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.

It surely does not contain any socially redeeming value.

The movie revels in the kind of sadism it criticizes.

Top Critic

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

New York Times
Top Critic

This movie lacks the courage to admit what it is really about.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

The direction is slick (occasionally too slick) and the acting adequate, although none of this can save the film once it begins to go astray.
