You can say this: It is never boring.

Santa Sangre's content puts it beyond the call of duty for even the most slavishly devoted art-house denizen.

Martin Unsworth

While it's not especially easy viewing, and unquestionably not for all tastes, Santa Sangre is exhilarating, challenging, enigmatic and distressing, but entirely rewarding and entertaining.

David Parkinson
Radio Times

More extravagant, but less controlled than his infamous allegorical western, El Topo.

Ross Ruediger

What's probably most amazing about Santa Sangre is that most of it works, and almost never does it feel like it's being unsettling just for the sake of it.

Total Film

The most accessible film by Mexican avant-garde auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky, his horror head-scratcher divides its time between the sanitarium and the circus.

What Jodorowsky lacks is a sense of humor, in the absence of which his films turn ludicrous.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Drawing on his training in mime and his fascination with Gnosticism, Jodorowsky converted a story about a bizarre murderer into a grand work of art, full of symbols and imagery that reach beyond language to something primal and original.

When one discusses the artform's icons, Alejandro Jodorowsky must be mentioned.

Visionary and haunting, Santa Sangre is a mixture of blood poetry and gobbledygook that keeps springing astonishingly to life.

Santa Sangre has ample affection for outcasts and much to say about religious hypocrisy.

Not as good as his previous El Topo, but pretty eye-opening all the same.

Electric Sheep

Promoted with the apt slogan 'Forget everything you have ever seen', Jodorowsky's film takes no prisoners, except maybe for purposes of torture.

Little White Lies

Jodorowsky's bold, brassy tale of psychos and circuses, Freud and fanaticism, still stirs the blood.

What an extraordinary film: creepy, humid, unwholesome - touched with moments of crazed inspiration.

[A] red-hot Jungian gumbo of clowns, nuns, amputated arms and a dead elephant.

Masterfully directed and relentlessly lurid, Santa Sangre somehow manages to make Jodorowsky's acid western El Topo look sane.

The impression is of an old-school horror with sporadically interesting experimental ornamentation.

A ridiculous, pretentious, fascinating, and unforgettable horror film from one of cinema's true originals.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A surreal circus of invention, pretension and astonishment that, like many carnivals, touts the talents of its performers but knows most customers came to gawk at the freaks.
