A Good Low-Budget Contemporary Film-Noir
1 April 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the wife of Detective John Traveller (Peter Coyote) and her lover are executed in bed and John takes the blame, his partner and friend, Detective Matthew Ransom (Michael T. Weiss), becomes very upset, affecting his marriage that was not working well. The lover of John's wife was the son of Luke Williams (Steve Rankin), a detective of the same department, and he does not accept the death of his son. After the trial and conviction of John, Matthew separates from his wife Mary Ramson (Nancy Valen), being sexually arrested by John's daughter Jude (Maureen Flanigan). Meanwhile, a serial killer kills the enemies of John, leaving clues in the crime scenes relatives to Sherlock Holmes tales and Matthew suspects of Jude. "Written in Blood" is a good low-budget contemporary Film-Noir. The story is great, but there is a lack of a previous development of the key elements of the plot, since the characters and their relations are disclosed along the story. This is the great flaw of the screenplay of a movie that deserves to be watched at least once. I would like to know the nationality of this film, which is not indicated in IMDb. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Escrito em Sangue" ("Written in Blood")
