      Blood Reviews

      What do you call a vampire movie with no teeth? Blood.

      Full Review | Mar 11, 2023

      This often-brutal horror movie is flawed but offers a fascinating and fresh take on the ages-old vampire tale, with a powerful maternal twist and other modern parallels.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Feb 8, 2023

      Once things turn to the more supernatural, then the movie slowly loses its grip as Jess’ life gets out of control.

      Full Review | Feb 8, 2023

      Deeply layered and nuanced, Blood finds the lifeline of horror and harnesses it for an experience that not only satisfies, but has you craving to return for more.

      Full Review | Feb 5, 2023

      Anderson isn’t afraid of, or above, genre. Indeed he delivers ample amounts of the titular substance while still allowing for genuine pathos to shine through.

      Full Review | Feb 4, 2023

      There’s some strong Stephen King energy to “Blood,” a thriller with echoes of “Cujo” and “Pet Sematary.”

      Full Review | Feb 3, 2023

      This adolescent vampire tale goes downhill so fast it turns inadvertently from horror to comedy.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Feb 3, 2023

      Directed by Brad Anderson without a hint of humor or camp, “Blood” is effective enough in its grisly way, but gruesome and unpalatable.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Feb 2, 2023

      The drama is mostly flat, and the true horrors of Owen's condition only manifest when the movie is nearly over.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Feb 1, 2023

      Had that moral ambiguity felt intentional the film would have been at least provocative. The fact that it does not is alarming, but not in a way that makes the film more enjoyable.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Jan 31, 2023

      Blood's biggest flaw is letting us glimpse at a better movie that could have existed with just a little more writing time.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Jan 31, 2023

      Its pieces may not always fit snugly together, but the human drama and eerie chills proves to be an enjoyable mix.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 31, 2023

      [Brad] Anderson’s investing thriller delights in its commentary on self-preservation and self-sacrifice, resulting in a far more intelligent effort than its horror packaging suggests.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 30, 2023

      Solid vampire tale.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jan 29, 2023

      "Blood" delivers plenty of the titular substance but not much else of note other than a couple of decent scenes here and there.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Jan 28, 2023

      Caught between an earnest drama about fractured families and a campy cannibalism saga, this thriller is boosted by solid performances before becoming narratively anemic.

      Full Review | Jan 27, 2023

      Anderson uses a monstrous archetype to explore a tender story of addiction, sacrifice, and motherly love dressed up as the horrifying birth of a young vampire.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Jan 27, 2023

      It's an effective spin on usual genre tropes with Monaghan constantly pushing herself beyond the limits of morality to keep her boy alive. Stick with surface and you should enjoy the ride.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Jan 27, 2023

      Blood utilizes familial trauma to drive a story of vampirism with a unique mythology. While that mythology is murky and stories like this have been told and executed more effectively, the good overall outweighs the bad.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Jan 26, 2023

      Engaging with director Brad Anderson’s Blood on a metaphorical wavelength will yield more satiating results than trying to understand character logic or its mystery elements

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
