Ron Wertheimer New York Times While the special effects in the three-part ''Rose Red'' made the house seem a cavernous enigma, the two-hour ''Diary'' (with little in the way of visual effects, special or otherwise) makes the place feel about as interesting as a suburban colonial. Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Melanie McFarland Seattle Post-Intelligencer "The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer" managed to stun this critic by being substantially more dreadful that the original, and offensive to boot. Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Michael Speier Variety The project is an elegantly staged and crisp haunted house primer that could have easily popped up as an A&E production or, minus a few gimmicks, even on PBS. Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) "Diary" isn't really scary or even creepy. And what's the use of a horror movie that isn't horrifying? Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel Everything about The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer screams low rent. Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

steve d Slightly better than Rose Red but not by much. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved it. Can't believe all the bad reviews Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I found the movie to be a good introduction to the miniseries Rose Red. In many ways, I prefer it to the first part of the miniseries. I just wish I had watched it prior to Rose Red. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member As good as Rose Red was. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved it, great movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member YAWN! What a dreary, boring tele-movie. I had seen Rose Red at some point and it obviously didn't make a much better impression as I don't recall much about it but I'm fairly certain it was better than this. This isn't even remotely disturbing - its just really boring. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
