“3-D COMES OF AGE! Adult and restrained treatment turns a simple, grim story idea with conviction, irony and chilling crescendo.”
- Howard H. Thompson, The New York Times (1953)

“Tight and involving essay in suspense…ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES MADE IN 3-D.”
– Time Out (London)

“Made better use of 3-D than any other film.”
