“Keeping things moving was director David Kent-Watson, a Twemlow regular who had already directed GBH and Target: Eve Island for the Mancunian. His direction brings an air of professionalism to the film, conjuring up a tense atmosphere which permeates the movie with a palpable sense of unease and menace. Bearing in mind the minuscule budget he was working with, Kent-Watson also achieves some memorable and highly effective sequences.” Sleaze Diary
