Reviews:

“This is for lovers of punk, sleaze, kitsch, cheese, cults, all the good stuff. The dialogue is hilarious, especially that of the sassy gay coroner who said “honey” at the end of every sentence….or the hookers battling with our punkette villain.” Creep Cinema

” … capturing the nervous energy of New York City after dark, Necropolis is what cinema should be: A steaming wad of diaphanous nectar dripping from the nipples of a soul-sucking witch from the Lower East Side.” House of Self Indulgence

“Sleazy, kinky R-rated supernatural flick, so nihilistic there’s nary an entertaining moment in its 77 minutes.” John Stanley, Creature Features

” … no matter how awful the dialogue, direction, acting and production values … I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the screen for fear of missing some big-haired diabolical hoofin’. But it was not to be, and so Necropolis soon proves to be not quite as much fun as you’d hoped it to be…” Empire of the ‘B’s
