Teaching Mrs. Tingle reveals Williamson not only to be as accomplished a director as he is a writer but also his willingness to move beyond horror to psychological suspense.

Kevin Williamson's revenge fantasy rests upon the reasonable assumption that everyone has entertained homicidal fantasies about some especially obnoxious teacher.

It's Kevin's chance to exercise his Hitchcock muscles and advance from the irony-laced fright of Scream to something really terrifying: Helen Mirren's horrifying pedal extremities!

Contains enough amusing moments and unpredictable twists for the film to score with teen audiences.

As a routinely cruel, often vicious, miserably unhappy teacher, Mirren offers a complex, brilliantly disciplined performance!

Helen Mirren's acting stands out in this mean-spirited dark comedy like an original Picasso in a paint-by-numbers art show.

Here you have a movie in which three teenagers go to a teacher's house and take her hostage. Either you go all the way with that premise, or you don't go there at all.
