Editorial Reviews

dopo gli eventi trascorsi, gli hamilton hanno deciso di rigare dritto. certo, non sono degli stinchi di santo ma hanno compreso che per evitare guai e' bene andarci piano con le proprie abitudini da macellai. ora la famigliola si e' trasferita in una piccola citta' nel nord: si fanno chiamare i thompson e, sembra impossibile da credere, stanno riuscendo a condurre una vita normale come tanti altri. fino ad un tragico giorno. qualcuno nella comunita' sta infatti compiendo una serie di brutali omicidi: le vittime vengono letteralmente dissanguate fino all'ultima goccia. fra i thompson nasce subito il sospetto che qualcuno di loro abbia tradito il patto, eppure ognuno giura di essere innocente. nel frattempo pero' la carneficina sta aumentando e c'e' il rischio che nella cittadina si inizi a sospettare dei thompson. ma se ci fosse un'altra famiglia di psicopatici a commettere questi crimini?

Format: DVD
Remember the good old days when vampires were clearly evil blood-drinking villains? Contemporary cinematic vampires have mutated into romanticized misunderstood creatures trying to fit in and be accepted by society. Yet, they still kill people, slurp their blood but nowadays it's not their fault. The vampires have become the victims of an unyielding humanity. Of course TWILIGHT, TRUE BLOOD, VAMPIRE DIARIES, etc. have validated this new vampire acceptance philosophy.
THE THOMPSONS continues this trend. A sequel to THE HAMILTONS, writers/directors the Butcher Brothers have created another blood-soaked sexually perverse gorefest. It's unimaginative, derivative and only marginally enjoyable. It employs the standard jerky MTV camera work and uses moderately talented actors. Francis' cliché ridden narrative gets tedious and the movie's open-ended predictable climax screams sequel.
Don't get me wrong---I still enjoy vampire movies (I humbly admit I love TRUE BLOOD!) but I miss the Christopher Lee/Hammer days where we could root for the victims and not the vampires!

I'd never heard two beans about the Butcher Brothers, so I Googled `em. Apparently, they're not real, per se. Rather, they're the "filmmaking alter egos of American film directors Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores." Are their careers that notorious that they'd actually need alter egos? Apparently, they think so. I guess if some parts of THE THOMPSONS are any indication, I can understand the desire to seek anonymity, but it ain't all that bad, fellahs. Why not come out into the light - like you've done with your vampire creatures - and enjoy what luminosity has to offer?

(NOTE: the following review will contain minor spoilers necessary for the discussion of character and plot. If you're the kind of reader who wants an entirely-spoiler-free assessment, then I'd encourage you to read elsewhere or, at least, zip down to the last two paragraphs for my final thoughts. However, if you can live with a few hints about things-to-come, then read on.)

THE HAMILTONS - the earliest film of the Butcher Brothers - was a 2006 horror release exploring the family values of quiet suburban California siblings who just happened to be vampires ... well, that ain't exactly right. See, truth is a bit more elusive: they're vampires, but they're not. They have vampire powers, but they don't. Rather than belabor the creative point, let's just agree that they kinda/sorta act like vampires while having the talents, skills, and abilities of vampires with the exception being all of that `undead' nonsense. These are vampires that are "birthed" and not "created." They're vampires that need to feed on blood to survive, but they're not vampires except for that. (Some legitimately hackneyed writing makes it all a bit more complicated than it need be.

The Thompsons is a sequel to The Hamiltons. Like the earlier film (made 6 years before) it revolves around a family of vampires. It's pretty much the same family, only they've changed their surnames, and moved to England.

It has many of the same actors (Cory Knauf as Francis Hamilton / Thompson, Mackenzie Firgens as Mackenzie Firgens).

What doesn't make sense is the nature of their vampireness. In the first they were fangless blood-drinkers, in this they have fangs.

They also meet a more powerful family of vampires including Riley Stuart (Agent of SHIELD's Elizabeth Henstridge) who decides to betray her own family for love... a well worn plot device.

This English vampire family have some strange ideas regarding 'breeding' with other vampires that makes no sense.

Format: DVD
This production combines grindhouse with "Twilight" style vampires and doesn't do either one well. The film opens up in Ludlow, England as Francis (Cory Knauf) is looking for distant relatives and provides the far too used first person narration. The scene flashes back to the US then takes us back to England for no other reason then to try to look clever.

Francis is a vampire-type person. He and his family are on the lam after going berserk in a desert diner, caught on film. The youngest brother Lenny (Ryan Hartwig) got shot in the chest. Exactly how this family who lived isolated, wanted by the law, dragging along a bloody kid with a shotgun wound to the chest, gets overseas (I don't think they had passports either) is a plot point not mentioned. They are seeking help, as their parents are dead and they don't know how to cope with this genetic vampire issue they lived with their whole life.

The family splits up and Francis goes to Ludlow looking for answers not realizing predators don't like their territory to be overcrowded with rival predators.

The film has its grindhouse moments, but then dies. As a "Twilight" type film, the writing was simply too bad. While I liked the basic plot outline, the details and execution lacked forethought and planning. It appears they slapped something together knowing the public will buy it depending on how they sell it, such as placing "Twilight" and Tarantino's name on the jacket. It is not that good. For what it's worth: Elizabeth Henstridge can act better than frequent Razzy nominee Kristen Stewart.

Parental guidance: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Katarina Gellin, Zoe Grisedale, Elizabeth Henstridge or body double) Three stars is a stretch.
