Storyline

Christian Blake is the story of a solitary young man growing up with his closest friend Steve. Unable to handle Steve's flowering relationship with Lucy, Christian becomes obsessed, with tragic consequences. Years later, in a barely functioning mental asylum run by the sadistic Dr Rush and his tormented accomplice Floyd, the journalist Sandra White is allowed a meeting with Christian under the guise of attempting to understand the actions of his past. Her motives are otherwise however and her efforts at personal retribution simply result in awakening the anger dormant inside of him. The results are violent and catastrophic for all involved.

Dreadful
31 December 2014 | by celticeilidhSee all my reviews

There isn't much good to be said about this film, it's bloody awful. Poorly written, poorly directed with amateurish acting. None of the actors seem well trained in their craft, then again they really don't have much to work with; due to severely under-lit gloomy settings three of the male characters resemble each other and I wasn't sure whether they were cops, bad guys or prison attendants. Time shifts in the story make it really hard to follow with uneventful, lame flashbacks. Unnecessary colour filters over key scenes are annoying & one can only presume that they were added to hide production errors or in an attempt to add some much needed tension. The 'action' scenes consist of attendants from the prison/dungeon running around swearing, and the 'payoffs' are excruciatingly inept. Really, don't bother.
