Consensus: Bordello of Blood is not as scary or funny as it thinks it is (or should've been), and all of Dennis Miller's lines sound like castoffs from his stand-up material.

Creative Loafing

Bordello of Blood proves to be a tough slog, with a workable premise defeated by clumsy plotting and miscast actors. And no one is more ill at ease than lead Dennis Miller.
