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

” …writer/director Justin Head doesn’t blow his wad too early, nicely pacing out the hints at the horrors to come while giving us the necessary exposition and back-stories for everyone, so that when the shit hits the fan around the halfway point, you will likely care about a few of the people.” Horror Movie a Day
