“The directors know how to work within their extremely small budget to deliver a movie that feels good, moves fast, and even has the chance to turn the stomach a little with the makeup effects they use. It’s not a great film, nor is it particularly original, but it is bloody, occasionally creepy…” Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict


“When it comes to the horror genre it is hard to make an interesting or at least put inventive enough spin on subject matter that has been exploited for all it is worth. But then there are always rules to the exception and in the case of Wither this is such a film. It is a film that far exceeds the sum of its parts with its tremendous amount of atmosphere and ample amount of gore.” Michael den Boer, 10k Bullets
