  1. Every shot seems measured for maximum effect, and when the pace suddenly quickens in a late action sequence on a deserted subway train, it results in a moment of pure Hitchcockian panic that reverberates like thunder in the fretful, melancholy air.
  2. 80
    You can see the strenuously grand conclusion of Alex Winter's clammy psychological thriller, Fever, coming a mile off, but the director's impeccably chic expressionism and Henry Thomas's persuasive, dread-soaked performance make the wait a painless one.
  3. 70
    Excellent performances.
  4. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    The only surprise here is how a film with so much promise could ultimately settle for so little.
  5. This offbeat drama has more atmosphere than logic, but a few sequences are strikingly well acted and filmed.
  6. 50
    An interesting - but very slow paced - thriller.
