Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While occasionally unpleasant, the film never crosses the line from bearably chilling to unbearably gruesome, keeping its characters credible and its events explicable."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"A masterful piece of independent filmmaking..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"More concerned with the novelty of its three-act, "three-perspective" structure than with how that structure actually functions."
‑ Calum Marsh, Slant Magazine
"The resolution of its conflicting truths proves so bizarre and idiotically off-the-wall that it mitigates all that precedes it."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"This methodical thriller becomes doubly troubling by ensuring that all of its pieces, in the final appraisal, don't fit together."
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"Strong performances and a Hitchcock-trained eye build unnerving tension into its depiction of the intimate stress of caring for an invalid and the ways people might or might not crack under it."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"an unflinching, character-driven drama"
‑ Norm Schrager,
