It's one of those handful of movies you have to see to get your gay card... Here, you've got bigger than life actresses, fabulous bitchy dialogue that's like a big juicy steak both actresses are tearing apart with their bare teeth.Charles Busch, American actor and drag performer
A lurid melodrama of hate, revenge and murder, a high-class horror film, in the Hitchcock vein, with virtuoso performances from Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, and moments both searing and poignant.James Powers, Hollywood Reporter
Remains a masterclass in 'uglying up' and a relevant comment on the destructive nature of celebrity.Jane Crowther, Total Film
