The reviews have been coming in thick and fast over the past week or two for our definitive edition of Santa Sangre and they have been nothing short of outstanding. Slant Magazine’s 4.5 star rave calls it “gorgeous, nightmarish, ethereal, and utterly insane,” Twitch labels it “unlike anything that had ever been seen before,” Boston’s Edge Magazine “a phantasmagoric psychosexual freak show” while Dennis Dermody of Paper Magazine calls it a “wonderfully insane film” and Harry Knowles of Aint It Cool News proclaims it “an unbelievable treat…for Cinephiles, there’s no possibility of not picking this up. It’s just a blessing to get.”

The accolades for the disc itself are unanimous too with The Digital Bits saying it’s “a wonderful release and an early frontrunner as one of the ten best discs of 2011,” DVD Savant gives kudos to Severin for “the adventurous¬†label’s most accomplished release to date,” while DVD Verdict claims “it’s the kind of release that showcases what DVD is all about.”

Disc Dish calls it “outstanding!” Rock! Shock! Pop! calls it “Amazing!” Fangoria “remarkable and complete” and Cinema Suicide says it’s “the final word on the title.”
