Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a disturbing, hopeless, irredeemable series of images that will scar you if you wander into it unprepared."

‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times

‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Perhaps if I hadn't expected it to be so bad I might have approved of it less."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
