Consensus: A voodoo horror flick without the mojo, Venom is chock full of gory impalings of interchangeable teenage girls and hunky guys by an unstoppable zombie whose unimaginative rampage quickly lulls us to sleep.

This straight-up slasher flick probably should have gone straight to video for the cheesy-looking, computer-generated snakes alone.

Even by the standards of the current Miramax fire sale, this misbegotten horror film deserved to go direct to video. Or cable. Or oblivion.

Fun, very tense, and occasionally creepy.

Time Out

The slasher clichés on reshuffle are old enough to predate the births of most of the flick's nubile victims-to-be, including tight-T-shirt wearer Agnes Bruckner.

Basically just a moss-strewn remake of his 1997 hit, I Know What You Did Last Summer.

None of the actors is identified until the very end of the credits; in fact, it would have been a kindness not to name them at all, so I won't here.

A mud-simple horror trudge set in a swamp colony of Abercrombie models.

Variety

As mindless scare machines go, Dimension Films' bayou-set slasher thriller acquits itself well enough. Gratuitously gory and derivative to the core, Venom manages to deliver some effective frights in between large swaths of voodoo gibberish.

Cinema em Cena

Gillespie consegue criar momentos eficientes de tensão a partir de um roteiro que, mesmo absurdo, sabe explorar bem as convenções do gênero. E, de brinde, o filme ainda conta com uma ótima fotografia.

Dull with random killings and many cliches. Ethnic horror gone wrong. Ending was the worst thing ever, you can't kill the monster except using a truck?

Caught this on TV last night, surprised I had not heard of it. A decent little slasher film with some emerging young stars in the cast. Not very gory but feels… More

How bad was Venom? It was so bad, that they couldn't even get things to jump out and scare you at the right time! It absolutely kills me! The story is… More
