Storyline

"The people on the block decided definitely that Jules was crazy when they heard about his composition. There had been suspicions for a long time. He made people shiver with his blank stare. His coarse guttural tongue sounded unnatural in his frail body. The paleness of his skin upset many children. It seemed to hang loose around his flesh. People declared it common knowledge that he was born on a night when the winds uprooted trees..." - Richard Matheson, 1951 Adapted from the 1951 short story by legendary horror and science fiction writer RICHARD MATHESON, BLOOD SON is an unorthodox coming-of-age story of a teenager who, obsessed with vampirism gleaned from literature and ostracized from his family and community, finally finds his identity. Written by Buffalonickel Films

Solid Matheson adaptation!
17 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I am a huge Richard Matheson fan and this short is a very faithful adaptation of his short story that was published in 1951. (Drink My Red Blood) It is both fascinating and terrifying in a really subtle way. I found Jules reaction to seeing his Saviour not funny at all -- I saw it as "Be careful what you wish for" because up until that moment the director does an excellent job at keeping you from knowing if Jules is insane or not. All in all it reminded me of George Romero's "Martin" and left me with a desire to see what happens next. I hate that about short films! "Martin" was a book in the 70's and Blood Son was published in 1951 -- I wonder where Georgie got his inspiration from? Matheson led the way and has inspired everyone from Stephen King to Chris Carter.
