Moria hates the director but says he "manages to do a halfway reasonable job of making [this film] work". Dread Central says it's worth watching but that "The script in this one (which was rewritten by Schumacher) cripples what would otherwise be an effective, nasty little horror film." DVD Talk has a negative review, saying, "Not a complete wash-out, "Blood Creek" has a few motivated moments of viciousness". Quiet Earth says,
It's all very silly to be sure, but Michael Fassbender, Dominic Purcell and Henry Cavill elevate this small, locked-in-a-farmhouse vampire yarn with some great performances, while Joel "nipple suit" Schumacher is actually in fine form, delivering what is probably his tightest direction since Tigerland. The film is also surprisingly cinematic. ... Unfortunately David Kajganich's script killed the rating on this one.Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 33%.
