Gallo and Dalle are sublimely tragic figures; the scene in which Shane stalks around Notre Dame like Frankenstein unleashed is a pitch-perfect encapsulation of the way the film plays with and deepens movie-monster archetypes.

If you have an appetite for audacious, one-of-a-kind filmmaking, this one's for you. Just don't say you weren't warned.

A haunting and terrifying film. It's also a film of wonderful spaces and silences.
63
A success in some sense, but it's hard to like a film so cold and dead.

Denis's pungent images create a nightmarish mood but don't bring full artistic coherence to her odd mix of gothic horror and postmodern reverie.

The extremely intimate violence is more explicit than is the mainstream norm, and Dalle's mouth is the stuff of nightmares.

As palpable as the atmosphere is, had the film boasted a clearer, more memorable story and performances that were a step above adequate, the creepiness wouldn't have simply lingered with the viewer, it would have gotten under their skin.

Austin Chronicle
Something haunting is going on here, but it's as difficult for the viewers as it is for the characters to sink their teeth into anything truly satisfying.

Entertainment Weekly
A demented, orgiastically gory vampire/sex parable.
25
Maybe there's a metaphor here, but figuring it out wouldn't make Trouble Every Day any better.

New York Daily News
Insipid, self-indulgent bit of art-house macabre.
