It's time for Derrickson, who also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to master a new ritual.Mark Jenkins, NPR, 07.03.2014
Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times, 07.07.2014
Director Scott Derrickson demonstrates a knack for atmosphere but little sense of pacing; some sequences are effectively spooky (particularly one set at the Bronx Zoo), though just as many feel uninspired.Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 07.06.2014
You'll be jolted a couple of times, but these aren't scares that will stay with you. How about retiring "based on a true story" in favour of "based on a good story"?Kim Newman, Empire Magazine, 08.17.2014
