Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Cisneros gives a wonderful performance, investing Olivia with a quirky personality, and balancing her insecurities in adulting with inner strength […] Lynch directs with verve, with an equally deft hand for the fright-fare set pieces and for comedy, along with some well-crafted poignant scenes.” Horror Fuel

“Without spoilers, though this has an underlying romantic sub-plot, expect plenty of the red stuff when the vampires need to feed. If you’re in the market for a vamp-rom-com-thriller with plenty of affectionate ribbing/staking to the genre, Red Snow is the biting satire for you.” iHorror

” …if you’re down for something a little sweet mixed in with all that tangy blood, Red Snow is a real treat. It doesn’t reinvent the vampire wheel, but the unwillingness to compromise on Olivia’s character and the deliciously satisfying ending make this a refreshingly rare gem in its own right.” Nightmare on Film Street

“There are definite limitations revealed in how the story itself was executed, especially when more vampires got involved later on. Whether due to budget or time constraints, certain elements of Red Snow felt underdeveloped. The weakest link seemed to be Luke’s gang of vampires led by Laura Kennon’s Jackie.” Nightmarish Conjurings
