      Julian P One reviewer mentions the stupidity of the adults who believe the girl's lies. That's most of us. We think ourselves defenders of the young . It makes us feel good defending the young....in this case a psychopath . Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review kevin f Cult classic in the stalker thriller dept. Alicia Silverstone does a great job playing a psychotic stalker that takes it five levels too high. Definitely some plot holes but I don't care it's entertaining. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review Steve D I just found it really uncomfortable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/12/23 Full Review Abigail M kinda just a pointless watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/01/23 Full Review B Rad Not much new in this movie but I liked it none the less. Worth a look IMO Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/14/23 Full Review Rick A I liked this movie. It is fast paced without a dull moment. The scenery is great, and I think the writing is purposeful. Every sentence is there for a reason. The camera work is good, with many scenes shot in low light, but effective. I think the acting is good, and Alicia Silverstone in her first performance was exceptional, conveying a wide range of emotions quite effectively. I read that in production the movie tried to get a balance of being scary and thrilling, while being somewhat campy at the same time. I think this polarity was achieved brilliantly. It has a few techincal faults, but delivers quite a crescendo. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Geoff Brown Times (UK) A Hollywood potboiler which probably should have gone straight to video. Apr 21, 2021 Full Review Wally Hammond Time Out Leaves much to be desired. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: 3/5 Dec 11, 2003 Full Review Joe Lipsett Anatomy of a Scream Podcast Network Elwes is at peak hotness while Silverstone's unhinged performance as Dorian is inspired. Like any good Erotic Thriller, suspension of disbelief is key (a carousel in the attic?!) but The Crush is plenty of fun. Rated: 3/5 Mar 3, 2023 Full Review Malcolm Johnson Hartford Courant As directed and written by Alan Shapiro, this proves a crushingly childish and silly attempt at a thriller. Jun 4, 2018 Full Review Dustin Putman TheBluFile.com An infectious little psychodrama, one with high replay value. Rated: 3/4 Jun 20, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
