Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's boring, it's shrill, and it's obnoxious."
‑ David Cornelius,

‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It would be unkind of me to intimate that Herschell Gordon Lewis' cracker revenge fantasy is a documentary, but I can't help but see a little bit of truth in it."

"Herschell Gordon Lewis' follow-up to Blood Feast is a lot better and offers some laughably cartoonish violence."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Camp classic grindhouse gore."

"It's films like this that give B-films and Southern hillbillies a bad name."

‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Fun in a bad kind of way"
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
