Storyline

A group of teen-agers vacationing in the tropics take a boat out to a seemingly deserted island. They soon find, however, that the island is inhabited by a wealthy recluse and his staff. While their host is initially hospitable, he quickly reveals his true purpose: to hunt down and kill each of his visitors, as he has done with everyone unlucky enough to set foot on his island. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Johnny Randall: You mean you hunted those people down? Then killed them, and did *that* to them?
Dr. Albert Balleau: Exactly. I hunted them. And shall I tell you why? I'd been a scholar all my life. I was curator of a large museum. And the war began. I who had never killed anything in my life assigned to duty as a sniper - a sharpshooter - because of my steady hand and keen eyesight.
[chuckles]
Dr. Albert Balleau: It amuses me now that I found it distasteful at first. And as time went by I adjusted my new activity. For what had been an unpleasant duty ...

The most BORING game!
14 May 2005 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

"Bloodlust" is another shameless repeating of "The Most Dangerous Game" premise (a groundbreaking classic from 1932), only it's a really dire and uninteresting one. This is a very bad film, but not even in an amusing way. Colorless characters, tedious and overlong speeches and no action at all. Two young couples strand on an island owned by an elderly, supposedly eccentric man. He explains that the military taught him to kill human beings and it quickly turned into an obsession. So, after he did his service, he bought himself an island where accomplices regularly provide him with new hunting-targets. The screenplay is incredibly stupid (for example, the four just politely listen to how they'll get killed instead of try and overmastering him) and the remote-island location is totally neglected. You haven't seen wooden acting until you witness some of the performances here and I was really surprised that the film only lasted 68 minutes... It seemed to take hours! There isn't much to say abut "Bloodlust!", except that you should never consider watching it. Not even when someone holds a loaded gun to your head and threatens to kill you.
