      Audience Member Julia Stiles was terrific in this strange movie about incest and murder. There was a interesting plot twist at the end but the majority of the movie was poor. Particulary weak was the father played by William H. Moses, he was very unconvincing and some of the side characters and the music was awful , didn't fit with the movie. All to odd. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Lurid and dumb. It's easy to see why this languished unreleased for years. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member This is Julia Stiles movie it is like this "10 thing's I Hate about you" Two me "WICKED" is that Movie for me...Do you see where I'm trying to go with this? I HATE (Romance & Kiddy) Movies. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Easily one of the most predictable thriller films, but Julia Stiles did a good job playing the troubled teenager with Elektra complex. Wicked is a combination of Stepford wives with Poison Ivy. The set design was pretty great though, it did a good job showing the supposedly perfect family with a touch of campiness. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member It was okay. Just... okay. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Kind of dumb but Stiles is a pretty good pyscho.

      David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a seriously tedious suburban thriller that wastes the talents of its admittedly impressive cast... Rated: 1.5/4 Jun 16, 2011 Full Review Betsy Bozdech DVDJournal.com A schizophrenic flick that should be strait-jacketed and locked away in solitary where it can't do anyone any harm. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 21, 2006 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 3, 2005 Full Review Wesley Lovell Apollo Guide It may not be the most glossy of films, but at least it tries to meet its audience's expectations. Rated: 68/100 Sep 28, 2001 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com Quickly turns from lukewarm thriller to tepid Hallmark drama. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 29, 2001 Full Review Read all reviews
