It's great to see the return of Hellman, even if this film's pathetic theatrical release and dismal reception make it unlikely we'll see much more of him anytime soon.

As is usually the case with these things, Trapped Ashes is a mixed bag - but worth a look for genre fans.

Any film that let's Ken Russell direct an episode about killer breasts deserves some kind of credit, almost regardless of the results.

Ultimately, I'd recommend this film for fans of anthology horror films, but it's far from a classic.

Dennis Bartok writes this lackluster anthology of four juvenile horror stories dripping with sexual dread and goofball gore.

Gross-out comedy about male discomfort with female sexuality dominates this horror anthology scripted by Dennis Bartok.
Peter Sobczynski

An enormously disappointing waste of time and talent that even the most forgiving of genre buffs will find almost impossible to sit through without squirming in their seats out of sheer boredom.

With its gore-comix sensibility and self-conscious flashes of nudity, Trapped Ashes clunks along, and (to be completely petty) never really overcomes its clunky title.
| Original Score: 2/4

A horrible mess of horror movie cliches...

Pairing cult directors with macabre omnibus material is always a tasty proposition, but the results disappoint in Trapped Ashes, a quartet of mildly sexed-up, unscary horror tales with a unifying wraparound story.

Only fitfully entertaining.
