DVD review: Bloodlock (2008)
A secret basement room, a solid titanium door, an intricate locking mechanism never meant to be unlocked. An innocent, emotionally wounded wife, her husband in sexual deceit with her sister, an honest, helpful locksmith, an old couple greedy for immortality, an evil entity trapped behind the door. Bloodlock is written by Tom McLaughlin and directed by William Victor Schotten. The acting is bad and even laughably bad in some scenes, one positive thing is that the flick isn´t totally predictable and there is a twist. There is several scenes of both intentional and unintentional comedy due to the acting and the limited budget. The camerawork, editing and soundtrack is decent. There is only one really gory scene in Bloodlock and besides that scene it´s pretty lame, it´s practical make-up fx and it´s looks okay. Several of the potentially gory stuff occur off screen and I don´t like the make-up fx design for the vampires.. The leader is supposed to be a really old vampire but he looks like a overaged teen with a goatee, modern sunglasses and so on. No T & A in this.
This review is based upon the region 1 DVD release from Midnight Releasing.
Rating: 1 out of 7. Bloodlock is pretty bad but there is a few good things in it and I do like the premise.
