Venecia Frenia has a really hanging credit sequence involving collage animations, makes nice use of the town as a setting, and has nice set-pieces.  However usually de la Iglesia veers into too-much-of-a-good-thing territory, and the editorial side in regards to the impact of worldwide tourism is muddled and weirdly inappropriate…” The Kim Newman Web Site

“The premise, which is grounded in actual fact, is de facto fascinating […] Satirically, Veneciafrenia itself may trigger additional injury as its audience is seduced by Pablo Rosso’s hanging, swooping renderings of the town’s sunlit canals, its lavishly appointed interiors and its misty alleyways. However the movie’s factor of homage to the town’s glories is diluted by its reliance on drained Venetian tropes.” Screen Daily

“Supposedly we should always establish with Ingrid Garcia-Jonsson however she will not be a personality that conquers us or serves as a pacesetter […] The movie is watchable, however there’s nothing particular in my view. Even so, on a proper and aesthetic stage, De La Iglesia by no means fails.” Terror Weekend [translated from Spanish]

” …fast-paced, in yer face and wildly vibrant function, that makes full use of the setting. The byways of Venice have hardly ever seemed extra lovely, with gentle reflections from rippling water dappling the traditional buildings in a shimmering lattice of shadowplay. It’s fully excessive, campy as hell however with sufficient of a vicious edge to appease the gorehound in me…” Wraith Ape
