"Hadzihalilovic delivered what I consider to be an almost perfect second feature."
"The final thirty minutes are a true delight, even when Raaphorst doesn't cash in on the tension and the gore, the creature effects and designs alone are enough to keep the film going."
"The film's excruciating pacing combined with the wacky fantasy elements make it a thoroughly enjoyable rollercoaster ride."
"As is the case with most (if not all) genre films, in the end it's the execution that matters and that's where this film shines bright."
