The Spinning Image called it "a creaky diversion with stagey acting and an obvious lack of funds to open it out, yet the strength of Jacobs' yarn was such that it showed through even the most impoverished of tellings." On his website Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings, Dave Sindelar commended the film for its character development, climax which he called "suitably tense and eerie".
