“..the film spins out of control so messily that no one in the audience will be crying "bravo" or "encore"..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..starts out as a funny musical mashup - "Glee" meets "Friday the 13th" - but winds up indulging slasher-flick cliches instead of spoofing them..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..nothing else in Stage Fright, a horror-musical hybrid that plays like a sleepy, off-brand Troma movie, is as good as Meat Loaf..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
Review rate : B

“..it's half Friday the 13th, half Phantom of the Paradise, and just cheesy enough to work..”

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
