REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Is Smiley real or a prank? Is he coming after Ashley? Will horror fans care? Doubtful..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..starts by borrowing the key concept of "Candyman," ends with a denouement heavily indebted to "Scream," and stuffs its middle with a dismayingly high quotient of lazy false scares..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
“..a half-cocked horror fiasco filled with cliches, pitiful dialogue, and clumsy aesthetics..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
