Incredible slice of micro budget turkey monster lunacy.
23 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched Blood Freak for a second time last night and much like the first was spellbound throughout. Its hard to believe that anyone could conceive of such a film, let alone get it onto screen and the best thing of all is that they're not pulling our legs. Though it seems like a film precisely calibrated to appeal to post milennial lovers of crazed and inept trash cinema, Blood Freak has the air of serious endeavour about it. For not only is it a killer turkey film, but an anti drugs, pro Jesus turkey film, with a main character who looks a bit like a dirty washed up Elvis. Our hero Herschell, played by awesome non actor Steve Hawkes meets sweet Christian gal Angel, and her far out sister Anne. In due course he is persuaded to try some pot, which hooks him instantly, and then he makes the mistake of eating an entire experimental drug tainted turkey. This results in his head turning into one of the greatest special effects of all time and some pleasingly grisly murders, before a ludicrous and slightly annoying ending. In conventional terms this is a real stinker of a film, with technical aspects that slip into the surreal with their comical ineptitude. There are shots out of focus, editing that ensures scenes appear and flit away at random, ridiculous sound design that peaks with the hilarious screams during kill sequences and a fitting droning, slightly wigged out score. The acting is pretty poor across the board, though Dana Culliver and Heather Hughes and both pretty foxy as the sisters and co director Brad Grinter is notable for his cue card philosophical musings and rib tickling unintentional coughing fit. The whole film exerts a bewildering mesmeric grip, occasionally drawing big laughs with its frequently side splitting script. Terms like far out are used to good effect in the early stages, whilst the characters reactions to Herschell in his monstrous form are just genius. Though seekers of quality cinema would be advised to stay away, this film is an unbelievable jaw dropper of a mind bending trip and one that will live on in the heart of any trash addict that seeks it out. It changed my views on cinema and gladdened my heart and only the ending pulls it away from a perfect score. Richly recommended.
