Editorial Reviews

In 1936, the Wollners, a German family living in Town Creek, West Virginia, are contacted by the Third Reich to host a visiting scholar. In need of money, they accept Professor Ricard Wirth into their home, unaware of the Third Reich's practices in the occult or Wirth's real mission, which will keep the family bound for decades to come. Now, in 2007, after mysteriously disappearing two years ago near Town Creek, Evan Marshall's older brother Victor suddenly returns, very much alive and having escaped his captors. Evan asks no questions; at his brother's request, he loads their rifles, packs their boat and follows Victor back to Town Creek on a mission of revenge that will test them in every possible way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not horrible like I expected February 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Joel Schumacher helming a direct to DVD horror film? I was originally intrigued just based on the fact that it seemed like Blood Creek (originally called Town Creek) would be an entertaining train wreck, but instead, the film is a decent enough horror dirge that features some solid acting. Henry Cavill (The Tudors) stars as a paramedic whose long missing soldier brother (Dominic Purcell of Prison Break) returns and seeks his help in exacting revenge on the family he claims have held him captive. The brothers soon discover however that there is more going on with this family then what it seems however, dating back to the days of World War II when a Nazi scholar (Michael Fassbender of Inglourious Basterds) unleashed something dangerous, blood thirsty, and immortal. With disagreements between Schumacher and the film's screenwriter, it's no wonder Blood Creek sat on Lions Gate's shelf for as long as it did. The script is all over the place and often confusing, while a good amount of the film's CGI effects are pretty bad as well. Still, the film is capably directed for the most part, and Purcell and Cavill are surprisingly great in the leads. All in all, Blood Creek isn't quite the train wreck I was expecting, and is worth your time if you have some time to kill.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise! January 23, 2010
Format:DVD
After spending almost an hour at the video store wandering around and not finding anything to rent that looked interesting or that I hadn't already seen I stumbled upon this one. It sounded interesting so I figured I'd take a chance and rent it.

As I put the dvd into the player my expectations were very low and I half expected that I would end up stopping it halfway through and watch something on tv instead. However once the movie started I was immediately intrigued and drawn in. It was actually not half bad, it wouldn't win any Oscars but it was certainly better than a lot of movies I have gone to see in theaters over the years. The story was interesting and original, the acting wasn't too bad, it was well directed and edited with plenty of supernatural horror mixed with fast paced action sequences.

I think this is one of those movies that will appeal to certain people and appeal not at all to certain others. So I can't tell you that you will like this movie and I won't, however if you are like me and you like a little supernatural horror mixed action sequences and zombies, then you might just enjoy this flick. I would recommend renting this movie before you buy, personally however if I had bought this movie without seeing it first I wouldn't have been regretted it. This is one I will add to my dvd collection now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and original. January 19, 2010
Format:DVD
I saw this movie when it first came out into dollar theaters. I went into it not expecting much, but was excited to find it was one of the most original horror movies of 2009. If you are thinking about checking this out, I would say its worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be fooled by medium fans July 12, 2010
Format:DVD
A smart thing to do when reading these reviews about A Movie or CD you think you might like is to look at the persons other reviews and you will see that they would not have been fans in the first place. One of my favorite horror movies people bashed and when I looked at there other reviews one guy reviewed a salad dressing, and another was for A golfball. Not one review was about any other horror movies, so I would not say there opinion matters. I think that this movie was original and well done. If you watch movies like The Notebook and Meet The Parents, then I would expect you to not like these sort of movies anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars DEADLY RUNES March 7, 2010
Format:DVD
Although filmed in Romania, this film is set in Morgan County, WV which is where I have lived for three years which of course sparked my interest.
This is a change of pace for director Joel Schumacher (Phantom of the Opera, Flatliners, Lost Boys)and it's a decent--though often muddled--horror flick. It has a despicable villain played byn INGLORIOUS BASTERD's Michael Fassbender and gallant heroes embodied by PRISON BREAK's Dominic Purcell and THE TUDORS Henry Cavill. It has an original plot and a creepy atmosphere and an open-ended climax screaming for a sequel. Above average horror.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most theatre scary movies February 11, 2010
Format:DVD
This was a great, fast-paced scary movie with an interesting plot. It's a lot better than a lot of theater releases that I've seen in the past couple of months. Dominic Purcell plays his role well and so does Henry Cavill as the brother who watches over his nephews. It had really great special effects and was just overall very well done. Definitely give it a shot, but I have a feeling this will be one of those very underrated awesome movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inventive, original & fresh July 30, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Michael Fassbender and Henry Cavill are as dynamic as always, but put together both make a winning movie. Add Joel Shumaker and you've really got something special. I did have to watch the movie several times to really get a good understanding of what was going on. However, the more I watched it, the more I liked it. This is a different kind of horror. I was trying to figure out what movie I could compare this to, but I was unable to find a movie that would really give a good description for this movie. That's why I give it even more kudos because it is that fresh and filled with originality. A must see for horror fans.

This was an interesting premise. And the casting was good. I had questions about some of the characters' motivations, mostly Henry Cavill's character. Read more

This movie is so awful that even having Henry Cavill star in it cannot redeem it. Don't waste your time or money.
