    Darkly funny and deeply twisted, 13 Sins grabs you from its startling opening sequence and doesn’t let go.

    Creepy enough to get the job done, but not sufficiently extreme to fulfill the initial setup.

    [Webber's] performance is crazy good, and so emotionally charged that viewers may be forgiving of a finale overloaded with silly twists.

    13 Sins is occasionally inventive but mostly uninvolving.

    The horror flick 13 Sins is passable enough when it comes to dialing up the suspense, but the “Saw” formula of a mysterious voice guiding our hero through a series of depravities has gone a bit stale.

    Daniel Stamm's film is solidly helmed, if expectedly over-reliant on unnecessarily grisly comeuppances that leave nothing to the imagination.

    This is one of those mind games that lean too heavily on the mindless to be thoroughly enjoyable, turning sadistic pleasure into harmless boredom.

    When the fly trapped in the spider's web is as clueless and selfish as the sap played by Mark Webber in 13 Sins, it's hard to muster much sympathy.

    This ultimately isn’t a film about human fallibility, but about high-concept grotesquerie for its own sake.

    Achieves a modest degree of tension and dark humor before tilting into gory overkill, while its diffuse central ideas — about materialism, the dangers of playing God and the latent human capacity for violence — never really take plausible shape.

    A "Saw" knockoff without the torture porn.

    13 Sins is brutal, mainstream terror. I watched it online and I not only was hooked all the way to the end, but also thinking of what a hell of an idea. Well done performances from all the actors and the there is likable characters too. Every film has its SINS, this movie just becomes a bit boring and repetitive an hour in and it is disappointing. However, you have to see 13 Sins, it is highly recommended! Full Review »

    A silly, dumb pile of garbage. The movie isn't clever enough and becomes even more unrealistic and corny as time goes by. It wasn't thrilling or scary. Full Review »
