Reviews:

“In the end, Replicas works through to its climax because of the investment we’ve made in the characters during the lengthy setup. By giving us enough time to get to know both the victims and the villains before they’re literally at each other’s throats, Regimbal, his writers and cast overcome the more generic tropes of their material to deliver a tense experience punctuated by a few moments of genuine shock.”  Fangoria

“Part of the success of the movie is down to the direction and script, of course, but as well as those there is also a great cast here. Joshua Close and Selma Blair, as Mark and Mary, are both superb, but it is James D’Arcy as Booby who steals the show for me. His character is edgy and unpredictable, and even his most innocent actions have an uncomfortable feel to them.” The Lair of Filth
