The best performance comes from relative newcomer Bostin Christopher, who in the titular role of Otis conveys a well-calibrated blend of volatile menace and genuine pathos.

…the movie is ruled by Bostin Christopher. As Otis, he steals the show. You despise him. You pity him. You’re not sure what you want to happen to him. Between the quirkiness of this movie and the alternately toucing and chilling performance by Christopher, the mere mention of the name Otis will now forever bring forth memories of this movie and this character.
-Neil Anderson, SXSW Film Critic
Christopher turns in a fantastic performance as Otis
-Johnny Butane, DreadCentral.Com
Thanks to Christopher’s wonderfully nuanced performance, you are never quite sure of Otis’s intentions, filling these scenes with a marvellous sense of tension and foreboding
– Chris Tilly, IGN.com
Christopher’s performance as the lumbering psychotic is a brave, pitched piece of mental and physical comedy.
-Collin Armstrong, twitchfilm.net
the performances are across-the-board great
-Capone, ain’t cool news
Christopher, as the shambling man-child Otis, strikes the essential balance between black comedy and enough menace to keep him from becoming appealing.
-Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
Otis is destined to join the ranks of Freddie and Jason among the most gruesome, twisted souls in horror movie history. Christopher…[is]…chilling. Otis is a new horror icon for a new generation of films bound for cult status.
by Larry Richman
Every actor will be recognizable from other movies even if their names are not household words with the exception of Otis. Otis, however, could not be more real or despicable! He is wonderfully evil, pathetic, and deranged yet still evokes sympathy from the audience.
