Reviews:

“The writing is not good and the lines aren’t sharp or quotable, just basic and poorly performed in most cases. As for insanity, there is none of that here, sadly. As badly as the movie wants to be edgy and shocking, it never even comes close and in the end, has no real memorable or over the top moments to look back on.” Marc Fusion

“Interestingly, the torture starts late in the game, leaving room to expose the protagonist, and, more importantly, the antagonists. This one is all about the villains and their quirks. For me, this film started 35 minutes in, after an insurmountable introduction. It does get better in acts two and three.” Tales of Terror
