      Blood Reviews

      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

      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.

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

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

      [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.

      Solid vampire tale.

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

      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.

      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

      Ultimately, with a gripping performance from Michelle Monaghan and woefully intense themes of addiction and chronic illness, Blood painfully illustrates the fact that even when it feels impossible, we have to heal ourselves before we can help anyone else.

      What awful extent would a mother go to save her precious son from dying? Blood answers this question in a heartbreaking and disturbing scenario that grips with unease. Michelle Monaghan is sublime in one of her best performances.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 26, 2023

      Solid performances and some strong, occasionally unpleasant content make this an involving if not entirely satisfying watch.

      Aside from a moment here and there in the Jamie Lee Curtis canon, I’m hard-pressed to think of another recent horror film that drew a tear and made the emotional connections “Blood” does.
