Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Atmosfera sufocante e um elenco grandioso."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena

‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile

‑ Ian Berriman, SFX Magazine
"Dead people who throw cat birthday parties. Gotta love it!"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
"way too predictable"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"One of the best horror films of the 70's. An intriguing story and disturbing imagery make this one stick out in the psyche."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
