    Reception

    Dennis Harvey of Variety called it "often drolly funny if a tad long-winded ... a witty and unpredictable upending of genre tropes". Bloody Disgusting rated it 3.5/5 stars and wrote, "While the overall relaxed tone sometimes slows the pace, satire and dramatic moments fill any voids." Kurt Halfyard of Twitch Film, in comparing it to contemporary vampire films, wrote that it is more akin to an art-house film that eschews shallow exploitation in favor of occasionally gory metaphor about Romania's history.
