Fresh: Director Ryhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train) is too talented for material this retro-junky, but he and screenwriter David Cohen keep the action coming hard and fast ...
- Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Rotten: There is no flair, no suspense, not one frame composed with more in mind than getting a Beavis-type to chortle, "Cool."
- Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, Friday, May 10, 2013
Rotten: The expectations raised by the first 20 minutes ... make it all the more disappointing when incoherent slaughter replaces soul-chilling dread.

This one is special. As horror movies go, this one's got it all: great gore effects, a real curveball of a story and a wonderfully evil villain. He is the Man Death; he brings violence, butchery and pain to everything he touches, everywhere he goes and all those he meets. But I defy you to spot him at the beginning of the film. The less I tell you about this film, the better. It starts with a couple in a car, having a series of rather frosty exchanges. The longer you watch, the clearer it becomes that the nature of thier relationship is more complex than meets the eye. Meanwhile, a small-time gang of murdering, burgling lowlives is coming off a botched job. And then they cross paths. And then a female survivor of a college-co-ed-massacre turns up again, and she knows, before anyone else does, who the greater evil is; who to really be afraid of. The Man Death is like a slightly warmer version of Anton Chighur from No Country; a truly fascinating character, but to tell you why would ruin some of the pleasure of this movie. See it. Even if not no other reason than to see Ryuhei Kitamura's ingenious, novel and jaw-dropping gore gags. See it before anyone ruins the big blockbuster effect. My only gripe about this movie is that the dialogue is a little uneven: it's kind of clunky in places, and delightfully apt in others. "You just killed the one person who had a soul."
