Storyline

Christian Blake is the story of a solitary young man growing up with his closest friend Steve. Unable to handle Steve's flowering relationship with Lucy, Christian becomes obsessed, with tragic consequences. Years later, in a barely functioning mental asylum run by the sadistic Dr Rush and his tormented accomplice Floyd, the journalist Sandra White is allowed a meeting with Christian under the guise of attempting to understand the actions of his past. Her motives are otherwise however and her efforts at personal retribution simply result in awakening the anger dormant inside of him. The results are violent and catastrophic for all involved.

Worst thing to happen in Ireland since the potato famine of 1845-52)
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Under the care of a suspicious doctor, Christian Blake (writer/director Eoin Macken), confined in a mental institution has to deal with the repercussions of his actions taken with his ex-best friend Steve whom he feels betrayed him. We also learn more of the story within flashbacks.

This low budget film started off badly and just rapidly degenerated right before me eyes. The first part of the film is bad but passable (barely) but once the film comes back from the flashback it's mind-blowingly awful. Macken's poor POOR mans' Hannibal Lecter-esquire Christian, illogical plot, & horrid direction all combine into a putrid concoction that is hard to sit through. But truth be told, I'm more saddened that I wasted my Netflix que on this turkey than anything else.

my grade: F

DVD Extras: Music video; photo gallery; Contact details (so send all blame that way); & a trailer for the film
