Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Judging from the website much of it was shot in front of a green screen. And the results are not realistic. However, this frequently gives scenes a vibe that matches the supernatural goings-on. Chalk that up to a happy accident. The result is a film that has enough going for it that you won’t need to be reawakened after it’s over. But it’s still too generic to be anything more than watchable.” Voices from the Balcony
