"Bloody, bone-chilling fun.  Steven Rae, Philadelphia Inquirer

Editor's Note
Based on a Stephen King novella, the psychological thriller SECRET WINDOW is reminiscent of an Alfred Hitchcock film. Eccentric author Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp) finds his life spiraling out of control. With a drinking problem and a cigarette habit he can't shake, Mort can barely function when his wife (Maria Bello) leaves him and he abandons his work. In the midst of his anguish, a deranged man, John Shooter, (John Turturro) appears at Mort's New York cabin, claiming that Mort has plagiarized one of his stories. As his wife pushes Mort to finalize their divorce and Shooter systematically destroys his life, he struggles to restore order to an increasingly insane situation.

Playing off of Turturro who is superb as the crazed, Gothic Shooter, Johnny Depp shines in his role with a quirky, brilliant performance. The mannerisms he brings to Mort, such as a problem with a clenched jaw, makes the author's descent into madness compelling and believable. With an emphasis on character study over special effects, the chills provided by this film rely on skilled acting and evoke thrillers of earlier generations like PSYCHO and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN, including a shocking twist of an ending.

A potent psychological thriller bolstered by strong performances and an offbeat sense of humor. What - Claudia Puig

Christian Science Monitor 8 of 10
Depp gives a smart, subtle performance, and Turturro is terrific as a foe who's both exactly what he - David Sterrit

The story is more entertaining as it rolls along than it is when it gets to the finish line. But at - Roger Ebert
