Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Just when you thought camp was dead, along comes this bizarre cross between a Tarantino knockoff and a Hammer horror film."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"After Rayne breaks out of the circus, it's a simple story, really, about a mixed-up girl who wants to slay her father."
‑ Carla Blumenkranz, Village Voice
"At the rate Boll's improving, he'll achieve a film worthy of a thumbs up rating sometime late next decade."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Only as bad as ordinary bad films and not as bad as getting your eyelid caught on a nail."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"So how does a filmmaker bounce back from an almost universally reviled action-horror mistake? Well, if your name is Uwe Boll, you don't."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Who is Uwe Boll and why does he hate moviegoers so? The German hack, the one-man Blitzkrieg of Bad, is the worst filmmaker in the movies today."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Most of the budget seems to have been spent on the cast, with apparently little left over for sets or costumes."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"The fight scenes are the worst kind of editing-room cheating, meant to cover for actors who haven't been trained to wield anything more intimidating than a cell phone."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"This is a movie that begs you not to watch it."
‑ David Cornelius,
"All in all, not as bad as you'd suspect and certainly serviceable for all who love the bloody, low-budget vamping gone wild."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"It's time to start paying attention to the oeuvre of German director Uwe Boll. At this rate, he'll become the Ed Wood of this new movie century."
‑ Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly
"Uwe Boll is such a bad director that it must be intentional."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Turgid drama and incompetently staged action sequences..."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"BloodRayne is quite cheesy -- the costumes resemble something out of the cosplay closet, and the dialogue is often appalling."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"The supporting cast is mind-melting: Michael Madsen is as out of place in this Medieval milieu as Meat Loaf in a hoop skirt, and Meat Loaf is just out of place."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
