      Angie Errigo Empire Magazine Estranging and frustrating. Nov 27, 2011 Full Review Variety Staff Variety A stylish melodrama about sex and violence among the British aristocracy, Diamond Skulls never quite delivers the punches it promises. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Time Out The controlled technique echoes the theme of domination, but combined with the largely unsympathetic characters, results in a film that affects emotion and remains curiously hollow. Jan 26, 2006 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Dark Obsession is an interesting film, but ultimately empty. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 26, 2023 Full Review TV Guide [It] attempts to make a serious social statement within the context of a mainstream entertainment. But the mix never gels, and it succeeds as neither. Rated: 2/4 Nov 27, 2011 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 24, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
