Bloodsucking Bastards Reviews
Brian James O'Connel's Bloodsucking Bastards is a corporate comedy where the new-hires are also vampires, but remain, for all the occasional big-stake takeovers or explosions of blood, more like metaphors for a certain model of middle management.
I'm forgiving of DIY productions that work without much of a bottom line, but there are some basic film techniques that still need to be considered, and don't cost a dime.
While it's not offensively violent, it's full of sexist jokes. And while many viewers will be able to relate to jabs at bottom-feeding companies, they'll probably wonder how such a lackluster script ever became a movie.
Fans of gory-fied movies will not be disappointed by the crimson geysers to be witnessed late in the movie when the narrative pace finally climbs above "comatose" and the blood bags outnumber the sentences in the screenplay.
While this isn't anywhere near a classic of the comedy-horror genre, it's still a well-written work of splatstick that's more downright engaging than 90% of the "serious" (i.e., mediocre) horrors that have flooded theatres of late.
