    An engrossing examination of the elemental forces that define human nature.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Works as Gothic melodrama because it understands the genre so well.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    This isn't afraid to be a horror movie.

    Empire Full Review
  • Janet Maslin

    A gloomy film with a story whose outcome... is an especially foregone conclusion.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    Too bad the overreaching script has to go after effects recalling "Alien," but as a stylistic exercise this still has its chills.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Stack

    The film is too mannered, too stuffy. Even Malkovich's interesting performance won't let it break free of a formal style and cloyingly creepy tone that becomes precious while trying to be merely claustrophobic.

  • Staff (Not Credited)

    Relentlessly gray and paralyzed by narrative inertia, it collapses under the weight of its stars.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    There is nothing to be embarrassed about here, neither is there much to relish, for Mary Reilly has more of the sheen of art than its essence.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Godfrey Cheshire

    [A] muddled mix of melodrama and horror.

    Variety Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The film's chief novelty turns out to be its drab ''literary'' approach to horror.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A gothic little slip of a film, beautiful to behold but with less substance than the shadowy tendrils of fog that blanket nearly every scene.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Walter Addiego

    With the exception of a couple of inspired moments, Mary Reilly is merely a curious variation of an often-told story.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Philippe Rousselot's carefully shaded cinematography looks great, but the screenplay is pretentious and there's little to applaud in the top-heavy acting by John Malkovich and Julia Roberts.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    Adapted from Valerie Martin's psychosexual novel, this maudlin film transforms the legend of Jekyll and Hyde into a talky romantic love triangle. [23 Feb 1996]
