The critical consensus

If Ken Russell remade The Bunker it might look like this.

***(*)(*)Jamie Russell, Total Film, 05/07/2011

Means well but ultimately lacks original thrills.

**(*)(*)(*)Lee Griffiths, Little White Lies, 07/07/2011

The two leads manage to keep their heads, at least until the last 10 minutes when the diabolic atrocities soar into comic-book absurdity.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 08/07/2011

Yet more low-budget horror.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Chris Tookey, Daily Mail, 08/07/2011

By keeping the action confined to the tunnels and cells of the blockhouse, Campion creates a claustrophobic setting, but for all the gore and demonic transmogrification, there's a distinct lack of chills and frights.
