"The Lamb's production, first viewed on Friday the 13th, was frankly terrifying at times. This is another of the Lamb's' minimalist, magical collaborations—dark, rich, brooding and beautiful. The company trusts its audience to fill in the gaps, recognize the change of scenes and focus attention solely on the characters, the situation, and the paralyzing fear...But it's Robert Smyth's sharp-eyed direction and his outstanding ensemble that really merit acclaim."

"Lamb's production is pretty intense, frightening all the youngsters as well as adults into fingernail-biting contests."
- ( San Diego Jewish Times )
"This earnest, no-camp adaptation of the novel pits evil against good. The evening's most fun and astonishing event is the initial arrival of Count Dracula."
- ( La Jolla Village News )
"Kerry Meads and Robert Smyth have gone back to the original novel's format fo ra new interpretation of the story."
- ( The Publication )
"A refreshingly low-key reorientation to the roots of vampire literature."
- ( The Southern Cross )
