  • Joseph Jon Lanthier

    With bubbles of nascent arousal frothing at the film's feminine surface, Moth Diaries' commercial potential is likely to hinge on whether or not audiences can stand to be confronted with the confusion they felt as adolescents.

    It offers glancing pleasures of the atmospheric kind – the impact is the equivalent of a filmy cobweb brushing against your cheek. It tickles more than it bites.

  • Andrew Schenker

    This is one vampire film whose sexless, generic ending betrays a promise of revisionist complexity.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Roiling with jealousy, suicide and latent lesbian urges, The Moth Diaries dances on the border between hallucination and reality without fully committing to either. Yet the film's narrative frailties are offset by impeccable performances and a consistently eerie tone, helped along by a location as forbidding as the "Overlook."

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Her (Harron) torpid adaptation of Rachel Klein's novel about female sexual desire, jealousy, death wishes, and vampires at a girls' boarding school defeats Harron's talent for exploring darkness on the edge of kinkiness.

  • Richard Corliss

    All three give performances that would suit a better movie than this pallid shocker with little heart and no bite.

    Time Full Review
  • Neil Young

    Suspenseless, uninvolving and underdeveloped, it wastes the talents of an almost entirely distaff cast that deserves much stronger material.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The body count runs high at Brangwyn boarding school, but tension, surprise and viewer interest are the real casualties in The Moth Diaries.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Writer-director Mary Harron, a supremely intelligent adaptor who did wonders with the screen version of Bret Easton Ellis' "American Psycho," simply doesn't have the chops to give this story the florid kick it needs.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    There's no surer way to murder horror than to literalize it, a mistake incessantly made by The Moth Diaries.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Way too serious for its own good. The best vampire movies are some combination of sexy, scary or campy. This one is 100 percent earnest, and the hazy mysteries taken from Rachel Klein's book aren't strong enough to keep the audience engaged.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Director Mary Harron ("American Psycho") can do little with this bloodless drama.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Fear

    They've taken an intriguing story about female neuroses with gothic overtones and turned it into a graceless, butt-ugly attempt at Twilight-lite.
