... a script that, for all its early interest, falls into lockstep as quickly as you can say "teen exploitation."

Dangerously Close is more than just a stylish shocker. It captures the ugly underside of a new teen-age obsession, forcing us to marvel at its ferocity and shudder at its possible consequences.

The movie revels in the kind of sadism it criticizes.

Unfortunately, the adolescent world created within the film extends to its conception.
