Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cuenca's mixture of beauty and grotesquerie brings enough edginess to Carlos' murderous and loving ways."
‑ Jim Brunzell III, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"...a seemingly electrifying premise that's utilized to hopelessly uninvolving and consistently dull effect..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Antonio de la Torre is brilliant as a killer and eater of young women in Manuel Martin Cuenca's sumptuously lensed psychological drama."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"It keeps us at a remove that becomes telling of the filmmaker's reticence to explore whatever feelings of isolation and yearning may inform his main character's grisly compulsion."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
