"Already embraced on the festival circuit, the movie evokes the bleak, deadpan humor of the Coen brothers and the stylish bloodshed of Quentin Tarantino, while delivering a pained vision of rural down-home Americana all its own." –New York Times
"The most suspenseful American film of the year." –Indiewire
"Has the plainspoken grace of Hitchcock's thrillers." –Film.com
