Reviews:

“Disappointingly, it doesn’t quite deliver the gut punch frights and apt pace in the second half to intensify the tension and up ante enough to make it more than just sufficient. The story slackens and glides when it should hasten, however, Helmink and Rauchelbach retain an unsettling atmosphere with Hitchcockian cogs which slink under the skin enough to rankle but not frighten.” Starburst
