Percy (Alex Russell) and Veronica (Willa Holland) have been housesitting at a palatial modern spread in the Hollywood Hills for the summer, but the real world of New York, jobs and young professional struggles are merely days away. Nonetheless they are in a hurry to leave this paradise, because the tranquility was broken by an unwanted visit by former college classmate Freedgood (Miguel Gomez). His time since their liberal arts' years has been marked by imprisonment, shady business associations, and drug dealing. And as we learn quickly, this has lead to the man's demise, an interested LAPD detective, and a longing for the everyday strife that seems so much more desirable than staying in their false Eden.
Blood in the Water is a sexy independent thriller starring Willa Holland and Alex Russell as Veronica and Percy, respectively. The young couple in love spend the summer house sitting a beautiful home on Hollywood Hills overlooking the Los Angeles skyline. All is well until their old college friend, Veronica's ex-boyfriend Freedgood, played by Miguel Gomez, shows up and pulls them into his shady drug business. The film had me engaged from beginning to end with the suspense of what was going to happen next, but also with the incredible cinematography. The shots perfectly captured the Los Angeles lifestyle including the skyline in the background in many scenes and highlighting the lavish production design in upscale home they are in. Filmmakers Ben and Orson Cummings really know how to capture the beauty of Hollywood Hills, while still telling a compelling story about about love, greed and deception.
