Injecting explicit imagery into an old-fashioned possession story, writer-director Ivan Kavanagh brandishes his unusual mix of styles right from the beginning.

Peter Debruge, Variety, 2014-10-13

 

Piers McGrail's nuanced, moody cinematography brings out the best in writer-director Ivan Kavanagh's over-mannered but effectively creepy ghost story.

Simon Abrams, Village Voice, 2014-10-07

 

Over all, the action is too cryptic, and the pedestrian dialogue doesn't help.

Anita Gates, New York Times, 2014-10-09
