The New York Times

By Miriam Bale
This eager film piles on common fears: evil puppetry, haunted homes and overly generous hosts. So despite a sloppy and humorless execution, it is scary by association.

By Robert Abele
Cassadaga tries to scoop up enough tropes to satisfy a wide range of potential fright fans but lacks the cohesion to ever truly be effective.

By Dennis Harvey
Equal parts gory mayhem, convoluted mystery and rote romance, none of which gel together very well.
