Good effort but dull
21 June 2016 | by TdSmth5See all my reviews

The movie starts with some long narration about a group in the search for the fountain of youth, a search that Elizabeth Bathory was involved in centuries ago. At some point, the secret was discovered: virgin blood and consuming human flesh. The group offers this to its clients in addition to other kinky pleasures. The narrator is the guy in charge, Francis. He is assisted by his daughter.

The current customers include an attractive blonde named Madison. Some annoying guy, and a guy who doesn't say anything and doesn't want to be bothered. The blonde was a model but was attacked by her ex-husband who slashed her and left scars on her chest. Now she wants to be a writer, her first manuscript will be about her experience at the group's mansion, the title: A Blood Story. She takes now the role on of the narrator. Carter is the quiet guy, his wife--the love of his live--died and he can't love anyone else, even though Madison is interested. She also has vision of some creature in bandages.

Madison bathes in blood and her scars disappear. One day she witnesses an argument between Francis and the annoying guy. Francis ends up killing him. He and his daughter seem to be up to something. At that point he catches Madison. She wakes up later in Carter's bed with a an ancient and valuable gold coin in her bra.

She figures there must be more gold in the mansion. She hatches a plan with Carter to get the gold. They recruit some mobster to play another client. But things don't go well and there are a couple of neat twists and surprises.

A Blood Story is a very ambitious low budget horror movie. It's directed with confidence, the writing is strong but in the end, you are basically stuck listening to people talk while the budget didn't allow them to do much, kind of like a soap opera. And they do talk an awful lot. This script must be three times the size of an action blockbuster movie script, if not more. Some of it gets repetitive as when Madison explains all the virtues of blood. The ideas are good and writer/director Hollow did his research no doubt. Casting is iffy. Mindy Robinson is cute and seductive. But the rest of the cast doesn't quite fit the part. A movie about kinks and bathing in blood should be a lot more erotic.

Overall a strong attempt by a competent crew that nevertheless resulted in a dull movie.
