Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Some low-budget manifestations of the supernatural jazz up the frights now and again, but as the novelty of worshiping a hole in the ground fades, the film paints itself into a corner.Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 08.08.2013
An impressively oozing slab of indie horror that bodes well for first-time writer-director Chad Crawford Kinkle.Rob Nelson, Variety, 08.08.2013
Kinkle shows welcome restraint in pacing his grimy little tale, even if the sum of its parts never quite feels like more than an admirably rendered campfire yarn.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 08.07.2013
Creepy atmospherics enliven this idiosyncratic chiller.Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 08.08.2013
