DVD review: Blood Brothers (Video 2012)
Michael (Mike Goltz) and Lindsay (Hannah Hitzman) have the perfect marriage, the perfect house, and the perfect life together. Little do they know everything is about to change. After coming home from celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary, the couple receive surprise visitors that will change both of their lives forever. Family ties run deep but, in Michael's case, they run blood deep. Blood will be shed and secrets will be revealed that will keep you guessing until the final shocking moment. Blood Brothers is a short film written by Kevin Sommerfield and directed by Steve Goltz. The acting is actually pretty good, the camerawork and editing is good and the soundtrack is nice. Due to the running time things happen quickly, it has a nice atmosphere and tension. There is gore, practical make-up fx.. I won´t go into any details as that would mean spoilers but the gore is pretty decent but it isn´t a gorefeast. There is no T & A in this.
This review is based upon the DVD-R release from http://www.slasherstudios.com/ .
Rating: 5 out f 7. I enjoyed this. Slasher Studios delivers another good short film, Blood Brothers can be bought from their website (see link above) so go there, order a copy and support independent film.
