by Jay Stone [Postmedia News]
2 of 4

“..looks low budget and underpopulated, springs a couple of surprises that should be spine-tingling but are not, and drops hints about characters' actions and backgrounds without following through..”
by Barbara Vancheri [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]
“..feisty girl + troubled young man + house full of ugly secrets = hackneyed horror movie you've seen a hundred times before, even if Jennifer Lawrence keeps it watchable..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
