Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film relies heavily on dramatic music for its thrills and some of the effects are a bit cheesy, but it appears to be so well meant that these flaws are easily forgiven."
‑ Ray Bennett, Hollywood Reporter
"Su Chao-Bin does some remarkable things by keeping his little ghost in plain sight; he creates the kind of dead-on spectral chills that all the silly jump-scares in the world can't quite equal."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Over-complicated script, which tries to mix science, ghost cliches and protags' personal problems in a single pot, starts OK but gradually runs out of steam after the first 40 minutes."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Depois de prender a atenção do público durante sua metade inicial graças a idéias e momentos interessantes, o roteiro se perde sem maiores avisos, transformando-se em uma bagunça capaz de levar até mesmo o mais paciente dos espectadores à loucura."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"isn't quite the terrorfest that it's billed as, but it will hold your interest. Just don't expect to scream."
‑ Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
