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.

One of the most boring films ever made!! Certainly not a thriller. The acting is incredibly poor and the 'churchy' moralising spoils any enjoyment left in the film. The film feels like watching a particularly uninteresting episode of crime watch with all the long, boring mocumentary interviews - I think a story about a old ladies purse being taken by teenagers would be more gripping than this! After watching it I researched where the film came from. It has clearly been 'self-funded' my some trust fund kiddies with more money than skill and seems to have flopped everywhere. They tried a 'viral marketing' campaign to promote the film but Youtube pulled it. They set up fake accounts to promote the film and even spammed movie forums - but no one is interested.
I don't think this film would even hold the attention of the most avid hunter. All I can say to the team that made this is don't give up the day job (or the money from mummy and daddy)!
