Anne Curtis is wasted
sean_pak21528 April 2021
Anyone who has followed the prolific career of famous Filipina actress Anne Curtis knows that she has a lot of talent. She has been nominated for more than a dozen of acting awards and has won a few. From small scale dramas and comedies to larger budget action movies and thrillers, from her days as a child actress to her most adult roles, in countless films and series, Curtis has showed off an impressive range and star presence, almost always a charismatic performer. Which makes her performance here all the more disappointing, because she isn't given many lines and isn't called on to do much besides look pretty and intense.

Director Francis dela Torre began his career in the film industry as a cinematographer and camera operator, but he is much less experienced as a writer. This becomes apparent right away. Visually, while not exactly beautiful, it is filled with interesting shot choices and color usage. Dela Torre was a co-director of photography here and the results are decent. The script, on the other hand, also by dela Torre, is a complete mess and not much better than a typical direct-to-video flick. Mediocre pacing, uninteresting and messy plot development, boring characters. The performances are also uniformly mediocre. I'm not really a fan of vampire stories so they have to be especially strong for me to appreciate them. And this is pretty silly even for a vampire movie.

Blood Ransom : This is how Vampire movies should be made
jaysonantipolo3 November 2014
A very dark, gritty and bloody take on the vampire mythos, Blood Ransom is one of my favorite in this genre. It's sexy and very violent, which is how these kinds of movies are supposed to be. In a generation where you only see watered down PG-13 vampire flicks, I this one stands out. The performances are quite good, especially Anne Curtis and Alexander Dreymon. They look so perfect together. There's something between them that makes them so believable as two people with eternal love for each other. I must also say that Anne Curtis is so perfect in this role. Her gaze, as everyone who have seen the movie said, is so stunning and hypnotizing. Caleb Hunt is also terrifying in his role. He is a very antagonist and really pumps up the tension. Director Francis Dela Torre succeeded in all levels in this film despite the budget constraints. I especially love the final shot of the film. Love seeing Crystal walking alone the deserted highway, feeling and enjoying the sun. That image was the best. Two Thumbs up!

Decent special effects but not much more...
balthesaur3 January 2022
Ugh... this one is a bit of a dumpster fire. The story starts off like it's already in progress; there is nothing really explaining why the characters are doing what they are and no prologue. You have to decipher it yourself through the movie. Characters die, but there is no connection to them and their three minute screen time.

The vampires (since they aren't directly referred to as such) have fairly neat special effects to display their urges, but that is the only redeeming quality about this movie.

It's one to skip. Unless you want to regret drudging through 80minutes of your life wondering '...but why, though?'
