This Month's Awesome Film: Brotherhood of Blood

This month's awesome film isn't awesome at's more like FLAWESOME.

Despite some hard work and good performances (genre veteran Ken Foree is especially entertaining) the film really struggled to keep me interested. Much of the actual horror happened off-screen or in cutaways and the majority of dialogue sequences were under dramatised, over-long and a little daft.

Certainly it picks up a little towards the end with a nice twist or two, but ultimately its complete lack of style and urgency keep a good premise bogged down by mediocrity.

It may act as a decent demo-reel for its rookie directors but I can only really recommend this to Ken Foree fans or vampire completists.
