The New York Times
Venom certainly can't be called a good movie, but within its genre it's perfectly palatable. Full Review
David Hiltbrand
Philadelphia Inquirer
This insipid take on the teens-in-peril formula, with a snake-bit ghoul chasing kids around the bayou, is truly a fangless task. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Reprises all the tedium of slasher flicks. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
This misbegotten horror film deserved to go direct to video. Or cable. Or oblivion. Full Review
Janice Page
Boston Globe
If ridiculous, hackneyed, gratuitously violent slasher movies aren't your thing, don't go near Venom with a 10-foot snake pole. Full Review
