Not so much a horror film as a tragedy of alienation, Martin presents a man gravely isolated by a repressive family environment, painful shyness and fear of 'sexy stuff'...

"Martin" is pretentious in a way that pornography is when it is dressed up for people who don't want to admit to their taste.
October 7, 2013
A neglected minor masterpiece from cult horror director George A Romero about a disturbed teenager who may or may not be a vampire.

It's rough around the edges (variable acting and flaky FX abound) yet it still intrigues, still disgusts and -- important, this -- still disturbs.

More than just a midnight-movie classic, Martin is inventive, haunting and bitingly smart. Forget the recent Land Of The Dead and see Romero at the top of his terror game.

I Was a Teenage Vampire, rendered by George Romero with breathtaking dolor and tenderness.
March 26, 2009
George A. Romero is still limited by apparently low budgets. But he has inserted some sepia-toned flashback scenes of Martin in Rumania that are extraordinarily evocative.
October 18, 2008
Martin will baffle many fans of the vampire genre, but it's a satisfying treat for horror aficionados nonetheless, and beyond that, it's simply a superb piece of film-making.

Aside from the zombie classics and taken by itself, Martin is also a kind of masterpiece.
January 9, 2008
Romero's finest achievement may have been...[this] 1977 character study about a young, lonely man living in Pittsburgh who may or may not be a vampire.

September 25, 2007
A shocking, thoughtful reworking of the vampire myth set in a dying American steel town.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
September 25, 2007
Gory thriller that makes fun of the vampire myth before the hammer blow of a truly shocking climax.

February 9, 2006
Romero makes stunning use of his Pittsburgh locations to create a desolate suburban wasteland, and at its best it is rivetingly raw-edged.
April 29, 2005
Psicologicamente denso, o filme usa o "vampirismo" do personagem como metáfora das angústias de uma década conturbada, podendo ser "lido" de inúmeras formas diferentes.
| Original Score: 4/5
April 3, 2005
A seriously stark look at the modern vampire.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 5, 2004
Creepy and weird. One of my favorite vampire movies ever.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 28, 2004
A surprisingly tender, ambiguous, and sexy film in which Romero's penchant for social satire is for once restricted to local and modest proportions.
October 16, 2002
One of Romero's more interesting works, but slow
| Original Score: 3/5
October 15, 2002
I kept my eyes open throughout Martin, but it was principally in disbelief.
July 25, 2001
A bit more than another horror film with delusions of social significance.
