” …it does boast some impressive cinematography courtesy of Michael A. Perry, and the small-town setting and desolate open plain backdrop is quite nice to look at if you’re a fan of isolation and scenery. The cast do a serviceable job as well, and there is some enjoyment to be had in knowing that they were all clearly having a good time making the movie.” Scream magazine
