“It would be unfair to single out any performance in particular as amateurish, since the acting across the board is uniformly terrible. The wooden line delivery and expressionless faces might be amusing if it were not heartbreaking to think some of these young greenhorns might believe they have promising futures as professional thespians.” Culture Crypt

“The film is very light on scares and gore, no surprise considering the age rating (UK – 15) but it does have occasional moments that momentarily chill such as the theatre performance that sees the audience turning to look at Fawn. Effective but like much of this film it chooses to drag it out rather than keeping it short and sharp.” Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

“I am more generous towards independent cinema, but it was very hard for me to find good words for this movie – feeling disappointed. There is nothing worth mentioning because the acting, sound effects, set, cinematography and everything about the movie was horrible.” Hell Horror

“Many red-markers will not agree with me on this one but some of the actors, especially Eva Kwok and the director himself, seem quite natural on screen for the most part. However, the direction and technical work have, sadly, been unripe.” Leaky Loonage


On 26 June 2017, 4Digital Media released the film on DVD in the UK on a triple-bill with The Amityville Asylum and The Amityville Terror.

The film was previously released in the UK on 13th April 2015 and in the US on DVD by 4 Digital Media on June 23, 2015.
