Critic Reviews for Never Talk to Strangers

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6)

Reasonably entertaining but largely uninspired.

Top Critic

An adequate psychological thriller on a topical theme -- Repressed Memory Syndrome -- but with little special quality, few frills or thrills, and a relaxed, almost languid exposition.

It's an easy-to-watch movie that will be even easier on video, where it should turn up any minute.

Top Critic

Here's a sure method to guess whodunnit in bad mystery thrillers: pick the suspect most likely to shock the audience and you have the killer.

It's mysterious and sexy enough to keep tension alive until, too bad, the whole thing collapses with a twist ending that is nearly laughable.

Top Critic

[Hall] can't triumph over the problems in the script, or tie up all the loose ends, but his brisk, competent approach does minimize the effects of these flaws.

Audience Reviews for Never Talk to Strangers


The story and the acting was good enough, but the outfits were scary. Of course, in the 90's when this movie was made everything would have been fine.

I mean it was good enough for a movie to watch on TV in the middle of the night. I did get fooled by the ending, no matter how implausible it was. I kept thinking I had it figured out but then thinking that was too obvious so I'd think something else but I never did get it right.

Never Talk to Strangers, starring Rebecca De Mornay and Antonio Banderas is a good thriller of one man's deadly obession.
