User Reviews

Bleeders is so nasty that it's sheer grotesqueness keeps you watching.
31 December 1998 | by Magic-7See all my reviews

This is a nasty, nasty horror film. It is visually so repulsive that it is at the same time repellent and attractive. There is no plot to speak of and nothing really surprising happens, but the fascination of the grotesque kept me watching long past the point at which I would have turned off many other films of this caliber.
