"A splendidly demented gumbo of Hitchcock thriller, American Gothic fairy tale and a contemporary kink all Park's own." -- Guy Lodge, Variety
"Fans who have followed the Korean auteur since 2003's 'Oldboy' will not be disappointed, but a high creep-out factor and top-drawer cast also should attract genre fans who've never heard of him." -- John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
