Seattle TimesSeattle Times

"Unscary and unfun."


"Would've made more sense as a straight-up R-rated splatterfest."

Chicago TribuneChicago Tribune

"While there’s enough ambient dread... to indicate why the video games are so popular, there’s more by-the-numbers plotting than needed."

"Like Teletubbies with chainsaws... it’s absurd. But not in a good way."

The TimesThe Times

"A wasted opportunity – nobody involved has a feel for the material."
