Allmovie gave the film a negative review, writing "Genre fans generously overlook bad logic in exchange for action and overkill, but the plot holes that litter director/screenwriter Gary Graver's story are never plugged with the cheap spectacle that might have given this by-the-numbers stalker film a reason to exist."
The film was released on VHS in the United States by Vestron Video. This version is currently out of print.
On 11/09/2013, the film was officially released on DVD by Code Red DVD.
