12/12/12 is ridiculously bad. Almost so bad it’s good. The film actually has some silly camp value. The “killer demon baby” is the worst looking thing I may have ever seen. It literally kills people by having them hold it against their necks. Laughable […] If you are in the mood to punish yourself, or really drunk and need a laugh, then you should fire up 12/12/12.” Mister Joshua, DreadWorld

“The film works on a very base level in that it creates a legitimate sense of unease and creepiness, but otherwise fails to muster up anything of value. Maybe that’s enough, maybe it isn’t, but audiences looking for the truly odd might want to give this one a watch. All others are advised to stay away unless demonic babies sound like a good idea.” Martin Liebman, Blu-ray.com

” …strange editing cuts and odd plot lines, tissue paper thin structure eventually dooms the entire production, rather than a straightforward narrative, it slowly dissolves into random killings. While the special effects work, basic in design and thankful not overwhelming CGI, the characters all go through the motions, never truly believable, no strong connections to Revelations or the parent’s religion.” Baron Craze, The Horror Syndicate

“It substitutes obscenity for dialogue, gore for story, and could have been a tighter story if 30 minutes were lopped off. Though it tries to be creepy and scary, even while sitting alone and in the dark, this film was barely able to illicit an evil grin.” Mike Thomas, Matchflick
