Christmas Eve: A trio of college co-ed students, Holly, Cali and Mel, break into a seemingly empty mansion to have their own private party. However, the young women are soon faced with dire choices after they unexpectedly encounter the property’s groundskeeper…
“The constant sense of dread and horror tucked away into the Christmas season is fantastic, too. I’d love to say more but it’s hard to talk about what makes this movie so great without spoiling it. But what Bodyboils down to is a very confined thriller with a cold, claustrophobic atmosphere and a Hitchcockian pulse.” Rhino’s Horror
“Body is a well-made thriller for what it is, which, as it turns out, isn’t much. It’s one of those movies that comes in, does its job and then gets out without padding itself with needless character development and buildup. The brisk runtime keeps things moving, and it doesn’t overstay its welcome. However, there’s just not that much going on here.” Film Pulse
“There are no real scares in the film, the shocks come the actions of the girls, just as you think they can’t dig themselves in any deeper, of they go and do just that. Body is an excellent slab of horror thriller, that uses it relatively short running to great effect.” Ginger Nuts of Horror
