” …tends to neglect the horror and focus more on the constant squabbling between characters that are hard to emphasize with. Add to that a pulsating score that fast becomes irritating, because it doesn’t ever give the on-screen events time or space to breathe, and you’re left with a film that could have been so much more if only it wasn’t directionless.” My Bloody Flicks

“There are some gory deaths, most of which are pulled off nicely. The creature outfit, while obviously a latex suit, is better than what we get in most films like this. However, the lack of anyone to really care about makes it hard to really get into Wrong Place, Wrong Time. A script that’s too heavy on bad dialogue and worse decisions doesn’t help either.” Voices from the Balcony

MOVIES and MANIA round-up review and rating:

This is undoubtedly Justin Price’s best film so far, although given his truly terrible past efforts that’s not saying much. The From Dust Till Dawn-influenced premise is enjoyable enough and the practical effects are more than welcome. Unfortunately, the macho histrionics are a tad too clichéd and there are no relatable characters except Sage (Franziska Schissler) so it’s difficult to feel any empathy with anyone onscreen.
