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?

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.

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.

I will watch anything with Lance Henrikson in it. And in these dry times for horror fans, I was glad to find this one. Its an overall solid, lo budget flick. Nothing is wrong with it in terms of production values and the acting works. The 2 create chemistry and are believable. Its a creature feature and many of the more recent ones I've seen don't work for me but this one capture the primal and raw energy these types of flicks should have. Plus, the conflict between the 2 protagonists is gradually revealed in flashbacks, which keeps the pace moving along nicely. Not to mention it generates turbulence between the 2 that sustains the atmosphere. Overall, well done and I wish there were more like this.

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.

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, "...one 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.

There's just something about lance henriksen's work for years and years that attracts me..Even enjoyed his television work on series 'Millennium"., which i didn't always GET, but it did provide a different sort of t.v.programing...On a whim, bought this second hand online for rainy day entertainment,when ive read all my books...(yup,it's true..no KINDLE.).
Still luv lance's gravelly,smoke weary voice and that face that carries deep grooves,..but thats about it..Don't believe i finished watching it..Gave up..What the hell is that crap stalking the woods???Why oh why, must movie people throw in those endless flashbacks of a beautiful,mysterious girl, laughing, twirling ,running her perfect face,skinny butt, through fields of flowers???After having viewed thousands of movies in time, this is an immediate turn off.~~~~Of course, we realize early on,she's going to have to pay the price....Ah, well, if your a newbie to film, or very young, u might like this sorta thing, some grisly moments newbies might enjoy and then of course a little sex strewn about,which im not opposed to...but all in all, not for me. It was juvenile...Instead look up some of lances's old work, like in ALIEN;or theres a movie he made years ago where he is part of a marauding bunch of vamps, that is down and dirty, AND thoroughly enjoyable...What was it's name?...darn it...sometimes menopause sucks.
