Deathtrap, like many intricate stage thrillers, reveals its artifice on the screen but remains crackling good fun. Bob Thomas. Deathtrap seems an unusually skillful and satisfying example of devious entertainment. It offers as much double-crossing amusement as one can reasonably expect from a theatrical murder mystery. Gary Arnold. The film is marvelous claptrap, a skillfully wrought -- indeed, over-wrought -- piece of preposterous escapist entertainment. Bruce McCabe. It wants to mislead us at every turn, confound all our expectations, and provide at least one moment when Unknown Artist - Tobe Hoopers Death Trap - Audio Trailer Disc (Flexi-disc) levitate from our seats and come down screaming.
It succeeds, more or less. Roger Ebert. Ira Levin's mystery thriller Deathtrap is beginning its fifth year Unknown Artist - Tobe Hoopers Death Trap - Audio Trailer Disc (Flexi-disc) Broadway -- a certified hit. The movie version, adapted by Jay Presson Allen, is more of a hit and miss. Larry Vitacco. Sidney Lumet's adaptation is flat, linear, and without the depth that this text required. It would be criminal to reveal how the plot unfolds, other than to say it's impressive dramatic origami, manipulated deftly by an ideal cast and one of Hollywood's all-time top directors.
Peter Canavese. Apesar do desfecho decepcionante, sobrevive graas s boas reviravoltas, direo intrigante de Lumet e s formidveis atuaes de Caine e Reeve.
Witty thriller, particularly of interest to writers. Sarah Chauncey. Deathtrap is a literate, swiftly paced and engrossing screen adaptation of Ira Levin's Broadway smash. Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat. Christopher Null.

There have been countless stories crediting Spielberg as a co-director on the project because of how hands-on he was as a producer, so much that the Directors Guild of America had to make an inquiry about Poltergeist to clear things up.
While Spielberg has acknowledged his creative involvement in the project after a story in The Los Angeles Times sparked the question of who was directing the movie, he ultimately wrote a letter apologizing to Tobe Hooper in The Hollywood Reporter :.
Through the screenplay you accepted a vision of this very intense movie from the start, and as the director, you delivered the goods. You performed responsibly and professionally throughout, and I wish you great success on your next project.
