Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...The cast and the running crew both do a terrific job of steering the audience through the various dimly lit spaces, and Amanda Vander Byl's costumes give a goth-punk edge to Bathory's servants (or are they themselves demons?). It's a dark amuse-bouche for your Halloween season."

"...If you're looking for thrills and chills this Halloween season, or for a theatre experience outside the norm, Bloody Bathory is the perfect choice to lose yourself in a mysterious and haunting world outside our own."

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended

"...For whatever quibbles Iíve raised about the story or the staging, I cannot deny that this show was fun. It is positively dripping in atmosphere. It has all of the dark, alluring energy of a Gothic horror novel and is just as enjoyable to slip into. The actors are very talented and giving it their all, and the cumulative effect is heady to say the least. This is the perfect group activity now that Halloween is almost here."

Kevin Curran - Highly Recommended

"...Bloody Bathory provides a fun alternative for families and couples to dive into for the Halloween season. The freedom it provides for the audience can suit everyone. The young can enjoy the thrill of running behind some characters while the older can walk in stride and nitpick which character they rather follow. The characters may be forgettable along with the plot, but Bloody Bathory will leave you with an unforgettable experience."
