Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Forget the usual Transylvania or London settings: This horror flick has the distinction of being set in scary Mississippi."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"It's a frightfully silly and insignificant horror film, whose only virtue is in the makeup."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A movie that suggests that not just the chickens but the locust-monsters inevitably will come home to roost in a postbellum South -- a 'Heart of Dixie' -- haunted by its violent, bigoted past."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Gruesome gore is the sole highlight."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The Beast Within is an above-average monster movie with good actors and a sometimes comprehensible plot."
‑ J.C. Maçek III, PopMatters
