Reviews:

” …as I’ve said about several producers in the UK, these kinds of ultra-cheap, assembly line films may be profitable in the short term. But in the long run, they’ll just turn people off of indie horror, if not the genre as a whole […] I’m well over endless shots of nature, random people walking around and dry kills.” Voices from the Balcony
