“..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

“..it's all so silly..”
by Ryan Turek [Shock Till You Drop]

“..it doesn't strain too hard for novelty, but pays respect to its predecessor, keeping faith with many of its quirks, mannerisms and concerns..”
by Philippa Hawker [Sydney Morning Herald]
2.5 of 5

“..I can't say this is worse than the original film, but I don't see how such a potentially interesting idea could get a 3rd act any worse than this..”
by Evan Dickson [Bloody Disgusting]
