"Blood Bags" is horror movie with a mostly generic plot despite the intriguing premise. What it lacks in story, it makes it up with style as much as the budget allows: visually, it reminded me both of Italian horror classics and of some John Carpenter's early flicks (very similar, minimalist use of cinemascope). The synth score has some 80s vibe too, even though I can't say what the main inspiration actually was. The title (and the poster) are quite unfortunate choices: the set you up for a splatter fest and what you get is mostly an atmospheric, quasi-gothic flick. There's some gore in there, but not too much. When everything is said and done, this movie is still a step or two above the average indie horror flick: not perfect, not a masterpiece, but you can tell effort, talent and craftsmanship went into it.
A monster stalks the corridors of an abandoned mansion, targeting those curious enough to find themselves inside. Two friends break in and discover that all exits have been sealed off. The creature that hunts them is growing hungry for their blood and there is no escape.
