Critics reviews

Jarringly lit and slackly edited scenes unintentionally emphasize the disappointingly thrown-together creature as a series of disconnected rubber body parts… that are being dragged by crew members just outside of the frame’s periphery. The actors are unusually engaging for this sort of film, but they’re still ultimately reduced to the stature of bait that’s charged with interminably wandering halls that have been clearly fashioned to resembleAlien’s memorable stacked erector-set corridors.
