” …Strange Rituals might not exactly be reinventing genre cinema … but horror fans will love it for what it is, a slim and swift zombie story without big pretentions, instead concentrating on delivering a tense story arc with shocks and gore in all the right places, and believable and flawed but likeable characters to carry the story.” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash
“While restrained in the gore department, the movie’s special makeup effects (headed by Stephanie Hancock) are a highlight. There are more than a few grotesque faces that standout out among an impressive horde of zombie extras. The movie’s synth soundtrack by Dakarius is well suited to the action…” Pycal
