Star Michael Matthias wants to be Vin Diesel in the worst way. With his pumped-up exterior, shaved head, and unconvincing way with the English language, Matthias is a J.V. screen brute looking for his chance at big time stardom. “The Bleeding” (shot in 2008) won’t turn the hulk into a major action star. In fact, it might kill his leading man career altogether. A slapdash mess of genres with zero storytelling capability, “The Bleeding” looks to coast on red-hot vampire trends. Instead, the film bites, and not in a satisfyingly monstrous manner.
Distraught after losing his brother in Afghanistan, Shaun Black (Michael Matthias) is ready to wage war on the vampire nation over the slaughter of his family. Learning of his lineage as a “slayer,” Black seeks out advice from Father Roy (Michael Madsen), an eccentric priest who also craves an opportunity to end the bloodsucker plague. Armed with blessed weapons and sheer balls, Black searches for the whereabouts of Cain (Vinnie Jones), a vampire leader barricaded inside an abandoned factory that’s been converted into an exclusive nightclub, tempting young women with promises of dance floor ecstasy.
“The Bleeding” was directed by Charlie Picerni and, shockingly, this isn’t his first feature film. In fact, Picerni is a longtime stuntman with an extensive list of acting and directing credits, leaving the general disarray of this picture inexplicable. Picerni exhibits no control over his own film, veering wildly from scene to scene, with waves of nutty exposition crammed into the picture via Black’s chunky voiceover.Read more ›
"From the Producers of RAMBO and RIGHTEOUS KILL". At least those producers got a couple of other movies right but now they have to put this turkey down on their resumes?
"A VAMPIRE-HUNTING ACTION THRILLER...Becomes A Testosterone Pumping Mix of BLADE and THE ROAD WARRIOR". Uh, no. The comparisons to "Blade" are obvious but "Blade" was actually a pretty decent movie. Where do they get "The Road Warrior" comparison? Is it because the hero rumbles around in a muscle car? Who knows! And who cares, because this dog of a movie (that somehow roped actors Michael Madsen and Armand Assante into it) needs to be put down like one of the apocalyptic bad guys from that movie.
This movie is about a musclehead who becomes a vampire hunter (probably because his acting's as wooden as a stake) who has to kill off the leader of a vampire clan headed by his deceased brother. The clan somehow is able to pull hundreds of young nubile women (and a few dudes) out to a rave in the middle of nowheresville. Musclehead is joined by a fallen priest (Madsen) and a couple others (including a UFC Octagon girl, Rachelle Leah, so there's that I guess) in taking down the nightstalkers. Rapper DMX makes an appearance (and, yes, he fits this movie because he's a horrible actor) as well as TV personality Kat Von D. The only reason that I give it two stars are because of some of the pretty ladies (yes, I'm being shallow here).Read more ›

And I was even a featured extra. Not worth $.99. It looks like an instragram movie not even in focus.Published on September 2, 2013 by Julie Dixon stetler
