    Jesse Cataldo Slant Magazine

    The film is eventually revealed as less interested in subverting or playing off its influences than rigorously retracing them. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    It barely has a fright in it on its own, this bloody, Mexican-made supernatural thriller set in the hill country near Tijuana. But open it with a hot “Blue is the Warmest Color” sex scene, toss in a few other hot and heavy moments and a generous helping of nudity and you can be sure, at least, of getting a Hollywood studio’s attention. show more

    Robert Abele Los Angeles Times

    Bogliano — who hit it big in indie horror with "Penumbra" and "Room for Tourists" — is a mood man, adept at unease and admirably judicious about shock moments, if not exactly skilled with storytelling or pacing. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    A muddled supernatural thriller that fails to capitalize on either its horrific prologue or eerie location. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    Promises much in an ominously atmospheric package that nods to 1970s genre stylings. But the payoff is on the meh side. show more
