Grant, p. 448: “An early forensics thriller… The movie holds the attention less through any narrative drive than by the fascination of the slow scientific unraveling of the truth.”

Silver and Ward, p. 194: “[Director of photography John] Alton was thoroughly familiar with a photographic style that could enhance the detailed scientific investigation and become the bizarre background for a crime as illustrated by the reconstruction of an adult skeleton, dredging a swamp for a car, and sifting beach sand to discover and reconstruct the skeleton of a fetus.”
