Critic Reviews for Distorted

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Ricci is convincingly terrified in a film that's never scary enough to justify her performance.

June 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Distorted leaves viewers with a disjointed, unoriginal story, a made-for-TV feel, and underwhelming thrills, with the only saving graces being the presence of Ricci and Cusack.

July 18, 2018 | Full Review…

"Distorted" plays one too many tricks, and its casting is abysmal.

June 28, 2018 | Rating: D | Full Review…

All told, Distorted doesn't entirely waste but also doesn't do much justice to a premise that, in the right hands, could have elicited more thrills, more relevance, or, at least, more obvious interest in its own ideas.

June 26, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

A would-be psychological thriller that manages to be both boring and goofy...generates tedium rather than tension.

June 25, 2018 | Rating: D | Full Review…

While the premise is mildly intriguing, the film's reliance on visual gimmickry never serves to establish consistent suspense before the whole thing runs off the rails in the incoherent final act.

Audience Reviews for Distorted

½

The idea is that through state-of-the-art invasive mind control we can be made to perform acts against our will. Not a bad starting point, but the follow-through is simply all smoke and no fire. Blah.
