— Flickering myth

Salt is ultimately a film about a mother’s perseverance, trying desperately to care for her child in an extreme situation that she is totally unequipped to deal with.

Rob: “Writer Jed Shepherd and I are obsessive horror fans and always try and push ourselves to do things that we feel haven’t been seen before in the genre, or haven’t been done in a certain way. We both love siege movies and were trying to think of the most intense, contained siege movie we could make… and somewhere along the way, the idea of a siege movie inside a Salt Circle came up and we thought that was really cool. From there we just kept throwing ideas and images at each other until we had a rough story.”

a pulse-pounding horror
— scifi now
This is a short, sharp shock of a film...genuinely frightening and with several heart-sink moments.

Short and sweet, but certainly not simple
— bloody disgusting
