“..instead simply too rote, too obvious, too familiar, and too beholden to well-established horror tropes to warrant much consideration..”
by Scott Weinberg [FEARnet]

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
