Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Intermittently fun and occasionally witty, with just the right touch of self-awareness."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"The saving grace is the obvious awareness of the familiar tropes, coupled with a clear effort to use them in clever, surprising ways."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"...succeeds absolutely at what it aspires to ... it's an amusing little "midnight movie" built mostly out of off-the-rack elements."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"If there were a 99 Cents Store for movies, cheapo pic -- designed more for lonely male geeks in their teens and above than the date crowd -- would fit nicely on the shelves."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Rough around the edges, but it is also frequently funny in its adherence to clichés and does boast an energetic tone."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"A solid, whirlwind of a horror movie, with more twists and turns than a hula hoop competition."
‑ Amanda Reyes, Film Threat
"All impenetrably dark nighttime shots, politely telegraphed shocks and limp, transparent misogyny masquerading as genre-savvy hijinks."
‑ Adam Nayman, L.A. Weekly
"The plot is derivative, the dialogue cumbersome and cliché-ridden."
‑ Bruce Feld, Film Journal International
