It's engrossing and well-made, but you'll need a strong stomach to get through it.

Kavanagh and Matichak do a remarkable job of capturing an amped-up version of everyday parental paranoia.

It's an intriguing, watchable but mixed bag...

The commitment to blood-vomiting, entrail-chewing special effects, and the niggle of child peril anxiety makes for an effectively propulsive genre picture.

Kavanagh once again delivers potent chills and an ominous atmosphere to create a powerfully discomforting depiction of just how far a mother would go for her son.
