Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's little originality but a decent amount of suspense, a great deal of blood and some promise."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Great individual scenes do not quite add up to a great film."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"The result is gory and stark, but no Blood Simple."
‑ Rosie Fletcher, Total Film
"Packed with references to classic horror thrillers, this Australian film is a gimmicky freak-out that keeps our pulses racing even if it never really gets under the skin."
‑ Rich Cline,
"It's one thing to pay homage to your favourite filmmakers; it's another to rip them off. If there's a fine line between the two, China has stepped well and truly over it."
‑ Miles Fielder, The List
"A squeaky door steals the show."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Guardian
"Though minimalist to a fault, there's plenty of tension to keep this grisly Aussie thriller bounding along."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
