Time Out says
And so Rowe must attempt to wrestle the truth from the supposedly brilliant young mind. But debut writer-director Gregory J Read makes it hard to care, offering up superficial, monotonal characters (you never escape the feeling that you’re watching pretty boys playing psychopaths). Interesting plot developments – such as Alex’s fatal crush on a schoolgirl – are all too brief, buried under heavy-handed scoring and semi-intelligible waffle about secret societies, pacts and so on. The ending is unclear: the old explanatory-flashback trick might have helped in this case. Toni Collette must have owed the director quite a favour.
