TV Guide remarked that the film was "a new low for the franchise." Dread Central gave the film a negative review, likening it to Mystery Science Theater 3000 fare. Bloody Disgusting also gave a negative review, stating that the film "ranks right up there with Troll 2 as the most hilarious bad movie ever made" and that they believed that the film kept the names of the actors and the town to "cut down on the people forgetting each others names because they had a hard enough time remembering their lines".
