Basically this lil preview/short film was a way to entice people for the upcoming series. And what's the best way to do that? To be just as bloody as the movie. And I do have to admit, it was pretty damn violent. And there was, I think, a boob shot or two. Ya can't beat boobs and blood.
But where the movie succeeds in violence, it pretty much falls flat in everything else. Honestly I was pretty bored by this lil short. If there wasn't any violence on screen (thankfully there was a lot), I was just kinda nit-picking at everything else. The acting, the casting, the writing it's all damn mediocre. One thing I seriously dislike in flicks these days is awful casting, which basically is just a bunch of pretty faces given the green light. Which was almost the case with this. Thank God for the fat nerd computer guy....hahaa.
But the biggest problem lies with the direction and editing. Now that was not up to snuff. The editing especially was this ultra fast stuff that's just a cheap way to entice scares. Scares by cheap editing is the norm these days, and it drives me crazy, but it seems most people are fine with it.
This flick was alright only because of the high amount of gore. But besides that, it was plagued by a number of problemos. But I'm sure it'll have a bigger following than the Blade series. And hey, if it keeps up the boobs and blood ratio, I think I may watch the series as well.
