” …there are some wild twists and turns in the film’s lore that keep you on your toes. There’s also some truly gnarly kills in here that place it perfectly in-between sci-fi and slasher – so much so that one might dare to suggest a sense of cosmic horror about the whole affair […] will be slightly amusing to the most shallow of genre film geeks, and everyone else will find it rather annoying.” FilmBook
