I'm catching up on all the on demand free movies that are due to expire within a week, which includes Blood Trail, so I've got recent experience of a lot of movies in its peer group to compare it to, and I've gotta say it's distinctly better than the pack. Definitely atmospheric, serious without being pompous, cheesy, or tongue in cheek; manages to get maximum value out of what's clearly zero budget for special effects; characters which seem to have some depth to them. Of course, the genre of the film being "American Indian Supernatural", it requires the Wise Old Indian who knows all about the spirit world, and the young bicultural Indian who has one foot in each world so can link the white guys who make up 99% of the movie with the Wise Old Indian. If nobody's done a thesis yet on the subconscious significance of Native American spirit world, with special attention to curses, in Hollywood movies, it certainly seems like a good topic.
