A nonsensical but sometimes eerie ghost story
20 June 2019 | by pscamp01See all my reviews

I'm not that familiar with Asian ghost movies so I may not be the most reliable source. A Bloodthirsty Killer, aka A Devilish Homicide, aka A Devilish Murder is the story of a family of who are being terrorized by a vengeful ghost. Why? Well, you can read that in IMDB's plot description but as the reason is not revealed until the last third of the movie that seems like a spoiler to me. The budget of the movie looks like it was pretty low, although the special effects look pretty decent for their time. But the sets are sparsely decorated giving the movie a rather threadbare look. The ghost seems omnipotent, which makes the struggle seem pretty one-sided, but then most of the things she does seem pretty pointless, so overall there is not a lot of suspense in the movie. The movie does have a couple creepy moments. It reminded me of the 70s Japanese horror movie House but without the camp. If you're a fan of that movie you should add a couple stars to my rating, but overall I wasn't impressed.
