"The movie has good special effects..."--Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It bristles with interesting ideas - about friendship and freakishness, honesty and anger - and intriguing characters, all of which may blossom in later episodes."--A.O. Scott, New York Times
"It's creepy but tinged with sarcasm and infused with silly fun."--USA Today
