    Reception

    Mike Everleth of the Underground Film Journal said, "The title Burlesque refers to the alleged occupation of Tammy and Veronica, who claim to be dancers and which would potentially explain their odd garments when they visit Frank. While there’s not much actual burlesque action in the film, Deacon does employ a whole lot of seductive teasing, but just not in the way that may be expected."

    Jeff Ritchie of ScaryMinds gave eight stars (out of ten) calling it, "Burlesque is a surreal nightmare that will have you clambering for more." Added: "Once again Dominic Deacon presents a slice of surrealistic horror that will have you questioning your own terms of reference."

    Severed Cinema's Ray Casta gave four stars (out of five) and said, "Imagination can be a very powerful thing, and Dominic Deacon understands this notion perfectly".
