'It’s not an experience to relish, exactly, but it’s still one that’s fully capable of blowing you away.’ ★★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph

‘Ramsay has made a terrific short story, economical as hell but also so moment-for-moment gripping that you want to pore over its every shot, its every dark cranny.’ ★★★★★ AA Dowd, The AV Club
