Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Queens-born horror specialist Stevan Mena has mastered the slow camera creep and the unusually artful vista---he even composes his own orchestral scores, good ones. But he needs to give up screenwriting, pronto. Put down the laptop, Stevan. This almost comically clichd serial-killer tale (a prequel to Mena's 2004 Malevolence) features an abandoned meatpacking plant, a riddle-spouting stalker, a buxom if lonely heroine and the always vaguely familiar Michael Biehn (Aliens) as a concerned adoptive uncle. Alexandra Daddario, recently ogled in Hall Pass, holds her own in Mena's noxiously cynical plot.
