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'...
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.

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.

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.

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.
