ReceptionEdit

Reviews for the film have been mixed. Matt Boiselle writing for Dread Central gave the film two and a half stars saying "Overall, this version of a film that back in the day tried very hard to stand alone unfortunately doesn’t do enough to raise itself up from a seated position. If you’re in the mood to compare and contrast the old with the new, then by all means give this one a watch, but I saw it as a singular view and not much more."[4] John DeFore with The Hollywood Reporter called the film "a fairly mild thriller that, in the crowded horror marketplace, will rely on its pedigree for most of its appeal."[5]

Kimber Myers of the Los Angeles Times enjoyed the film. "A remake of Francis Ford Coppola’s early horror film “Dementia 13” likely wasn’t on anyone’s wish list, but this update from Richard LeMay is an enjoyably cheap little gift...Beyond its style, “Dementia 13” doesn’t innovate, but it’s a capably made indie that should please genre fans searching for a haunted diversion."[6]
