"The Water's Edge is fantastic, I've no doubt you're going to be seeing this kid's name on the big screen very soon.... You see the hopeful wanting on his face and you know it by sight as if it's a feeling we've all felt some time in our lives"
Horror Reviews - 'The Water's Edge'
"The film pivots on the very real sense of dread, loneliness and fear felt by its main man, Robert Stenuit (Mark Drake) amongst a bleak, barren and foreboding landscape"
