The critical consensus

A solidly effective little horror film, but too reliant on quotes from the genre’s past hits to establish its own distinctive identity.

***(*)(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 11/11/2015

Enough promise here to put Hardy on our radar.

***(*)(*)Josh Slater-Williams, Little White Lies, 13/11/2015

Corin Hardy’s debut feature in which a family battle malicious spirits in an ancient Irish wood is sporadically impressive.

***(*)(*)Wendy Ide, The Guardian, 12/11/2015

Corin Hardy's horror movie is visually striking but loses the plot.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 13/11/2015

You just know it will end badly and that’s exactly what happens.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 13/11/2015

Sadly the film has none of the wit or gonzo energy of Sam Raimi’s schlocky classic, though it does have supernatural fungi, which is precisely as menacing as it sounds.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/11/2015

Corin Hardy’s big-screen debut never quite delivers on its strong ideas.
