Reviews:

“The saddest thing about it is that at its core is a potentially interesting story. Cops teaming up with criminals and regular folks against a common enemy – sound like Assault on Precinct 13 a bit? … Instead we get the umpteenth journey through the woods, without any of the class of the original or splatter-y fun of the sequel.” Bloody Disgusting

“There is toplessness (of a hilariously gratuitous variety) within two minutes of the film’s opening, and a legion of gory deaths to follow – but there is also, alas, little here that we have not seen before … Yet amid all its man-traps, macho posturing and monetary moralising, this is an overfamiliar exercise in by-numbers filmmaking that always seems merely to be coasting on auto-pilot.” Anton Bitel, Eye for Film

“While there’s some creativity in the methods of death, the filmmakers decide to overload their gags with CGI gore, a strategy that pisses me off as I see it used more frequently in low-budget horror films … If gore is where you hope to make your name, divert some cash into the practical props line item.” David Johnson, DVD Verdict

“It features a cast of actors who have a lot of episodes of The Bill on their CVs and has what appears to be a public park in Belgrade standing in for America. It’s dark. Presumably they thought the audience would be too drunk to notice. Its really, really dreadful.” Max Renn Blog
