Critic Reviews for The Night Stalker

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5)

  • Neither the movie nor its heroine ever confuse understanding his past with excusing what he became.

  • It's Phillips' brooding intensity that draws you into the film, and will have you locking your back windows when it's over.

    Jun 10, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's the story of Richard Ramirez, who was branded The Night Stalker during his 14 month reign of terror... but it's just as much about how his actions reverberated through the culture of Southern California.

    Sep 19, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Though Phillips' triumphant performance makes The Night Stalker worth watching, it barely scratches the surface of Richard Ramirez's infectious evil.

    Dec 31, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Writer/director Megan Griffiths successfully captures the burbling hysteria of mid-'80s California, when every open window and slow-moving car carried a horrific potential energy.
