"Pushes the Tinseltown nightmare scenario to inventive and exciting extremes"
"Skillful combination of occult thriller and Cronenbergian gruesome-fest"
"Harrowing and insightful, unafraid to go to places both dark and deep."
"I really can’t recommend this flick enough; it’s mean, gory, and a great homage to genre’s past while still being its own thang; and I haven’t enjoyed a fright flick this much in a longassed time."
