Storyline

Blood Child is horror thriller based on a true story. Bill and Ashely DiAngelo seem to have it all, an overseas posting to Singapore, life in paradise and a new baby on the way. But tragedy strikes when she loses the baby and sinks into a deep depression. Unbeknownst to Bill, Ashley decides that the only way for her to "be" with her miscarried child is to dabble in the South East Asian occult practice of raising her own "ghost child". She seeks the help of her Indonesian maid, Siti, tasking her to find a bomoh (witch doctor) who knows how to trap the spirit of unborn dead fetuses. Siti tries to dissuade Ashley from resorting to such dark magic but to no avail. In the meantime, in an effort to put the tragic events of the miscarriage behind them, Bill decides that it would be good for the couple to return home to Minnesota to start their lives over. Several months after their return to the US, Ashley and Bill are surprised to find themselves pregnant again. However, their happiness is ... Written by Jennifer Phillips

Samething over and over
29 October 2018 | by mikedegrootSee all my reviews

If you're scared of a little girl in a red dress appearing in the background of a boring movie you can try it. It's a really played out rhythm of a horror film. Nothing happens, nothing happens, spooky music, quick jump scare of a girl in a dress, girl disappears, people make excuses for seeing the ghost girl, repeat ad nauseam. The acting and camera work is amateurish at best but work. Honestly though the story is just so repetitive that there's really nothing to enjoy. It's a very cheesy rip off of the movie Malicious which is much better. Everyone constantly yelling at the maid drove me mad. Not worth it.
