Variety (USA)


Stylishly decorated and generating all-important sympathy for a character living precariously in two worlds, director Kentaro Hagiwara's feature debut gets the drama right but is let down by visual effects that are sometimes unconvincing.

The Straights Times (Singapore)


[Director] Kentaro Hagiwara's dark and violent Tokyo Ghoul is more nuanced and layered in its indictment.

South China Morning Post


It is a pity that the director's vision often feels at odds with the film's more commercial obligations.

Japan Times


First-time director Hagiwara resists the sort of wretched excess found in the Parasyte films (particularly the histrionic second part), while keeping the action taut and the tension high.
