“It’s slick, it moves swiftly, it’s entertaining as hell, and, as I said, it really gets under your skin. It’s scary in a way you’re not anticipating it to be, and when the movie is widely available it should find a wide audience because of that. The horror movie world will no doubt love it.” 411 Mania
