Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide wrote, "from a radio play written by talented British actor Leo McKern, but that's not sufficient reason to sit through it" ;[3] whereas Cinemaretro wrote, "very much a B movie feature, the film stands firmly, and really works exceptionally well on its own merits." [4]
