by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
