Reviews:

“Despite some unintentional laughs here and there, especially the opening asylum scenes full of cliched nuttish behavior, it’s mostly just dull, inept and confusing. The acting’s pretty awful, the story’s all over the place and it’s mostly just talk and very, very tame.” The Bloody Pit of Horror

“Another Renee Harmon mashup job, part SOV and partly cribbed from Frozen Scream. A crummy world of ugly interiors, stilted acting, baffling flashbacks (or are they hallucinations?), harsh key lights slicing through indecipherable night scenes, and corrupt doctors who casually toss around the word ‘retard’.” Matt Lynch

“Utterly incomprehensible and amateurish piece of crap with enough weirdness to satisfy fans of low-budget trash.” Humanoid of Flesh
