Critics' Praise

“The filmmakers let the story slither at its own rhythm, so that the magnitude of the psychological control can be fully exposed. To accomplish that, their superb cast guides the film through a poisonous doctrine taken not from the pages of imagination but from real American folklore.”
— Carlos Aguilar, TheWrap

“In the last act, Poulton and Savage’s long fuse explodes, and they get to prove they’ve made a hell of a picture.”
— Amy Nicholson, Variety
