“Beyond the faulty setup, logic, and world-building (which is forced and insubstantial), faults in The Mad Hatter‘s writing go on; the dialogue is poor and tasteless, the characters aren’t fleshed-out people (plus have next to nothing in the personality department), scares are the same dried-up variations on repeat, and the twist ending is completely predictable.” Flickering Myth

 

“Thankfully, The Mad Hatter is only 90 minutes long, but it’s 90 minutes of the most offensively derivative, unoriginal “horror” movie beats in existence. Auditing a decade of personal tax filings is a scarier proposition than Mad Hatter, but it would likely be a hundred times more fun as well.” Sarah Conner
