In contemporary reviews, the Monthly Film Bulletin referred to the film as "the wildest farrago yet to have come out of the demonology genre". The review found that "the religious allegory adds little weight to the confusion of the plot"
In a retrospective review, AllMovie described the film as a rip-off of The Omen but still "offers some creepy fun for fans of Euro-horror." The review noted unique additions to the plot such as political and corporate intrigue and the fear of nuclear energy and civil unrest in the Middle East." The review also noted De Martino, who "gives the film a glossy touch during the non-horror moments but brings plenty of verve to the shocks: his best moment is a nightmare sequence in which Douglas hallucinates the nuclear plant he is working on rising from the sea and transforming into a multi-headed hydra."
