Noel Murray of the Los Angeles Times gave the film a favourable review, writing that it “works on a gut level” as well as “makes superb use of absence. Scenes are darkly lighted and sparsely populated and play out on spare sets with minimal dialogue. Vivas is especially successful at turning the blandness of an upscale suburb into a blank canvas for mayhem.” Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com awarded the film one-and-a-half out of four stars, writing that “Nichols and Harring give the film more than it deserves, but their work is wasted on a movie that doesn’t know what story it’s telling.”
Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter felt the film lacked tension, writing that it “somehow manages to be remarkably devoid of suspense throughout its brief running time,” yet conceded that Nichols as well as Harring “go through their paces with admirable commitment.” Staci Layne Wilson, creating for Dread Central, also commended the performances, creating that Nichols “is fantastic in the role, giving it her all,” though she ultimately really felt that followers of the initial flick would certainly be “mildly disappointed” with it in general.
