TV Guide called the film "Overly chatty"; Cinema Retro found it "A quaint, cliché ridden drama," concluding more positively, "yes, of course it creaks a little, but if nothing else it’s guaranteed to hold your attention for its succinct 70-minute runtime"; and DVD Beaver saluted "A taut, complex whodunit with a brilliantly nerve-racking climax."
