September 15, 2012
The Moth Diaries is an entirely bloodless vampire tale that takes itself way too seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
September 15, 2012
"The Moth Diaries" just ends up feeling like a desperate attempt to cash in on the vampire craze created by "Twilight."
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
April 20, 2012
The Moth Diaries serves up a great helping of symbolism and interesting suggestions in what could have been an exceptional story, but that is about as far as it goes.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.1/10

If you think Twilight moves at a plodding pace and makes you wish for a death that will not come, wait till you see this.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 26, 2012
American Psycho director Mary Harron's latest is unfortunately a middling J-horror outing.

I'd give this moth-eaten nonsense a miss.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 13, 2012
This is one vampire film whose sexless, generic ending betrays a promise of revisionist complexity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 24, 2013
A redundant teen-horror romp which, in the space of its slender running time, actually begins to make you pine for the return of Bella and Edward.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Sleeping Pill: The Movie
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 19, 2012
The Moth Diaries fails to frighten, titillate or otherwise engage the imagination.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 17, 2012
Lesbian desires, fears of mortality, and adolescent jealousies are all handled as bluntly as the unintentionally corny black-and-white flashbacks and gauzy dream sequences.
April 24, 2012
Sex, blood, and death may be the givens of any Dracula-inspired fright film. The Moth Diaries skimps on all three.
| Original Score: 2/5
April 19, 2012
Harron can do little with this bloodless drama, a shadow of such quiet vampire treats as "Let the Right One In" and "The Addiction."
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 21, 2012
It's a missed opportunity for Harron, who can't figure out a game plan for the source material's mysteries, leaving the picture to spin helplessly, wasting enticing genre ingredients.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
April 30, 2012
The problem with a movie this unimaginative and amorphous that tries to be ambiguous is that we're not sure how to take anything it shows us. Ambiguity becomes meaningless game-playing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 24, 2013
The lacklustre script is so determined to spell out thoughts and emotions that it becomes insulting.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 3, 2013
Vamps-fans won't find much to gnaw on here.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 4, 2012
Ostensibly made as an angst-filled teen horror movie in the vein of Twilight, it doesn't really have an idea of its own identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 16, 2012
Those incredibly volatile days when a teenage girl comes to terms with her own family history, her changing friendships, her sexuality, and more make for interesting fiction but often come apart on their way to the big screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/5.0
May 22, 2013
There's no mystery, suspense or intrigue. Worst of all, there are no real scares - though that may be due to the Young Adult market it's trying to tap into.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
