Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mary, a descendant of the prototypical vampire slayer, works at a Virgin megastore in New Orleans, and the gratuitous use of the city during Mardi Gras is the least of this movie's unoriginal sins."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Even true believers will have a hard time sinking their fangs into this thoroughly perfunctory affair."
‑ Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz
"A fast-paced and captivating exercise in gory action-horror, à la Wesley Snipes's 1998 bloodsucker epic, Blade."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Without a single scare to its credit nor a particularly inspired storyline, this film fails to justify its existence."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"We're talking 5,940 seconds better spent doing anything else under the sun, including but not limited to pulling out one's toenails one by one."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"One half-expects a sexually subversive, blood-soaked gay carnival. Instead, Simon makes the effete Dracula (Butler) suck on some abuse."
‑ , Time Out
"Wilts when compared in the light with other Dracula films."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"It's still a fun bit of "Matrix" lite horror fare..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"While the result certainly doesn't suck, it does lack any real bite."
‑ , Film4
"[It] will be consigned to the bin with all the other Dracula rejects."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"Dracula may stay undead in the new millennium, but there's not a sign of life -- oh, that bloodless acting -- in this sorry mess."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A perfect example of the kind of rigidly conventional vampire movie that wearies contemporary horror buffs."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Too scary, too gory, too gross."
‑ Ellen MacKay, Common Sense Media
"The use of Craven's name in the title is a cheesy marketing ploy and the secret to the fanged suitor's aversion to all things Christian is an even cheesier hoot."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"There's enough holes in the plot to drive a 40-foot hearse through."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
