Sean of The Daily Rotation wrote, "From writer/director Richard Powell. The film stars Robert Nolan as John Dodd, self-loathing patriarch of a family he can’t wait to see dismantle. His daughter is off to college soon, and John quietly thinks over the rest of his life in his mind. The use of voice over is often criticized as lazy filmmaking, and all too often it pops up in student projects. Here, however, Powell has crafted a story that requires it, and it’s the hinge that holds up the rest of the film. Without spoiling anything, it’s not really character narration, but the hint that it is at the beginning sets the tone for the rest of the film nicely, allowing the horror elements to slowly creep their way into the film.
