“This is a very visceral film from start to finish with a hell of a lot of skill on display here.”
- Patrick King, Cultured Vultures
“Steeped in psychological terror and doses of very real horror, Koontz takes the audience on a journey which ultimately parallels the scramble of Jack’s mind in uncovering the truth.”
- C.H. Newell, Film Inquiry
“A mash-up that never becomes imitation, wisely focusing on character beats instead of cheap scares.”
- Jacob Knight, Birth.Movies.Death.
“Think Memento, Blue Velvet and elements of Final Destination mashed together with a dash of the stuff nightmares are made of. It is as good a description as any but fails to do this film any kind of justice.” - C.S. Anderson, Scifi Monkeys
