Quotes

Russell: I clean up, grab a beer, go sit in the ol' rockin' chair and watch TV. You know, I haven't paid that bill in over a year. All I get is white noise. It's like ants fighting... I sit there every night watching ants fighting until I fall asleep... and in the morning I get up and do it all over again... and that's all there is. I got nothing left... but white noise.

Edgy, Provocative Film
20 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen "It's in the Blood" three times. Each time I've opted to bring friends to various film festivals, I've discovered that this is a film that is actually worth seeing multiple times. One cannot possibly capture the deep thinkings behind this thriller in one viewing. With each session I discover more disturbing elements about the characters and subplots than before.

This is a film that brings all the elements of success together—superb acting (especially by Lance Henriksen and co-star Sean Elliott), an intriguing plot, thrilling special effects and fingernail biting snippets that flash across the screen like a terrible dream that leaves you sitting up and gasping for air in your bed. Elliott, a newcomer, is superb as October, and look for this film to send him skyward. Fans of Henriksen will relish his sometimes gruesome scenes as "classic Lance," the gruff, great icon who has returned to the big screen to the delight of his fans. Rose Sirna, lends a soft side to this disturbing plot, yet manages to evoke intense fear in moviegoers in one standout frightening scene.

Henriksen and his supporting cast work magic with Scooter Downey's screenplay. Downey was the editor, writer, director and producer of It's in the Blood. In short, he is a kid who is living his dream. He's created a true horror film that is achieving enough "Best in Show" film festival awards to land it a spot on US screens ... soon, we hope.
