PRESS

“An intelligent, modern day story of addiction, sexuality, and obsession given a unique vampire twist, Romero's film begins with a typically shocking opening scene that perfectly sets the tone for what is to come...Hugely underrated at the time of its release, Martin has now come to be accepted by many critics and horror fans as Romero's finest work to date.”“

Cultlabs, Blendtoit Lounge Post, UK

 

“I just watched George Romero’s Martin for the first time...All I can say is, wow.  I thought he was sort of a one trick pony with his “Dead” movies, but this really surprised me.  It was a really original look at the vampire mythology, and I thought it was well done.  I saw a lot of commentary on sexuality, religious fervor, family history, and disassociation with the world.  I can’t believe more people haven’t seen this.”“

 “Romero has become a dazzling stylist…his balance of wit and horror is the best since Hitchcock.”Jack Kroll, Newsweek “George Romero has done it again. “Martin,” an eerie, sardonic updating of the traditional vampire legend, should secure Romero’s reputation as a modern master of the horror film. Dynamic, expressionistic, ominously brilliant.”Gary Arnold, The Washington Post “ ‘Martin’ is extremely well acted… Amplas is absolute star material… unrelenting and truly frightening… above all, Martin is funny… a very witty script, and the dialogues have a natural humor that even Hollywood can’t buy these days… there is a long scene in the middle… combing elements of humor, suspense, panic and dread – worthy of Hitchcock, Depalma, anybody."Stephen Saban, SoHo News 

 

“The originality of this film lies in overthrowing the mythology of horror films to make it the symbol of a bad social conscience…Romero is intent on describing the behavior of a young man, misunderstood and desperate in his search for love…John Amplas is altogether marvelous."

Le Monde, Paris 

 

“Romero…achieves an uncanny rapport with his troubled bloodsucker, but from an ironic distance…his vision is funny in its own right. George A. Romero remains an outstanding gothic original, the best of our regional naturals."

Tom Allen, Village Voice
