The D in the title card "Blood Hook" rushes at the screen to fill it with blood red color; the title is the only credit that appears in color, dissolving to red as it looms on screen. See more »

BLOOD HOOK starts off ultra-silly, as people disappear thanks to a killer with a nasty fishing lure. It's quite a ridiculous premise, but then you see that it's a Troma release and it all makes sense. Not the plot, mind you...just the company behind it all.
With a ludicrously over-the-top plot with bad acting, dialogue strewn with fish humor, BLOOD HOOK begins in a boring and clumsy manner, manages to become somewhat watchable before quickly fizzling at the end. The killer has a creative, albeit silly, reason for murdering, so some points given there.
This is not an atmospheric horror. It's a comedy with horror trappings. So proceed with caution.
