“With an interesting blend of gore, sex, and heartfelt confiding in one another before the real violence begins, one could think of Meet the Feebles way back in the day in comparison to the outwardly demented style of storytelling that’s on display here. I mean, if you like headless plush dolls oozing with fake blood, and the occasional puppet boobs bouncing freely, then I’d certainly recommend this film for you…” Matt Boiselle, Dread Central

” …the concept of using puppets as your main characters in a movie has been done numerous times before, particularly and surprisingly in the horror genre itself. But it’s a project with definite heart and there are clearly a passionate and talented team working behind the scenes.” Horror Asylum

” …the movie is as derivative as its dialogue is clichéd, its characters are flat and it’s buildup is predictable … and these are all the aspects that make this movie so good, so pretty much unique – because the film’s cast as a whole is made up from puppets, and rather simple and comical ones at that, giving the situations (including sexual situations), the dialogue, the gore a whole new (and rather hilarious) dimension.” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash

“The directing from Jon Bristol is terrific; his camera placement showed a great ability of making the realistic objects perfectly match up with the puppets […] While this may not appeal to everyone, I personally think it doesn’t get much better than watching puppets getting hunted and killed in the woods. It’s a highly entertaining puppet slasher romp…” Raul Vantassle, The Movie Sleuth
