Critic Reviews for Distorted

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Ricci is convincingly terrified in a film that's never scary enough to justify her performance.

Thanks to Ricci's excellent performance as Lauren and Cusack's balanced supporting role, Disjointed will certainly find favour with fans of classic Canadian cult offerings.

January 29, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

[Christina] Ricci is impressive, however, working hard with what she's got to create a character we can believe in even when what's happening to and around her stretches credulity.

January 24, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A frustratingly terrible paranoia thriller, Distorted manages to waste a potentially intriguing premise and the star power of Christina Ricci and John Cusack.

January 19, 2019 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Distorted leaves viewers with a disjointed, unoriginal story, a made-for-TV feel, and underwhelming thrills, with the only saving graces being the presence of Ricci and Cusack.

"Distorted" plays one too many tricks, and its casting is abysmal.

Audience Reviews for Distorted


The idea is that through state-of-the-art invasive mind control we can be made to perform acts against our will. Not a bad starting point, but the follow-through is simply all smoke and no fire. Blah.
