Time Out says
In what’s less a matter of ‘Run, Lola, Run’ than of crawling through rat-infested sewers in a designer dress and heels while being pursued by something sinister, Potente gamely essays the scream-queen role. First-time director Smith has clearly studied enough horror movies to pepper his own with effective BOO! moments, but his script stinks more badly than the cess-pools Kate’s forced to endure. The claustrophobic locale helps marginally, but the plot’s logic-bypass mires any chance of real suspense (though one truly repellent gynaecological moment is definitely not for the squeamish). Alas, the eponymous mutant (whose identity we’re asked not to reveal) proves laughable, with ridiculous monster make-up on a fine actor, rendering the movie less terrifying than Camden Town station at rush hour.
