Editorial Reviews

Will is a laid-back college student who enjoys a quiet lifestyle with his small group of friends. Unfortunately for Will, everything he knows is about to change when he is bitten by a vampire seductress - part of clan that has been living near the campus and searching for fresh blood. The coven leader, Julian (Tony Todd) has been looking to pass his throne to a worthy successor. In order to pass his coveted title, one of the vampires in his coven must fight and kill a sentry - a member of an elite order of vampire hunters. As the legend holds, sentries have fought vampires for millennia, protecting the world and maintaining a necessary balance between good and evil. But the destiny of vampires and sentries alike are forever changed when Will becomes the center of this eternal war.

The Thirst: Blood War (Tom Shell, 2008)

I've seen a whole lot of bad horror movies over the years. I've become something of a connoisseur, in fact. I think I've seen every way in which a horror movie can be made bad. And the one that gets my goat the most is when someone takes an original, interesting approach to a genre that's been bled dry and botches the execution completely. Such is the case with The Thirst: Blood War, a movie made by a Troma veteran that tries for seriousness and fails utterly.

Will (Krav Maga champion A. J. Draven) is the token hippie on his college campus, the 98-pound weakling who gets kicked around by brainless jocks like Darren (Blood Deep's Cameron Diver), mostly because Darren has the hots for Jayne (Alone in the Dark II's Allison Lange), Will's best friend. Despite some warnings that Will may not be as weak as he appears, Darren keeps escalating until the two of them get into a major confrontation--during which we learn that Darren is only the tip of a much, much larger iceberg.

All of the good things about this movie come from a script by first-time screenwriter Ramesh Thadani. Where it would be easy to fall into the obvious good guy-bad guy trap, Thadani mixes it up, never really letting us know who's who here, aside from the fact that Will is (probably) the good guy, at least at the beginning. There's a lot to think about here in that regard. The script suffers in other ways, most notably in the character development arena (though with the rest of the script so well thought out, one wonders if there wasn't character development that got left on the cutting room floor), but in general it's the strongest part of the movie.

Format:DVD
Despite the film being an obvious low-budget effort, I had to check it out because of the cast involved. Tony Todd is one of my all time favorites from classic horror films such as "Candyman" and "Wishmaster" and the highly underrated Jason Connery plays a villain so I thought I would check this out. The scenes involving these two as the lead vampire characters are actually fairly well done and the dialogue is fairly believable and tense. However, the film suffers from the sub-par performance from AJ Draven as the film's central character and the teenage subplot just drags on too long. More time should have been spent on the vampires and their plot.

Anyway, I enjoyed the film for what it was. Don't expect big thrills and excitement. Just anticipate Todd and Connery chewing up the scenery as two vamps who want to control the world. The DVD comes with a behind the scenes special and a decent cover design.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be named HOOVER May 31, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie should be named after a vacuum cleaner, because it sure sucks like one. This movie had nothing going for it. Horrible acting, no special effects at all. Just a little fake blood thrown about. In one scene, you could see the stake go between the actors arm and body. If you want to see this movie, download it like me, and you won't be out any money, just about an 1:36 min. of your precious time, if you can even make it that long.
