San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
A premise so rock-solid, so guaranteed to please, that it almost doesn't matter that the movie is otherwise a routine slasher, and not a particularly scary one.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
Like Frankenstein's monster before the lightning strikes, it's all recycled cold flesh and bolts, without a twitch of originality.

Fun if you like this kind of thing and don't expect too much of it.

By James Berardinelli
With each death, the film becomes less interesting. By the end, it's just a routine slasher flick with a too-predictable final "twist."

The film is competently made, and the attractive cast emotes and screams energetically.

By Ty Burr
Proficiently filmed and utterly uninspired.

Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
Spottily directed and lacking the dubious merits of even the Friday the 13th franchise, this is one slasher film that should die a quick and lonely box-office death.

It's simply terrible.
