Minneapolis Star Tribune

The film's only point appears to be lurid delight in topping one atrocity with another.

In the end, the pace of the film is just too sluggish to maintain our interest and, at under two hours, it feels longer.

Cinema Crazed

A clunky and ugly little film that I was more than happy to forget.

Washington Post

The tale quickly degenerates from a dramatically promising clash of personalities under pressure to a gratuitous display of rape, murder, torture, dismemberment, madness, ugly misogyny, naked racism and yelling.

Delivers everything that horror fans might want from a post-apocalyptic thriller - rape, self-immolation, youngster harvesting, throat-slitting, more rape - everything, that is, except a reason to care.

A genuinely disturbing descent into madness. You just happen to have seen it all before.

Globe and Mail

It's a rare movie where the most likable character onscreen, and the feel-good hero of the damnable show, is none other than the hardy cockroach.

New York Post

The only possible relief from director Xavier Gens' abusively bleak survivalist scenario is how implausible it is.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

A genre film that's both a little too long and a little too brutal for mainstream tastes ... a minor cult movie, beloved by a few discriminating connoisseurs of small-scale apocalyptic horror and pretty much ignored by the rest of us.
