Reviews:
Twigg does a great job with his shot selection, never keeping the frame in one place for too long, and speckling the film with some great overhead shots […] Shriekshow is stained with high quality kills that are studio quality. The effects team also gives birth to some absolutely terrific terror characters.” Horror Nation

“Overall, Shriekshow is an enjoyable way to spend 105 minutes. As mentioned, I would have liked it better if it was shorter than that, but it works well enough at 105. Although the movie was obviously made on a very low budget, there were times when I was quite impressed by the cinematography; there are some cool camera moves and nice lighting choices.” Life Between Frames

“The directing by Brad Twigg is so good in Shriekshow. The sound is amazing, the pace of the film is never slow or dull. Although the movie is almost two hours long, it never feels like a chore watching it. It is entertaining from start to finish […] Shriekshow, in my opinion, is his best movie, without question.” Pop Horror
