Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's one of Bava's most accomplished works, executed with a dazzling, unprecedented use of bright colors and deep shadows (sometimes both at once)."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The plot becomes secondary to spectacle of the dreamy dance of death, choreographed with sadistic precision, delivered in lurid color, spied upon with a restlessly gliding camera."
‑ Sean Axmaker, St@tic Multimedia
"Few films are anywhere near as lovely as the bloody and brutal 'Blood and Black Lace.'"
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
"This B-film has a wooden script, leaden acting and uninteresting characters, but manages to show flashes of competence through the colorful direction of Bava."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The dummies here reflect a society's ruthless commoditization of the body and flesh."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
"a complex murder mystery raised to a higher level through artistry and innovation"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk

‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Eerie, atmospheric ancestor to the slasher flick."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
