Critic Reviews for Disturbing Behavior

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (9)

Lots of shots are held for upwards of a minute, too. I know that's not much, but if you're ambitious enough to gain sustenance from something other than nice belly-buttons, you take what you can get.

Unlike Scream 2, which kids the horror cliches, Disturbing Behavior pretends they still hold power. But the movie is light on shocks and not ever scary.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Far from perfect, but in its own flawed way it is perfect to me, entering my life the summer before my senior year in high school and making an impact on me that has increased, rather than lessened, in the nearly two decades since it was made.

March 8, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As relatively low-budget and quickly made teen shockers go, it's not too hard to take.

February 2, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Surely, it's a definite solid thriller with very good performances, it just could be so much more with a little polish on the screenplay.

Cool kids go crazy -- why don't the nerds ever rise up?

Audience Reviews for Disturbing Behavior

Nothing more than a guilty pleasure. Plus James Marsden was so hot at 22.

One of the many teen horror movies to come out after the popularity of Scream. It was ok but nothing memorable.

This is a cool teen thriller. Suprised it's not more well know as I only saw it through a recommendation. It's good fun if predictable. Very similar to The Faculty and with a strong cast.
