« Watching it in this version is a treat. » (The Sunday Times)
« Whichever side of the modern 3D debate you come down on, it's fascinating to watch Hitchcock take an early stab at it. » (Total Film)
« Hitchcock's use of 3D shows that he made use of the technique to enhance the script, emotional impact of the action and even the very atmospheric single setting. » (Mature Times)
« In a blockbuster-saturated summer, this sharp 3D restoration is a cool refresher for audiences weary of seeing the technology applied to mutants and doomsday scenarios. » (Time Out)
« A new digital restoration of one of the most significant films of the 1950s 3D craze. Scanned from the original, dual-system camera negative, this new version should afford the most accurate viewing of the 3D version in decades. » (Dave Kehr)
« The script was based on a straightforward stage play of the same name, but Hitchcock opened up the action and shot his legendary marriage and murder thriller in 3D, using the stereoscopic Natural Vision method. In order to further enhance the 3D effect, the 'master of suspense' had special trenches built into the floor of the sets, so a camera could be placed at a very low angle shooting upward, giving audiences the illusion of being in the middle of the action in front row seats. The digital 3D-projection has been processed by Warner Bros. » (Berlinale 2013)
