The events unfold as a series of ominous portents, real and false alarms, and music stingers on the soundtrack.

Has so much potential and structure to become an excellent thriller yet it doesn't deliver.

It is entertaining in its ridiculousness, but that's at the expense of talented actors, and to me, that's not very funny.

All told, Ruby is responsible for more deaths than the villain. What a spunky little heroine.

Cheapened beyond belief by frying-pan-to-the-head foreshadowing, insultingly over-scripted metaphors and undignified gestures of exploitation.

Like a recurring nightmare, The Glass House is something that gets your motor racing briefly, but which you've seen all too often.

There's nothing in genredom quite so unhinged as the badly made psycho-thriller, and long before it's over, The Glass House collapses from wretched design and execution.

A thriller that does not mean to be comical but that inspires more howls of laughter than shivers of dread.

We're left with a cat-and-mouse game between girl and murderous faux-dad that's simply boilerplate.

...the screenplay...doesn't contain an ounce of subtlety or even intelligence.

the suspense genre has all but ceased to be suspenseful . . . it's business as usual, and the blades in the cookie cutter are getting dull.

With debut director Sackheim struggling to infuse the pedestrian plot with any sense of vigour, 'The Glass House' is rendered less memorable with every passing minute.

Is Terry reaching for her vagina or was he really trying to fasten her seatbelt?

Though Sobiesky earnestly conveys a shy but savvy teen dealing with her shattered life, this dramatic thriller quickly topples into bad camp.
