A lot of blood and everything is strange
30 April 2015 | by quincytheodoreSee all my reviews

It should be a telling that a scientist working on a cure for every disease imaginable with a slab or gurgling meat on his garage might not be the sanest person. Strange Blood is a movie of a mad scientist getting madder due to the effect of his experiment. It's agonizingly slow, and with heavy focus on just a couple of characters, the actors and script are nowhere near convincing enough to carry the movie, despite there's a good attempt on the male lead.

Henry (Robert Brettenaugh) wants to develop a cure for everything. He hires Gemma (Alexandra Bard) to help him in this endeavor. Needless to say things go terribly wrong. The movie is almost entirely shot with these two. Robert Brettenaugh tries his best, and at some points his transformation does look decent, but the shallow script and thin material force him to recycle the same theme with repetitive scenes too many times.

Alexandra Bard is not that particularly good. Her character is supposed to be a brilliant young woman with dark past, thought her portrayal of the nerdy girl is plastic at best. She uses plenty of profanity and it doesn't make the character edgy, just annoying. Furthermore, it's nigh implausible that experiment of plague proportion would remain a secret, at some points the character, especially Gemma must have realized something is wrong, but she is still a willing participant. This just contradicts the brilliant part of her character.

The movie utilizes a lot of nasty scenes, some vomits and other unpleasantly visual effect. This is not eerie in the thrilling sense, it's just like the science experiment that went wrong in high school and you're forced to clean it. Its simple premise just drags on with confusing switch between found footage and a lot needless mumblings. The use of scientific words is not impressive, it sounds rather pretentious to buffer the movie but talking to a gasping meat isn't exactly engaging.

Strange Blood has little thrill and the relationships between characters, among others, are very unconvincing. There's a lot of gross stuffs and scientific mumbo jumbo with barely any common sense.
