In October 2005, five young people were kidnapped in the Highlands of Scotland. Stripped and abandoned in the the wilderness, they were forced into a deadly game where the hunters became the hunted. Their ordeal was filmed by an extreme animal rights group as a warning to others: if you hunt... you're fair game. Combining dramatic reconstruction and compelling interviews with the survivors, BLOODED finally tells the full story behind one of the most extreme internet virals of modern times. Written by
Extremism, anywhere in the world, it's all about shouting louder than everyone else until you get to the point where everyone's shouting so loudly on all sides of the debate that the issue, what they're shouting about, is no longer as important as the fact that they're shouting and that's when the focus is lost and that's where people get hurt.

This is one of the most boring films I have ever seen. Although marketed as based on a true story it is obvious that it's totally fictional. Apparently this film was supposed to invigorate debate about fox hunting. It has failed to do this as the debate is about the storyline. Has this happened? Would it happen? The answer to both is no. The anti's are accused of dumping dead foxes on the porches of the hunt fraternity. The truth is that the hunt have done this to anti-hunt campaigners. A search on YouTube will bring up numerous videos of the hunt physically and verbally assaulting anti-hunt campaigners. Women are their favourite target. Animal rights is not about torturing humans to save animals. Had the film been unbiased then the anti's would not have been masked the whole time. Information about them would have depicted them as compassionate people and their beliefs about why the hunting act should not be repealed should have been explained.
The film is pro hunt propaganda. You'd be better off watching A Minority Pastime
