Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is aware that the plot points are absurd, and de la Iglesia visually tells the story as if it were a mean spirited comic book, but it all plays straight, with no irritating winking."
‑ Adam Lippe, Examiner.com
"Its mildly blasphemous subject matter, weak special effects, and at times murky storyline make it a tough sell to mainstream audiences anywhere."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"One key difference between the film industries in America and Spain: America would never honor a horror comedy with multiple Oscar wins, let alone nominations."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
