Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If nothing else, all the sleaze gets your attention in this neglected cult film and keeps you interested even if it repels you."

‑ Sean Axmaker, St@tic Multimedia
"Not a classic, but an unjustly forgotten oldie from the golden age of violent exploitation ..."

‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
