Reviews [click links to read more]:

ToB has just enough interesting camerawork and hilariously childish dialogue, as well as enough pathetic, drawn-out, non-payoff plot points and tension-building scenes that drag on longer than fossil fuels will, to keep this reviewer consistently enlivened.” B is for Brains

“It feels like the makers of this flick read Slasher Movies for Dummies and took every cliche they could find, from the mute, masked, jumpsuit-clad killer to the horny “teenagers” (played by 30-year-olds) looking to party in an old, spooky building to the old “we shouldn’t mess with that stuff” Ouiji Board ritual to oblivious lines like, “What do you mean ‘They’re dead’?” Poor acting, dank lighting and a script full of padded scenes…” Black Horror Movies

“If you’ve ever seen a slasher movie before, you’ve already seen this movie […] If someone leaves the roof for any reason, kiss them goodbye. The gore effects are at Monty Python level. Large hoses of blood spray the room if someone gets cut. There are also two scenes of naked breasts. Blood. Breasts. It’s all here.” Dr Gore’s Movie Reviews
