What are critics saying?


Los Angeles Times by

A baroque, bloody fantasy-adventure that stubbornly remains less than the sum of its parts.


The New York Times by Dave Kehr

Handsome, well-executed film that nonetheless feels a bit long at 111 minutes. Those who are already anime fans will certainly find it stimulating; but this may not be the one to convert the uninitiated.


TV Guide Magazine by Maitland McDonagh

It's a must-see for horror buffs and anime fans; and while it lacks the haunting thematic underpinnings of "Blood The Last Vampire," -- it's a more satisfying movie-going experience.


Austin Chronicle by Marc Savlov

As usual with anime features, just because it's animated doesn't mean it's for kids; heads roll and blood spurts, so know that going in, mom and dad. For the older crowd, though, it's gory and gorgeous bliss.
