"Yoma might be nicely-assembled, but its protagonist just falls flat on his face a lot-- both literally and figuratively. "
Anime Jump! (Mike Toole) - 2 1/2 stars (out of 5)

"... it's a shame there's only two episodes, but it still manages to tell a complete story and even include a quite reasonable conclusion."
Anime Meta-Review (Andrew Shelton) - watchable

"Blood Reign seems like a competent entry that fans of feudal Japan and the bloody violent monsters that face ninja and samurai will enjoy. "
Anime on DVD (Chris Beveridge) - C+

"...it's just another ninja anime."
Animetric (Rowena Lim Lei) - 2 1/2 stars (out of 5)

DVD Verdict (Rob Lineberger) - 48 (out of 100)

"...a delightfully eerie movie."
Sequential Tart (Sheena McNeil) - 8 (out of 10)

"...if you need something to pass a dark, rainy evening with and are in the mood for a horror action flick, rent Curse of the Undead Yoma, grab some popcorn, and enjoy. But don't blame me if you don't feel too good in the morning. "
T.H.E.M. Anime Reviews (Carlos Ross) - 3 stars (out of 5)

"Curse of the Undead Yoma will probably just bore all but the most blood-thirsty action fans."
The Anime Critic (Pete Harcoff) - 2 stars (out of 5)

"It bends a few rules and tried to make a horror film out of a samurai epic, but it never really decides which it really is."
The Anime Review (Jason Huff) - C+
