REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's really just a cheap slasher flick with some talented actors masking the banality with clever dialogue and overwhelming intensity..”
by Witney Seibold [Crave Online]
“..it's a mortgage-crisis nightmare noir that could have been pulpy fun..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..ratchets up the intensity with harsh lighting and self-conscious camera angles, so that more than a few melodramatic scenes are quite funny, intentionally or not..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
