Accommodating low-budget Canadian chiller.
4 March 2011 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A mass-slaughter of cannibal gypsies is ordered in 19th century Scotland. In the interim of these executions, a toddler from the clan is saved by an arbiter and rushed to safety with his family to the United States. In the passing of years, the child grows into a lovely and well-mannered girl, and while she is adored by her surrogate father, his wife fears the potential for evil in her bloodline. When two local children are found murdered with their hearts removed, suspicions are roused and the girl is plagued by nightmares involving a Stonehenge-type sanctorium.

This modest Canadian effort is surprisingly well devised and out-of-the-ordinary, with a sharp eye for detail applied to its Edwardian-period setting. The film does occasionally exhibit the venial malnourishment of a bread-and-water budget, but dexterous equipage in various facets of the production make BLOOD CLAN appear substantially more "big league" than it is.

Terse direction, winning performances...this is a neglected film which should have generated quite a bit more enthusiasm. It might not be the most easily attainable horror title, but it's one worth looking for.

6.5/10
