    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    A horror spoof that has little reason for being, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead pretty much uses up its quotient of wit with the title. show more

    Ian Buckwalter NPR

    This is a movie so in love with its own supposed cleverness that it never realizes it's not all that clever. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    This loopy farce has the feel of a wacky off-off-Broadway play with more energy than wit, but it has its moments. And the laid-back acting of Hoffman (son of Dustin) just about holds it together. show more

    Joshua Rothkopf Time Out New York

    Like the vampires that cavort throughout it, this horror-comedy doesn’t have much chance of surviving the harsh light of scrutiny--but as a loopy, antiserious lark, it should prove plenty alive on the midnight-movie circuit. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    A horror comedy much closer to the actor-riffing drollery of Edgar Wright and Christopher Guest than "Scary Movie"-style splatstick, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead is one sly slice of the ridiculous. show more

    All of the riffs are twice and thrice removed, but the effect is lively rather than tiresome, largely on the strength of game performances, Sean Lennon's atmospheric score and writer/director Jordan Galland's clear affection for his sources. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    Starts off feeling clever and original but turns silly and diffused as its convoluted story spins out. show more

    Mike Hale The New York Times

    A toothless satire whose targets include vampire mania, low-rent theater, indie romantic comedies, Scorsese, Shakespeare and “Law & Order,” it plays like a Web series expanded to feature length, or an adaptation of one of the Naked Angels’ staged serial soap operas. show more
