Editorial Reviews

Faulty genetic cloning results in an army of flesh-eating monsters. A raw and bloodthirsty combination of "Night Of The Living Dead," "Scanners" and "Blair Witch Project" from Florida auteur Georg Koszulinski.

Customer Reviews

There is also some fantastic acting.
F. B. Tamm
As is so often the case with "no budget" films, the film makers had some good ideas, but not enough money to pull them off.

One reveiwer was in it, and one knows one of the people in it.

Format: DVD
Not to be confused with 1958's Night of the Blood Beast, Blood of the Beast is a low-budget, independent horror film that dares to be different. The result, in my opinion, is an artistic mish-mash that proves tedious in its over-pursuit of the avant-garde. Not content to develop a unifying vision for the whole, director Georg Koszulinski employs different visual techniques as the movie evolves. I just think he tried too hard, and the resulting lack of consistency diminishes the viewing experience.

The 67-minute film opens up with about ten minutes of stock footage from the two World Wars as the narrator brings us up to speed on the Third World War and the devastating impact it had on humanity. With chemical weapons unleashed by both sides, the resulting draw reduced the globe's human population by a cool three billion souls and left 98% of Earth's surviving males sterile. In order to propagate the species, scientists turned to cloning and seemed to enjoy remarkable success with their efforts. Until, that is, the first strands reached the age of nineteen and a little flaw in their genetic code began turning them into, for lack of a better word, zombies. The film basically centers on two different groups of people. First, we have a trio of teenagers who were out hiking when the first strand mutation kicked in; they don't understand why a stranger ran up and sank his teeth into one guy's arm until they manage to be rescued by some of their friends. This whole group of people ends up running for their lives as the night closes in. On the flip side, we have a father and teenaged daughter holed up in a farmhouse with the Reverend, who has plenty to say on the subject of the unnatural clones and the apocalyptic scenario their creation has now wrought.

Wow. Three previous reviews... all 5 stars. Hmmm. One reveiwer was in it, and one knows one of the people in it. Can't blame them for wanting the best, but....

Well, it isn't quite that good. Now it's no where near as bad as some of the indie zombie flicks that have come out lately, but we have a long way to go before we hit "great" territory.

It's a nice premise, a cautionary tale about cloning and religion and war. But even allowing for the lack of budget and experience in the cast and crew, there are a few things which really hampered my enjoyment of the film.

First, there is more stock footage used here (mostly of war) then in any movie outside of Ed Wood's collection. The movie is only a little over an hour long, and literally a good quarter of that is stock footage.

Then there are the action scenes. Especially for the first 2/3's of the film, whenever someone is attacked by one of the zombie/clones, the footage rapidly (and I do mean rapidly) jumps between different shots. The cuts are so jarring that it is nearly impossible to get a sense of what is happening. Afterwards, the characters will say something like "Stevie was dragged into the woods!" Well I'm glad they told me that, because I sure didn't see it. Maybe it was done because it's very hard to make a fight scene look realistic, and this effect would cover it up. Or maybe they just thought it looked cool. I didn't.

Finally, with about 15 minutes left, the movie switches to a silent movie format. No dialogue, just people occasionally mouthing words while caption cards appear and distorted music plays. Why? I don't know. It's a seemingly random ploy that comes out of nowhere.

But at least this movie ... tries.

One of the worst zombie films made. As is so often the case with "no budget" films, the film makers had some good ideas, but not enough money to pull them off. Might be real instructive for aspiring film makers. I did not hate it, but don't predict you won't.
