I Would Have Preferred A Straight Genre Film
2 March 2014 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

came in to this short BLOOD ON MY NAME knowing nothing about it except that is was supposedly a " musical western " and that's a cross genre you don't see every day . In fact I think I might be correct in saying it's possibly a cross genre you might not see in a lifetime . Singing cowboys ? Whatever next ? Gay cowboys ? Oh hold on ... . Anyway to cut a long story short I expected from the outset we'd be getting a short film where the entire film was told through song rather than dialogue but this isn't how it turned as two desperate and obviously wanted men stagger through an Autumnal woodland

This is the fundamental problem with the film . The first half is contains hints and clues as to who these two men are and of their situation and is dramatic enough to make you forget all about the statement that this is supposed to be a musical western . When Thomas states " Then this is the end " I fully expected the soundtrack to burst in to a sample of the classic song by The Doors most associated with APOCALYPSE NOW but this doesn't happen . Regardless what I did notice was the eldritch screams off camera that instantly reminded me of the infected from 28 DAYS LATER . Who were these " dreads " and why are so feared ? Sadly we never get to find out and when the musical number does finally arrive I found myself wishing that we should have a more straightforward western adventure and you can understand why there's not much of a market for singing cowboys
