Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The best things this movie has going for it are the villains and the sense of dread. When waiting for things to kick off, the suspense builds rather effectively […] When it does pick up steam, the violence is grisly and visceral, not afraid to get gory but never crossing over the top.” Wicked Horror
