I guess the blood in the bags had already gone stale...
7 December 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

While this 2018 horror movie "Blood Bags" start out quite adequately, it isn't long into the feature before it takes a nosedive and director Emiliano Ranzani never really manages to get the movie back on course.

The movie is set to take place inside an old house with a very limited cast, which means that there is additional pressure on the cast to perform as they are on constantly. Ultimately, the actors and actresses failed to do this, because they were severely limited in terms of what they had to work with in script, plot, storyline and characters.

It should be said that the acting performances were adequate, taking into consideration the limitations imposed upon the actors and actresses. However, you shouldn't go expecting anything grand Shakespearian here.

The storyline itself turned out to be less than mediocre. It went from being sort of interesting to becoming a prolonged suffering in a short time. I did manage to sit through the entire movie, though, but it was an ordeal.

The characters in the movie were flat and flaccid, with very little in terms of background, motivation, drive, and growth. They essentially were written by writers Emiliano Ranzani, Davide Mela and Scarlett Amaris to be cardboard cutouts.

The movie doesn't really make use of a heavy amount of CGI or special effects, nor that it would have mattered much, as it wouldn't have been able to save the movie. The creature stalking the house was just bland once you actually got to see it. While it was skulking around in the shadows, where we just had glimpses of it, seeing its shadow, or seeing it is distant shots, it actually worked out quite well.

All in all, "Blood Bags" is a poor addition to the horror genre, and it offers nothing interesting or nothing new. I am rating it a mere three out of ten stars.
