Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Regrettably, all too often the tone lurches from stylish suspense to smart-ass in-jokiness and silly slapstick."
‑ , Time Out
"Like one of the victims, Innocent Blood feels about five quarts low."
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"The incessant shots of old, and better, vampire movies on the various characters' TVs become distracting and annoying."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A fitting follow-up to American Werewolf"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"It loses steam and coherence about midway through, leaving us rooting for it but doomed to disappointment."
‑ Kathleen Maher, Austin Chronicle
"[An] overlong, overproduced spectacle."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Cameo appearances by terror icons Dario Argento, Sam Raimi, and Tom Savini help make Innocent Blood a hoot for horror fans, but you don't have to be a gorehound or a vampire lover to get a kick out of the film's virulent mix of guts and guffaws."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"No review available."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Not for all tastes, but a wild ride if you get into it."
‑ Andreas Samuelson, Slasherpool
"This anemic vampire tale boasts an interesting premise but suffers from lethargic pacing and an overdose of splatter special effects."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Innocent Blood is an uncomfortable marriage of vampires and mobsters; it doesn't work on either the supernatural or the criminal level."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It lacks the bite (so to speak) of the classics in this genre, but is a stylish blend of cool black comedy and obvious gore."
‑ , Film4
"A stupid, badly paced horror-comedy that's not funny, scary or suspenseful. A dog."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"Pretty fair vampire film suffering from Landis' usual over-producing."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
