It’s not the best low budget horror film to ever come along but it definitely hits a home run with the special effects work". Adam Tyner of DVD Talk rated it 3/5 stars and called it "sick, twisted, and really offbeat." Paul Pritchard of DVD Verdict criticized the film for its focus on gore over story.
