Critic Reviews for Trapped Ashes

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

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

August 31, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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

August 31, 2007 | Full Review…

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.

August 30, 2007 | Rating: 2/4

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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Trapped Ashes

Boring, Bad Acting, Poorly Filmed, this film just isn't that great. There's not one thing that caught my attention, not one. I didn't really like this film, and thought some parts were just..too..."fake." Skip it!

Woa. Talk about some twisted crap. A handful of interesting ideas, but also several scenes which had me wanting to puke (an uncommon thing for me). I guess some people enjoy movies with vampire breasts and molesting tape worms...but not this guy.
