Movie Reviews

“Its horror absolutely worked on me (…) If it does its job right (and it still does, on me at least) you’re engrossed enough in the story that a dated effect doesn’t matter” Luke Y. Thompson: Forbes

“The film is ferociously kinetic and full of visual surprises (…) There are lots of clever turns on standard horror movie formulas” Pat Graham: Chicago Reader 

“Short on characterisation and plot but strong on atmospheric horror and visual churns, this movie blends comic fantasy (…) with recent genre gems like ‘Carrie’ and ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ to impressive effect.” Steve Grant: Time Out
