Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nonstop violence, gallons of spurting blood, outrageous humor (a kitchen scene is a hoot), extreme vomiting, a drill bra, human sushi and tempura, and other perversity."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"It thrives on being nothing but another mediocre Asian entry that's cooler in description than it manages to be as a film..."

"Though bored at times by the repetitive artlessness of the gore ... I was entertained by the movie's sheer heedless hunger for the junk it's chewing up and spitting out."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A riotous blend of arterial spray and grindhouse glee."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"one of those movies that is successful only because it tries to be bad"
‑ Brian Chen, Filmcritic.com
"Shameless gore, gallows humor and guilty pleasures are the byproducts of a mechanical plot and impressive helming."
‑ Russell Edwards, Variety
"It's smart enough to really cut loose and relaxed enough to be funny."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
