  • Summary: A state-of-the-art martial arts horror epic.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 7
  2. Negative: 4 out of 7
  1. A swift and amusing martial-action, adventure-horror picture with a bold, larger-than-life comic-book sensibility and richly atmospheric production design.
  2. 50
    It's a sloppy, fun, late-'80s style Hong Kong action flick full of pogo-dancing zombies and voracious vampires who look vaguely like Siamese cats with spoiled cottage cheese cooked onto their faces.
  3. Pleasantly cheesy but undistinguished martial-arts and horror fare.

    Murky, third-rate martial-arts film.
  5. 30
    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.
  6. 30
    The finale is a near-abstract mess (decapitation, impalation, "Alien" birth) -- in an empathic gesture, the filmmakers end it all with a few sticks of TNT.

    Has the stench less of rotting flesh than the whiff of a thoughtless quickie.
