I've always liked Kelly McGillis (Witness and Top Gun come to mind), so I had to watch this movie. The House on Carroll Street' is a slow-paced mystery, where the most excitement is Kelly and the bad guy crawling along the wall 10 stories up in Grand Central station. It is pretty bad if the 1950's United States of America "officially" accepted Nazis as immigrants in order for them to work on developing weapons.

This is an awesome movie that I never heard about when it was released in 1988, due to being out of the country and movie watching was very limited. Kelly McGills who was my heartthrob in Witness, and who played in Top Gun, played the role of Emily Crane in this later movie, and she was excellent and convincing. On the other hand Jeff Daniels its hard to place him anywhere else then Dumb & Dumber. This movie is time set right after WWII and a high political official is helping smuggle Nazi war criminals into the United States and Emily discovers this and with the help of a Stray FBI officer she tries to put an end to it. This was a very enjoyable film. 4 1/2 stars.

Hitchcock-style thriller with Kelly McGillis and her boobies. Decent, but ultimately forgettable.

A passable movie that has not aged well.

Preposterous, contrived story involving preposterous, contrived characters with preposterous, contrived motivations that was quite nicely shot and directed.

An ok movie at the time...

Builds suspense from the beginning but then becomes a rather corny farce. Although, it's very well made and easy to appreciate. It's certainly a very good movie after all.

A nice little homage to the work of Alfred Hitchcock with a wonderful atmosphere, slick direction, solid performances, and even a final elaborate suspense sequence at a historical monument (here, it's Grand Central Station). Despite having these qualities, the script makes the picture suffer as it lapses into long moments of uninteresting exposition, causing the entire film to move at a snail's pace. In addition, the suspense sequences, though well-executed, never generate the proper amount of suspense. Still, its an entertaining film and those who love Hitchcock will enjoy all the references to the master.

Another good spy film. For those of us who love espionage there are too few good ones around

Mandy Patinkin is a badass in this
