Product Description

From the producers of THE GRUDGE Franchise comes this terrifying new thriller starring Lucy Liu! Sadie (Liu) is an investigative reporter who stumbles upon a dark underground cult that is attracting young Los Angeles hipsters. Lured in by the promise of wild parties, these kids start turning up dead, and when Sadie tries to get to the bottom of their gruesome murders, she becomes a victim herself. She awakens in the morgue, neither dead nor alive, a vampire, consumed by an overwhelming craving for blood. Trying desperately to fight off her thirst, Sadie prowls the dark city streets, armed with a crossbow and hell-bent on slaying the twisted vampires that made her this way. Detective Rawlins (Chiklis) is sick with rage and grief after his only daughter becomes another victim of the vampire cult. He crosses paths with Sadie in his investigation, and the two join forces, stopping at nothing until they've exacted their revenge.

Sadie Blake (Lucy Liu) dies and comes backs to life several times in Rise—Blood Hunter, which gives this revenge tale impetus to continue perhaps longer than it needs to. At over two hours long, this film, written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez (Snakes on A Plane), is beautifully filmed and acted at times but drags due to the drawn out story of a LA Weekly reporter who seeks revenge on her murderer, the vampire head of an underground blood-sucking cult. This handsome monster, Bishop (James D'Arcy), charms women, kidnaps them, and slits their throats with his claw-shaped necklace, stumping the entire LAPD minus Clyde Rawline (Michael Chilkis), a hard-drinking policeman who eventually teams up with Blake to hunt and destroy the vampiric ringleader. The scenes depicting initial doses of violence, like when Blake wakes up in a metal casket at the morgue, or when she's originally killed in Bishop's bed, covered in black trash bags to avoid bloodstains, feature crisp film footage awash in blue and red, setting a semi-poetic mood. Mostly, Rise—Blood Hunter operates on the vampire tales' conflation of sex and death, taking a sexy tone throughout, especially when Sadie or her fellow vampire, Collette (Cameron Richardson), feast on blood then strip off their sullied clothing. Blake's vengeance underpins her rebellious attitude, as she shoots her crossbow at each person she meets on the trail to Bishop. Though Rise—Blood Hunter is not a classic in the genre, it is enticing to add Lucy Liu to the list of gorgeous vampire slayers. —Trinie Dalton

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! November 20, 2010

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie is really fun and I'm glad I got it. Lucy Liu is fantastic. I like her in everything she has been in. In this movie she plays a very determined vampire with a score to settle and she does it all with great style. The run of the mill vampire movies can't compete with this one because there are some really funny lines and snyde comments delivered in an understated "I've had it" kind of way by Lucy Liu. I think if you like fun, irony, and a character who won't quit until she has done what she set out to accomplish no matter what gets in her way you will enjoy it as well. I think you should buy it just to see a "new" Lucy Liu, she is a believabley different character in every movie she has been in and I think you will really get a kick out of her in this flick.
