Seriously great film
9 July 2014 | by nicolebigbrownSee all my reviews

I harbor a lot of passion for films that break molds and try new things, and BLOOD SOAKED is among an upper echelon of independent horror movies that take no prisoners and show you something you've never seen before, like it or not. In this case, you'll like it.

The plot treks through a relatively easy going first day of college for our rather attractive heroine Piper (played by Heather Wilder). She's going to art school and meets up with a standard issue art school crowd (pretentious, weird, self-absorbed, etc.) including the equally attractive and very lesbian Ashley (played by Rachel Corona). They hang out, go to a party, and Piper ends up cheating on her six-pack of a boyfriend back home and makes out with Ashley in a scene that is both exploitative and sweet at the same time.

Then, all of it goes wonderfully downhill. The new lesbian couple is ambushed by two insane neo-Nazi homophobic zombie breeding sisters, played incredibly well by the large chested Laina Grendle and the not-so-well-endowed-but-equally-easy-on-the-eyes Hayley Derryberry. Derryberry you will recognize from the horrid RABID LOVE from earlier this year, but do yourself a favor and ignore that performance (and film) completely, because this redefines her psycho persona.

Beyond that, I can't say anything more as I will get into an incredible amount of spoilers. But that's one of the things that sets this film apart from the standard issue indie dreck we all have to wade through. It's a brisk 70-something minute journey through hell for the nubile Piper that is a constant barrage of curveball after curveball of plot twists, bold cinematography moves, and seamless set design.

Many special things happen in this movie, I can't go into them all for sake of spoilers, but its main purpose is to have fun. Turn your brain off, crack a beer, enjoy the insane and illogical plot, and experience some camera moves and edits that amplify the off the wall experience. There is never a dull moment, it never takes time to breathe, and has its roots deeply planted in American grindhouse filmmaking. Not the way DEAR GOD NO did, with goofy subtext and stupid in your face delivery of ridiculous element after ridiculous element, but with a subtle seriousness that allows you to enjoy the relationships, get invested in characters, and then have a laugh as they die at the same time. Its akin to the tone of the first EVIL DEAD, where its all delivered without a flinch or a wink to the audience, yet tonally it's a straight up comedy. This kind of mixture of comedic and horrific elements is something that's constantly attempted, but rarely executed this well.

As for the DVD, the extras are worth it and include the original short film BLOOD SOAKED was based on, two commentaries (one of which includes Wilder and Grendle getting drunk), an (again drunk) introduction, and some trailers.

All in all, this is another hit for what may be becoming my favorite company, Wild Eye Releasing. 10 out of 10 stars.
