Variety - 11/03/2008
"Watkins delivers a muscular chiller straddling action/horror terrain...with Chris Ross' widescreen lensing highlighted by effective aerial shots."
Total Film - 01/01/2009 3 stars out of 5 -- "Watkins' first stab at directing is vicious and visceral....The social scares dig deep; the genre tics and tricks twist the knife."
Empire - 02/01/2009 4 stars out of 5 -- "James Watkins delivers one of the best of the recent crop, name-checking all the right forebears while seasoning his movie with an niftily judged 'snatched-from-the-headlines' feel."
