“..watching this is like flipping channels randomly between a Masterpiece Theatre drama and a splatter film on Cinemax..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
2 of 4

“..this isn't "period" style; it's just sloppy..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..the whole thing collapses into an incoherent mess..”
2.5 of 4

“..the concept of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is worthy of a good chuckle or two, but the execution proves that sometimes a clever title does not beget a production of equal value..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
1 of 5

“..never comes close to a metafictional trope that inspired or, for that matter, heartfelt; rather, it's content to wallow in its own high concept, which is already more than a little trite..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]

“..joyless, deafening cinematic headache commits a different crime. It's a sin against entertainment..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
1.5 of 4

“..is almost no fun at all..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..high-camp concept with a straight face, sucking all the fun out of a geeky romp and leaving behind an oddly joyless slog that rarely seems to be in on the joke of itself..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..credibly delivers the thrills and gore it promises, though it's ultimately too lightweight and conventional to merit either cult or classic status..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a deft balance of silly, straight-faced and splattery..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
