Peter Debruge of Variety compared it to the work of H.G. Wells, who he said "would surely approve of this suburban mad-scientist tale". Kurt Halfyard of Twitch Film compared it to Another Earth and called it "more vexing than cathartic". Matt Boiselle of Dread Central rated it 2/5 stars and called it "sad and complex" but "hard to swallow and possibly even harder to digest."
