The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Liam Lacey
Crude, rude, nasty fun.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The essential problem with the movie isn't that it's loud, violent, and gory, but that, before Carpenter ratchets up the tension in the final 35 minutes, it's not especially interesting.
San Francisco Chronicle - Bob Graham
The lead actors on both sides of the vampire divide are all strong personalities.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie has a certain mordant humor, and some macho dialogue that's funny. Woods manfully keeps a straight face through goofy situations where many another actor would have signaled us with a wink. But the movie is not scary, and the plot is just one gory showdown after another.
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
James Woods adds another hateful, embittered creep to his gallery of losers, neurotics and junkyard dogs with vampire slayer Jack Crow.
