Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Murky, third-rate martial-arts film."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"Pleasantly cheesy but undistinguished martial-arts and horror fare."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"Most disappointing is Hark franchising his name before the sell-by date has expired on his own filmmaking career."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A passable attempt to mix the cheesy DIY effects of the first two Evil Dead movies with the... epic on a budget aesthetics of a The Bride With White Hair."
‑ Edward Havens, FilmJerk.com
"The thrill is mostly gone in this supernatural mess."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"You begin to realize that whatever name they want to give this dish, the chief ingredients remain ham, cheese and corn."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"I loves me a good kung fu zombie vampire action horror comedy flick, and Vampire Hunters delivers."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"It's more silly than scary and relies excessively on surprisingly low-rent CGI effects and crude wirework to drum up interest in the slight story."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Project has the stench less of rotting flesh than the whiff of a thoughtless quickie."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Anything that reminds us that there are mass-entertainment options beyond Hollywood's banal formulas is worthwhile."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Despite a few good fights, the stunts are indifferently executed."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"Midnight-movie-riffic, and the less sense it makes, the more fun it becomes."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
