Critic Reviews for Books of Blood

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (15)

  • With a certain kind of horror, a laugh's as good as a scream, and "Books of Blood" delivers plenty of the former.

    Top Critic
  • Beyond fleeting moments of graphic violence and nudity, the knife's edge here is actually quite dull.

    Katie Rife

    Top Critic
  • The greatest sin here is that Books of Blood is too generic to be remembered, despite bearing the name of someone who redefined the genre.

    October 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The main problem is there's a whole lot of scary out there this time of year, and Books of Blood winds up in a sort-of creative no-man's land. Even for undemanding souls, this is a pretty skeletal construct.

  • Blood, gore, suicide in Clive Barker horror stories.

    October 19, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The actors do the best they can, particularly Friel and Robertson, but none of the stories are particularly involving.
