Reviews:

“The characters suffer a bit from Scooby-Doo syndrome and constantly need to separate, some scenes seem too similar to previous scenes and the simple premise can only handle so much material. The constant meta-comments where the characters play their own actors is fun, but a bit exaggerated.” Freakpop review, translated from Portuguese

“In amongst all the blood, mayhem, possessed foetus-fighting and even more disgusting things crawling out of the toilet there’s an entertaining, knowing wit to all of this that makes it worth a watch if you can put up with the almost constant barrage of over the top craziness.” John Llewellyn Probert, House of Mortal Cinema

“A busily self-referential, indulgent picture – there’s even a namecheck for longtime Brazilain spook icon Ze do Caixao – this takes a bludgeoning approach, and goes on a good half-hour too long. Still, it has a few gross moments that evoke early Peter Jackson – alongside rather too many that evoke Troma…” The Kim Newman Web Site

” …everything is always very dark, and it is detrimental to the look of the narrative, there is also an oversight in the sound mix […] Add to this flamboyant, redundant editing, and a script that is nothing more than a collage of all the more obvious clichés…” Papo de Cinema review, translated from Portuguese
