Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Smartly directed by Jim Gillespie from a script by various hands, Venom is from Dimension Films and follows its stylish, energetic and darkly amusing horror movie tradition.

    Variety Justin Chang

    Acquits itself well enough. Gratuitously gory and derivative to the core, Venom manages to deliver some effective frights in between large swaths of voodoo gibberish.

    The New York Times Anita Gates

    Venom certainly can't be called a good movie, but within its genre it's perfectly palatable.
