Reviews [click links to read more]:

“It’s a low-budget production, but you wouldn’t know based on the sound or picture quality. The acting is the one thing that doesn’t fully do this movie justice. However, for the most part, even the acting is impressive. Also, this movie has a runtime of 80 minutes, which is actually spot-on.” Heaven of Horror

“The radio announcements and occasional bumps in the night are likely meant to ramp up the tension; turning the film into a classic “slow burn” affair, but the pacing doesn’t quite cut the proverbial mustard […] When the bad guys do show up and Connor Roberts’ on-screen charisma takes over, though, it’s like a whole new movie.” The Scariest Things
