Critical response[edit]

Dread Central rated the film 1/5, calling it "yet another post-Saw abduction/torture flick on a low budget", made with a lack of skill and with one-dimensional characters.[6] Horror Chronicles criticised the production values and noted a similarity to Hostel but suggested it might appeal to fans of torture porn.[7] Horror News was more positive, praising it for some originality, while noting the lack of a backstory.[8]
