Expertly blends horror and tongue-in-cheek comedy... Marshall has the directorial confidence to allow scripters plenty of screen time to develop characters more fully than usual in a horror film.
(Variety)
Never goes over the edge into sheer disgusting horror. It maintains a certain humorous edge... This is the kind of movie where you squirm out of enjoyment, not terror.
(Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)
A genuinely scary and suspenseful thriller that has enough laughs to break the tension, if only to let him built it up all over again.
(Marshall Julius, What's On in London)
Funny as well as scary... a surprisingly warm and quirky study of small-town eccentricities.
(Shaun Usher, Daily Mail )
