    Not since "An American Werewolf in London" in 1981 reset the standard for man-to-wolf transformations has anyone tried to get away with special effects as pitiful as the ones in this movie. show more

    Though technically a werewolf movie, the silly Blood and Chocolate is really just a toothless love story about the bad stuff that can happen when two very different people fall in love. show more

    The lead performers certainly are highly attractive, making this one of the more sensual werewolf pictures in quite a while -- and to their credit, they do manage to keep a straight face throughout. But ultimately, the anemic Blood and Chocolate could have benefited from a little less chocolate and a lot more blood. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    A far cry from such sneakily subversive werewolf-sex tales as "The Company of Wolves" (1984) or "Ginver Snaps" (2000), this pallid little picture is all "Lost Boys" (1987) posturing by way of the sublimely ridiculous "Covenant" (2006). show more

    Entertaining in a B-movie sort of way, and you can't help admiring its earnestness about the philosophical issues it invokes. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Horror fans will be disgusted by the lack of gore. Romance fans will be disgusted by the presence of gore. One is tempted to applaud the filmmakers for trying something this daring, but the result isn't good enough to warrant any acclaim, however lukewarm it might be. show more

    As for the script, a wittier director would have spotted the absurd elements and delivered a horror-comedy instead of a straight-faced bore. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    Not as yummy as it sounds, true, but nowhere near as godawful as "Van Helsing," a small mercy but very much appreciated. show more

    Scott Brown Entertainment Weekly

    Werewolves are tame with overuse, and movies like Blood and Chocolate -- where moments of inspiration vie in vain with Goth cliché -- play like underlit "Charmed" reruns. show more

    Never having read the book, I found Blood and Chocolate to be a lovely surprise, an imaginative and visually lush picture firmly rooted in the tradition of gothic romance and elegiac horror films about misunderstood monsters. show more

    So a guy walks into a bar, and yells, "Blood and Chocolate," and everyone in the bar falls over with laughter.

    This movie was so boring that it almost put me to sleep. It wasn't scary at all.

    Blood and Chocolate is a really good movie. It is a little freaky sometime during the movie but.. it gets really good. It's like a big mystery.. and somone on a mission to choose what she wants to do best. Or something like that....that's my review for Blood and Chocolate... this is like the best horrorfilm like.. since ummm Undewrworld...
