"This film is terrific. The bizarre and transgressive eroticism of the last few minutes is as shocking as anything I've seen on-screen this year."|

"Muller's imaginative spin on San Francisco's notorious Zodiac killings is not only a riveting short story but an effective piece of film as well, especially because of Marsha Hunt's portrayal of Hazel Reedy, 'a milky-eyed recluse with a past darker than she can bear.' At 90 years old, Hunt's charisma is still commanding. You can't keep your eyes off her."

"Marsha Hunt, at 90, [has] returned to the screen after a 25-year absence. It was as if she never left. She is a phenomenal, incredible actress. I mean, we sat through classic Hollywood film noir, but this -- this was new. . . . Eddie's direction was nothing short of brilliant. . . . Marsha and terrific newcomer Leah Dashe starred. And Marsha -- Marsha took down the house."
