains

    A thriller and a slasher horror movie. I enjoyed it. There are some really creepy scenes, and strange things that happen to confuse you about the killer. It's not a really great movie, but it's good for a lesser known slasher flick.

    The narrative is fragmented and parts are cheesy but as far as 80's slashers go, 'Curtains' has all the right ingredients and a solid third act. For horror fans we get a nice death scene involving a skating rink, a cool masked-killer and some stylish visuals (when the photography is not overexposed).

    Wildly uneven 80's slasher with huge gaps in both logic and plot. The mask and the toilet scene however are to be commended.

    Decent film with a somewhat cool killer, atmosphere, music, and the storyline that make it worth watching. .
