“There’s plenty of edge-of-the-seat action at closure and still enough time to deliver a reveal to turn events, leaving things up in the air with a suitably sinister twist.” Ballistic Blood Bullets
” …that smoke monster is a visually thrilling entity when it’s on the screen chasing after people and evaporating them. If only it had more screen time. Cheaper, I suppose, to paint characters pale, have them drip black ooze, and run around with black contact lenses doing a zombie riff […] The make-up is fine and all; I just wanted more wanton smoke monster attacks and less zombie fu.” 1/5 Dread Central
” …the film’s plot involving the party fleeing from the cloud of black smoke and the fight for an antidote is simply not interesting enough, nor directed with enough tension. The plot has also been designed to keep throwing in twists […] but these become increasingly more preposterous in the story’s need to keep compounding things.” Moria
