Critical reception[edit]

While the film was largely ignored by both the general public and professional critics, what few reviews were published were negative.[8] John DeForte of The Hollywood Reporter called it an "amateurish vampire/musical mashup [that] begs for a wooden stake".[9] Joe Williams of St. Louis Post-Dispatch also gave it a negative review, stating that it was "too squeaky clean" to even find support on "the midnight-movie circuit".[10]
