Metascore (Critics) Rating 6.5/10 (Between 5-8.8/10)
Chicago Tribune Critic Michael Phillips rates it 7/10 and said:
The second half’s a letdown — the audience knows where the movie’s going, and gets there before the movie does. Nonetheless it bodes nicely for longtime horror producer Travis Stevens, here making his feature debut behind the camera.
IMDB User rating 4.9/10
Reviewer omen data on 15 November 2019 rated it 5/10 and said:
Quite a disturbing film , dark and perverse in many ways. The story itself is nothing new but has deeply disturbing sexual connotations and the old silicone wall effect akin to body horror greats like David Lynch and it does on the budget accomplish a rather gruesome and warped horror.
Acting is average and the story is very average having been done many times before but the sexual perversion and accompanying gooey special effects really will have you squirming, it has some quite shocking hammer-tastic female revenge action which definitely pushes this out of the bargain basement bin. Its not great but its not bad either but most assuredly it is quite disturbing so gets a fair average 5/10 from me!
Some positivity from Critics and some of the public but many sort of like it, but don't score it very highly.
I feel the same, there were ok elements despite the rubbish acting and it did make me squirm and smile occasionally but overall not one I can recommend unless you enjoy the B Movie style horrors, which this definitely is.
MGN Rating 5.5/10
