Intermittently fun and occasionally witty, with just the right touch of self-awareness.

The saving grace is the obvious awareness of the familiar tropes, coupled with a clear effort to use them in clever, surprising ways.

...succeeds absolutely at what it aspires to ... it's an amusing little "midnight movie" built mostly out of off-the-rack elements.

Rough around the edges, but it is also frequently funny in its adherence to clichés and does boast an energetic tone.

A solid, whirlwind of a horror movie, with more twists and turns than a hula hoop competition.

All impenetrably dark nighttime shots, politely telegraphed shocks and limp, transparent misogyny masquerading as genre-savvy hijinks.

Bruce Feld
Film Journal International

The plot is derivative, the dialogue cumbersome and cliché-ridden.

Such a B movie. It was trying to be scary, but the acting was so cheesy, and the story was bit lame, at least until the end. It's worth a watch for the… More
