Blood Creek Movie Review 174

Blood Creek is a 2009 horror movie directed by Joel Schumacher and starring Michael Fassbender, Dominic Purcell and Henry Cavill.

The movie begins with a poor German family living in West Virginia during the war. They are visited by some Nazi guy called Wirth(Fassbender) who is interested in the occult. There is something that he wants in their stable. It is a rune stone and he wants it to use the powers for evil. He is stopped before he can have it and he gives it to the little girl of the family. The family have to trap him at their farm so that he can't escape. Years later and Evan Marshall(Cavill) is living a life filled with misery because his brother,Victor(Purcell) has disappeared when on a camping trip in Town Creek. Suddenly, Victor shows up and tells his brother that he needs to go back to Town Creek to get revenge on some people who just happen to be the German family with the rune stone. They have the evil Nazi trapped on their farm and he wants people to kill and torture.

Evan was captured by the family, but he managed to get away. They head to the farm, equipped with some weapons. They sneak around and confront the family. The family warn the brothers that Wirth is on the loose and the more blood he consumes, the faster his return to the world. The brothers come into contact with Wirth as he stalks the farm and they try to destroy him. The brothers set up a trap to catch him by stringing up Evan. Wirth finds him and he tries to kill him. Victor comes along and between them, they manage to kill the Nazi. They think that it is all over, but the family have aged terribly and they are going to die. They tell the brothers that there are more stones placed around the world and they have to track them down before all hell breaks loose....

I didn't like this film at all. I just couldn't enjoy it very much. I don't know why I disliked it so much, but I would never watch it again.I give it a 3/10.

You can always count on Lincoln Burroughs to be punching somebody in the face.

Jeez this was horribly bad.

Here's how I dissected it.
