May 20, 2003
An odd, but mostly effective mix of melodrama, fantasy and voice-over.
May 20, 2003
Stylish and eerily compelling before it overplays its campy excesses, Heavenly Creatures does have a feverish intensity to recommend it.

Beautifully, horribly passionate.
December 8, 2002
One of the most genuinely disturbing films I have ever seen.

A beautiful, haunting masterpiece from Peter Jackson, and proof that The Lord of the Rings isn't the only rabbit in his hat.

Reveals how pernicious fantasy can become when it is based on a deep-seated hatred of the world.

The single best film in Jackson's filmography, and a compliment to New Zealand cinema.

Taut, clever, and fronted with two excellent performances, this is a clever choice for Jackson's first step into mainstream filmmaking.

1994 spellbinder.

17-year-old Kate Winslet made her film debut in this compelling blend of true crime and dark fantasy...

The film's structure demands rational and beautiful segues from the real world into fantasia, a ballet of sensibilities that Jackson pulls off without a misstep.

The acting by Winslet and Lynskey is superb.

An unforgettable experience.
