"A chillingly savage debut feature from co-directors and screenwriters Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy that makes a strong case for them to be the heirs to the Coen Brothers' wintry crime drama throne." – Slashfilm
"This atmospheric, expertly crafted little New England noir has droll dialogue, a female empowerment theme and a sly use of crime elements." – The Hollywood Reporter
