“..this Ozploitation remake is a spookily effective fright-fest..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..rescuing the film from its weakness for cliche is its strong cast, with Dance - the go-to guy for condescending hauteur - a huge improvement on the original's campy Robert Helpmann..”
by Lynden Barber [The Guardian]
2.5 of 5
