The atmospheric psychological thriller weaves a compelling web thanks to dense, stylized direction by Nick Willing and a smartly assembled cast.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

An occasionally engaging but more often gruesome British thriller.

Rob Vaux
Flipside Movie Emporium

Its solid horror pedigree is all the more enjoyable because it comes as such a surprise -- forgotten in a dusty corner and just waiting for the right fan to find it.

... one of the best thrillers I've seen probably since The Ring.

Megan Lehmann
New York Post

If you can overlook its TV-episode look, occasional lapses in logic and detours into lurid overkill, this old-school psychological thriller, which marries a tracking-the- serial-killer narrative with occult themes, is a creepy diversion.

...a surprisingly effective little thriller...

On their way to confront ancient evil, Strother and Losey keep tripping over timeworn cliches.

Jack Mathews
New York Daily News

May be the worst-directed movie exported by England in this young century.

Christopher Null

Visnjic proves he can conceivably carry a movie if given a chance. But he still needs to find one worth his time.

Unremarkable occult thriller except this one employs a visionary hypnotist as part of the story. Passable, nothing more gripping than that.
