Reviews:

“Oy ve. Where shall I even begin describing this exercise in cheap gore, cheap T&A contributed by ladies who certainly look their parts and camcorder production values? Let’s just say I had more fun making the screen caps than I did actually watching the movie.” The Bloody Pit of Horror

“Good and bad are sticky concepts when you’re down at the bottom of the cinematic heap, as we are here. What it is, is a bloke with no money and a bit of a sense of humour just making something happen.” Mark Longden, International Syndicate of Cult Film Critics

“Farmer does Demon Queen again, but less dreamy, less weird, more broad and dumb and “market-friendly,” complete with desperately tasteless jokes and a hip soundtrack full of watery quasi-punk rock. Maybe a skosh better than the similar Night of the Living Babes (if only because Farmer does seem to want to take the horror elements seriously when they belatedly show up) but still wholly dismal and depressing.” Steve Carlson, Letterboxd.com

“The sound is terrible, one girl keeps looking at the camera, and the FX consist of blood and boobs.” Michael J. Weldon, The Psychotronic Video Guide

“The acting is atrocious, the premise is idiotic, the blood and gore effects are a joke, and the entire thing looks like it was filmed with someone’s uncle’s video camera that was ordinarily used to shoot home movies. It looks a lot like a really bad 80’s p*rno flick instead of a horror film and it is just painfully bad in general.” Todd Martin, Horror News
