Cheerfully gross, deliberately retro horror picture pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the kind of genre movies Charles Band and Roger Corman's companies turned out in the 1980s.
60
Harks back to the drive-in classics of yesteryear with unapologetic nostalgia and undisguised affection.

Variety
Indie effort evidences more energy than wit, and spends too much time on set-up before a slam-bang pay-off.

If you can wait until near the end, you're in for some fun. But after an hour-plus, it's a pretty long wait.

L.A. Weekly
This low-budget horror comedy arrives via a lively trailer and a witty print ad, yet the film itself never quite takes off.

Matthews is supposed to be the star here, but it's Englund's hilarious, over-the-top performance that keeps Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, by director Jon Knautz, from becoming another forgettable exercise in horror.
20
As a horror-comedy, it boldly declines to scare or amuse.
