Reviews and Quotes 2

"A ghoulish splatter comedy that uses wildly excessive gore to provoke the kind of shock that lies between a laugh
and a scream."
— Dave Kehr

"Just when things start getting too grisly, Raimi rushes in with a hilarious, sendup joke to remind us that all this blood and guts is meant in spooky
Grand Guignol fun."
— Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"A flashy good-natured display of special effects and scare tactics so extreme they can only be taken for laughs."
Variety
