Critic Reviews for Der Samurai

All Critics (7)

Der Samurai is an unusual little gem of a film that excites with its own offbeat blend of horror, suspense, and visual elegance.

June 6, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

It's so evocative on an instinctive level that its panting excitement overwhelms the sense of questions unanswered, and often unasked.

June 8, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A lucid haze of sex and violence, compellingly offbeat and irrevocably Other.

April 8, 2015 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Neither of the actors is particularly strong and some scenes are clumsily handled but this only contributes to the gutterheart sensibility of a film that is considerably more enjoyable than it ought to be.

February 23, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A queer retelling of the werewolf myth, The Samurai reveals the dark side of a character who comes out in the light of the full moon wearing women's clothing rather than an animal's skin.

Let me just share that this is 1 of the more oddball romances you'll ever witness. Imagine George Romero directing Harold and Maude. As for the finale, which includes a wolf, a full erection, and fireworks cascading from a torso, it's a hoot and a half.
