Reviews [click links to read more]:
“Dry Bones is a damn good horror comedy that, if you give it a chance, you will enjoy it. It’s a little slow at times but the top-notch performances by co-director O’Hear and Rochon make up for the somewhat lackadaisical pace. Just give it a chance. You will dig it.” 411 Mania
“Fun, low budget indie flick featuring the lovely Debbie Rochon as a disgustingly vile succubus. The cast all do pretty well in their roles. The dialogue at times is genuinely funny. The succubus costume looks cheaply made ‘n’ rubbery but it works for the tone of this film. Overall, Dry Bones is a neat lil creature feature.” Heaven Sent But Hell Raised
“For a monster movie it surprisingly has little blood and guts but it does have human skeletons that you can roll up like a rug. Overall it’s a well directed piece by the duo of Lamberson and O’ Hear that keeps you entertained and holds your attention.” Horror Screams Video Vault
“The entire cast offers up some great performances and work very well with each other. That is something very rare in the indie horror community. Most indie horror films have a cast of people trying to be the next De Niro from Taxi Driver while others lack experience to actually deliver their lines and not just read them.” Horror Society
“Dry Bones is a damn fine time for those into low budget horror. There’s really nothing to complain about with this one. I’m sure plenty would argue that the film could use some more gore but it honestly functions just as well without it.” Foul Feast
“Boasting a macabre sense of humor and a refreshingly diverse cast of characters slanting older than usual, this is an unusually smart take of middle-aged melancholia with enough gruesome highlights to keep it palatable for horror fans. Give this one a spin.” Mondo Digital
