“Throughout, this is a gripping piece of story-telling, and the ending of this story is, as I reflect on it now, absolutely note-perfect, stopping the audience from getting into a cosy comfort zone to the last. When you consider that a film of this caliber was made on a shoestring budget in seventeen days, you could be forgiven for feeling that Hollywood today is a spent force when it comes to all the important things like vision, honesty and integrity.” – brutalashell.com, Keri O’Shea

“Chad Crawford Kinkle impressively imbues this supernatural world of backwoods mysticism with a plausible milieu while still staying committed to the film’s own brewing insanity.” – Slant Magazine, Nick McCarthy

“Kinkle shows a deft hand at pacing and the gore is kept to a minimum.” – Village Voice, Pete Vonder Haar

“The brisk, brief feature appears more atmospheric than terrifying, but its bare-bones tale gets under the skin.” – Variety, Rob Nelson
