“Haphazard editing, sudden sex scenes, and other nonsensical non-sequiturs contribute additional carelessness to this cacophony of virtually unwatchable chaos. If Lindsay Lohan weren’t sleepwalking through it, you’d have never heard of Among the Shadows, and would be blissfully better off for it.” Culture Crypt

“The saddest element is the unfortunate Miss Lohan: her contributions clearly filmed solo – and seemingly in a different dimension to everyone else – she is awkwardly cut and pasted into scenes with actors she never met and sound that doesn’t match. She also appears to be reading from an autocue and is periodically replaced with an all too obvious double.” Horror Screams Video Vault

“this movie will test your endurance because these are some of the worst visuals I have seen in my life. I don’t believe I can overstate this enough, the visuals are TERRIBLE. There are scenes where the characters who are supposed to be on the streets of France are standing behind a blatant blue screen so bad, it is made to look even worse when a character moves in the shot.” Society Reviews

“European politics, werewolves, vampires and Lindsay Lohan. We have the makings of an epic here, an epic train wreck that is. Among the Shadows does not disappoint, writer Mark Morgan and director Tiago Mesquita serve up a cocktail of incomprehensible plotting and awful dialogue.” Voices from the Balcony
