Critic Reviews of "Raising Cain"Q Network Film DeskSeptember 12, 2016
works superbly in its isolated setpieces, even as the film as a whole doesn't quite hang togetherTheFrightFile.comAugust 25, 2016
From first scene to the unforgettable final sting, "Raising Cain" is hypnotic in its richly devised spell, starkly realistic fears invaded by haunting spurts of dream logic.Reel Film ReviewsMay 10, 2016
...one of the most satisfying entries within De Palma's decidedly erratic body of work.BrianOrndorf.comAugust 06, 2012
In a world where Redacted exists, Raising Cain isn't De Palma's least effective picture, but it's damn near close, purposely unreasonable and shockingly leaden all the way.Slant MagazineAugust 19, 2006
Rather than clarifying, De Palma's technique with Raising Cain effectively obliterates the audience's bearings.Fantastica DailyJanuary 24, 2006
A respectable if overly campy De Palma thriller. Like the director's Body Double, this plays better the second time you watch it.MovieholeOctober 29, 2005
Creepy and effectiveJuicy CerebellumJuly 19, 2005
Weak thriller. Lost potential. Lithgow is good.Lawrence Journal-WorldNovember 26, 2003
