Allmovie called it a "grim British drama," but approved of "An excellent all-character-actor cast includes Flora Robson and Andre Morrell as the grieving parents, Michael Denison as the brother and Mai Zetterling as the initial murder victim."; whereas TV Guide wrote, "Decent performances by some well-known British actors and actresses are wasted on this unbelievable story."
