Editorial Reviews

One year after a tragic incident tore their family apart; a grieving son and his estranged father embark on a journey into the wild to reconcile their past. When a horrifying accident leaves the father badly injured and strands them in the wild, it is up to the son to save them both. However, this wilderness is not what it seems and as they deteriorate, so too does reality. Horrifying creatures, ghostly apparitions-- are they all in their heads... or could the truth be far more terrible?

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching! February 28, 2013
By Jackie
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Watching this film, it's hard to believe it is a "first" film because of how well it is executed from way the movie was shot, edited, and overall delivered. Moment by moment, it is very well done. The story itself is moving in that it deals with personal demons/trauma and how much people run from the things that hurt them rather than dealing with them head on. I also feel that it is more of a psychological thriller than a horror, but it does have it's moments of scariness. I gave this movie 4 stars instead of 5 though because there is some ambiguity to the story that I as a viewer do not like, but overall it is definitely well worth watching. I also believe this is the first of greater things to come from director Scooter Downey.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable exploration in the horror genre December 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The movie is about a father and son on a hunting trip where they quickly realize they are actually the hunted. The interwoven flashbacks of the family tragedy are well done, and gave this low budget film a much more powerful, polished feel. I enjoyed the acting of Lance Henrikson and newcomer Sean Elliot, who has writing credits as well, as they did a fine job as father and son. The movie is an exploration of how to repair the human mind and thus blurs fantasy and reality, but unfortunately, the conclusion just didn't reconcile it for me. I felt a bit overdosed on the hallucenogenic nature, and at the end, I felt I needed more reality to ground it and bring it home. Overall, I would recommend a watch for its unique approach to the genre and the way it navigates away from B-movie status. But its' ambition to drive home a more powerful message dilutes the scare factor, and leaves the film somewhere in between okay and good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Finely Crafted Horror Film May 24, 2013
Every once in a while, I run across a film that almost defies description. These films are always well made and are so broad in scope that they could fall into one of several categories. They are also so good that a simple review like this one cannot do them justice. I have found one of these rare gems with IT'S IN THE BLOOD, a recent release from Monarch Home Entertainment. Aside from boasting one of my favorite actors in a lead role (Lance Henriksen), this film is vastly entertaining and well worth the watch.

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before, but I'm a big Lance Henriksen fan. I've enjoyed seeing him onscreen ever since I saw ALIENS, way back in 1986. IT'S IN THE BLOOD gives him the opportunity to show just how diverse of an actor he is. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago, and he is truly a great guy to be around.

IT'S IN THE BLOOD is shot very well and the movie itself looks amazing onscreen. The acting is excellent, with both Lance Henriksen and Sean Elliot giving outstanding performances in their roles. The special effects are great too; we even get to see a bit of gore and even the staunchest of gore-hounds should be pleased.

But where this film truly excels is the storyline. Dread Central calls this, " of the finest and most unique independent horror films in recent memory," and they are dead on with that assessment. I am truly impressed with the plot and the writing here. It is chocked full of symbolism and metaphor, but neither is overdone or cliched. The result is a finely crafted horror film that will leave you satisfied on several different levels.

IT'S IN THE BLOOD has garnered several awards and they are all well-deserved. I highly recommend giving this film a look and suggest you do so soon. The film is available now in several formats.

4.0 out of 5 stars BLOOD RITE May 6, 2013
Forgiveness, acceptance and closure are the themes of IT'S IN THE BLOOD, a psychological drama masquerading as a horror movie. The script by Sean Elliott (who also stars) and Scooter Downey (who also directs) is both intriguing and frustrating. Elliott and Lance Henriksen play the estranged son and father who reunite for a hunting expedition ostensibly to patch things up. As the story unfolds, we learn of the tragic event that led to the rift between the two men. An odd blend of fantasy and flashbacks reveal much about each character. The acting is quite good, Henriksen doing his best work in years. Elliott offers a sympathetic performance and Rose Zirna is a striking Iris with Jimmy Gonzales a chilling villain.
The film's conclusion is a little weak in clearly defining what we have just viewed, but I think the viewer can tie up the loose ends to their own satisfaction. Fans expecting a "horror" film will probably be disappointed but fans looking for something different should be pleased.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low budget, but well directed. April 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you read any of my reviews, you know I'm not going to tell you any spoilers. So, here's my take on this film: It's more of a mental issues mixed with a desperate situation. By the time you get to the middle of the movie, you will feel for the son and what he has and is going through. It has a touch of male bonding too, which lends to the storyline nicely. It is not a full on horror movie in the sense of slicing and dicing, it's more like mental horror. Great flick! Worth a watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Work of Visionaries November 14, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's in the Blood was a well executed story crafted by two visionaries relatively new to filmmaking (judging from their credits). They managed to write and produce a story that is more than meets the eye if one cares to look beneath the surface. My opinion is that the film was produced rather well, considering this is an ultra low budget film (at least, I surmise). I was impressed with the overall quality of the film. I felt the "other-wordly" elements did not look or feel b-rate, which is often the case with movies of this genre and budget.

Some of the weaker aspects, and the reasons I withheld a star, are the acting and the script. The acting was not bad, it was sufficient. Of all the actors within the small cast, I felt Lance Henricksen could have given more, especially since he's a veteran actor. I would have liked to have seen a little stronger performances here and there, but to reiterate: the acting was not bad. Then I felt the script was a little weak in places. It felt like a vegetable stew that was missing corn, for example. Sure the stew will taste fine without corn, but corn makes it complete. I thought the film was like that: it was missing an ingredient, and in some cases it had too much of one ingredient. For instance: (and I'm not going to give anything away here) the book is quoted quite a bit throughout, but I think it was overdone. I thought, "Okay, I get it. I understand that X,Y, and Z is possible because of the book." Now, that said, I saw the book in a metaphoric sense as representing something of a spiritual nature; however, I think it was a tad overdone.

Anyway, these are my opinions. Do I suggest you rent or buy the film? YES. I rented and am going to buy it to support these guys because I think they have a future in film.
