Not a fan of \"found footage\" films, but to my surprise; I found I quite enjoyed this movie. Had good dialogue, decent plot progression, and left me wanting more. Well done!

I'm always a little iffy when it comes to \"found footage\" movies but this movie exceeded all my expectations. It's probably the first horror film I've really enjoyed in a long time. YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!!

While this movie had the potential to be an interesting horror film, the execution and acting of the characters seemed rather poor. To make things worse, the seemingly \"reporter-styles\" camera angles make it worse. My final verdict: a 2 out of 5.

If you are reading this, I hope a parasite eats your face off.

Washington Post
A ripped-from-the-headlines psychological chiller that burrows under the skin with its terrifyingly local twist. Full Review

There is a lot of nasty stuff to look at, but very little that is genuinely haunting, jolting or terrifying. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
This astonishingly effective environmental nightmare is based on reasoning that, if you've been following the science, seems all too possible. Full Review

The Bay is better than a shallow exercise, but crabby horror fans may have preferred that Levinson took a real plunge. Full Review

Entertainment Weekly
One hell of a creepy little eco-horror picture. Full Review
