Reception for the film was mostly positive. Film Threat gave the film four stars, calling it "a scream in more ways than one". DVD Talk commented that the movie lacked "quality acting, production values, dialogue, or even singing voices. Yet, for some strange reason, when the entire thirty-minute film is over, all those shortcomings are completely forgivable."
