Blood Creek (2009)


Director: Joel Schumacher

Writer: David Kajganich (Screenplay)

Starring: Henry Cavill, Dominic Purcell, Emma Booth, Michael Fassbender


Plot: When two reunited Brothers Evan (Cavill) and Victor (Purcell) seek revenge on the family that kept Victor captive. By doing this they uncover an occult and unleash a beast that dates back to the third Reich.


Verdict: occult thrills and blood spills

Story: Getting involved with the occult can open a lot of doors in horror and leave plenty of doors open for twist. This story does not use these chances very well and stays to a very linear storyline going nowhere fast. All the Third Reich beliefs give a good base for anything in horror as we all know about Hitler’s obsession with it. My biggest problem with the story is that two guys end a curse that has last over half a century in one night. (3/10)


Actor Review: Henry Cavill – Evan the brother who has been searching for the other brother for him in the missing years. Ok performance from Henry but he must be counting his lucky stars that Man of Steel came along because this won’t get him any positive reviews. (4/10)


Actor Review: Dominic Purcell – The missing brother who turns up and wants revenge on the family who held him hostage. Shows some leadership potential in the performance but not enough to control the situation and continues his slide to straight to DVD films since prison Break finished. (5/10)

Actor Review: Emma Booth – Girl on the farm who reveals the secrets of the occult activate on the farm. Makes little impact with this performance not offering anything that you will remember. (3/10)


Actor Review: Michael Fassbender – I think he is the demon but can’t be sure. If it is luckily you don’t see his face and don’t recognise him. (3/10)


Director Review: Joel Schumacher – This guy used to make good films right? Well he continues his slip off the face of the industry with this film that makes Batman & Robin look like the best in the series. (2/10)


Horror: No scares, only gets the two for the occult stuff. (2/10)

Thriller: no suspense created at all. (2/10)

Special Effects: few bits of cleverly placed blood and some good creation on the demon. (5/10)

Believability: One for you to decide how much you believe in The Third Riech. (5/10)

Chances of Tears: No (0/10)

Settings: Has a good horror setting with the isolation but fails to use it. (6/10)
Oscar Chances
: None

Chances of Sequel: Sadly yes but hopefully will get a better script.

Suggestion: Sometimes it is good to see where bigger names started off and this would be a good film to show how far Cavill and Fassbender have come in a couple of years. I wouldn’t suggest this to any of my film fan friends. (Avoid)


Worst Part: The Plot


Overall: Terrible occult film
