Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you're a connoisseur of this type of gory head-banging, you should be impressed."

"Every so often a film comes along that just breaks your heart... and then there are films like this one that hit you in the head like an aluminum baseball bat."
‑ Ron Wells, Film Threat
