I kept my eyes open throughout Martin, but it was principally in disbelief.

"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.

I Was a Teenage Vampire, rendered by George Romero with breathtaking dolor and tenderness.
April 3, 2005
A seriously stark look at the modern vampire.
| Original Score: 4/5

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'...
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.

The best Romero movie you've never seen.

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.
August 21, 2008
Aside from the zombie classics and taken by itself, Martin is also a kind of masterpiece.
October 14, 2011
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.
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.
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.
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

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.
