Reviews:

“There is no clear delineation between what is reality and what is happening inside characters’ (mainly Anne’s and Nick’s) minds, making for stilted transitions that do not relay the story fluidly. In the end, it all comes together and you will understand, but the journey to that realization is a drawn-out and entirely snooze-worthy festival of dolls.” Cryptic Rock

” …it’s really creepy and likely to remain with you for quite a while, thanks mostly to its visual strength that gets the most of very limited locations and means, and of course its strong central performance by Gail Yost, who carries an estimated 75% of the movie completely on her own.” Search My Trash
