Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle called it "a disappointing final film for ex-Hammer Studios director John Gilling". Glenn Kay, who wrote Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide, described it as an out of print film that is considered "uninspired and unimpressive" by those who have seen it.
