    In terms of the narrative the story flows from issue to issue, there are of course a few suspensions of disbelief needed for the story to fully function but these are worth it when you get to see the final payoff. The Bride is shown as a victim turned aggressor and her story reveals that even out of the worse possible situation people can find strength from within. It's a nice message wrapped up in a mixture of gore and barbarism that really cannot be unseen. Read Full Review

    If you're not picking up this title yet, you probably won't, but you'd be missing out. This type of comic rarely catches my interest, but this one most definitely has. It won't change the world, but 'Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight' should certainly be on your buy list. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley Mar 5, 2014

    Even though this particular issue of Grindhouse didn't thrill me like the previous ones, it's still a solid title. I love the energy, the craft, and the love for the genre that de Campi and the rest put into this work and I continue to hope that Dark Horse keeps pumping out the issues because this is some of the most fun I've had reading comics in some time. Every anthology has its weaker moments, but in this case it's still worth your time. I'm definitely coming back next month for Flesh Feast of the Devil Doll! and I hope you will too.

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Mar 5, 2014

    This continues to be an outstanding series with a masterful use of its tone. No book better understands or utilizes a theme like Grindhouse. Some of the endings could be a little better, but that's a simple observation on an otherwise fun comic book. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Mar 5, 2014

    De Campi has a certain relentless talent for shameless violence and gratuitous nudity that commands the page. Her understanding of grindhouse conventions allow her to play with expectations in ways you could never imagine, and she actually elevates her stories to a level the stories that inspired them could never reach. Bride of Blood may not be the best chapter, but it proves she hasnt run out of ways to shock and disgust. Read Full Review
