Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Admittedly, it doesn't seem like one that Friedkin put his heart and soul into, but it still has some of his touches, and it's too interesting to write off completely."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Absolutely hysterical. Unfortunately, it's supposed to be scary"

‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Friedkin here seems strangely determined to squander his talent; lots of wasted opportunities."
‑ Gregory Weinkauf, ▄berCinÚ
