Tracy Allen PopHorror.com I was hoping to see an In The Mouth Of Madness-type of spiral into blood-drenched insanity. What I got was a stressed out guy with a messed up life who couldn't stop imagining ghastly, grisly scenes. Rated: 4/10 Mar 31, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Ben M The two critics' reviews linked to this film actually reference a Canadian film of the same name. This is a decent straight-to-tv Australian thriller. Perfectly watchable with a good soundtrack and some tension. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review Audience Member If this was based on a true story, I feel sorry for those involved that this was the movie that told their story. The terrible script and laughable directing does a disservice to those involved in these truly despicable events. This story would have been better served with a documentary. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A horror writer cracks under the intense pressure to capitalize on his hot status in the film industry. His cocaine-using wife and kids needing help with their homework only make things worse. Thanks to our Canadian content laws for tv and radio, I recognized Carole Pope and Rough Trade quickly as the punk group.
