Philadelphia Inquirer

By Tirdad Derakhshani
Like other entries of its pulpish ilk, the picture packs lots of violence, a fair bit of gore, and plenty of cheap scares.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Bill Stamets
Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.

Actually, Ramirez should probably have been cast in the lead, since things flatten out whenever he disappears.

USA Today

Even horror neophytes won't be spooked by a film that looks as if it were shot with a smartphone and an Itty Bitty Booklight.

Great Movie!

Freaky
