Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The film is clearly inspired by the world of H.P. Lovecraft […] The cinematography looks impressive, the sound is clean, and the moody synth score further complements the intended tone. Henni is easy to watch and the practical effects are of a high standard.” Adam the Movie God

“It is a gripping little film, aided by Samir El Alaoui’s atmospheric synth score; and by Lisa Henni’s acting. She is clearly anxious – reasonably so – and her portrayal of the key character fits the story beautifully.” Alice Field, Ready Steady Cut!
