Critic Reviews for Still of the Night

All Critics (8)

[A] spare, superbly tingling psychological thriller.

February 26, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite the great performances, this thriller ends up becoming a cliché when it fails to propose authentic novelties. [Full Review in Spanish]

August 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Slavishly imitative of all those B-film noir clichés.

January 13, 2007 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Still of the Night is a sophisticated murder mystery drama.

February 4, 2004 | Full Review…

Apesar do roteiro estúpido e absurdo, o filme tem boa edição, conseguindo criar suspense em algumas seqüências. Incrível que tenha sido dirigido por Benton depois de Kramer Vs. Kramer.

Audience Reviews for Still of the Night

A so-so thriller, it's pretty predictable and all, and the ending is confusing.

Someone watched a whole lot of Hitchcock before they made this.
