As Movie reported: “Even though the BBFC initially granted the uncut version its “18” classification, the British DVD will only contain a censored version.

“The Butcher Brothers, who direct and co-write, ensure that it doesn’t overstay its welcome, with the flick clocking in at seventysomething minutes minus credits. The Thompsons doesn’t skimp on the vampiric battle royales or the buckets of blood that are sloshed around.” DVD Talk

“The 82-minute mash-up of horror, melodrama, and dark comedy doesn’t slow down in one place too often, and newcomer Elizabeth Henstridge (as Francis’ conflicted love interest) adds a nice dash of strange sweetness to a movie that’s, of course, rather bloody and brutal. The new “Brit” vamps are a colorful lot, and the actors returning to play our bloodthirsty anti-heroes are clearly having some fun with their roles.” FEARnet
