Blood Punch (Midnight Releasing DVD) - The Ground Hog Day of Horror

Blood Punch sounds like some generic action movie with a bunch of has-been stars that has a formulaic plot, is probably rated PG-13 to catch a bigger audience and is well worth ignoring… but that’s exactly what Blood Punch isn’t. In fact Blood Punch is competing to be on my list for top ten movies of the year with a great cast, unique concept and a walloping amount of clever violence. Midnight Releasing has struck gold with this one, and I hope that more people get the chance to appreciate it.

From the first moments of the movie you get the feeling like you’ve seen this movie before. You almost prepare to be let down. Yeah, let’s go to the cabin in the woods and cook some drugs to get rich. What could go wrong? You expect a slasher. You expect an explosion or you expect a monster. What you get is a strange version of Ground Hog Day that allows for a continuous loop of fantastic kills and violence with clever plot and character development. Once I realized that formula had been thrown out the window I was able to fully immerse myself in the movie, enjoying moments of comedy and tension while trying to anticipate the movie’s direction.

Blood Punch is an engaging Horror picture with a strong climax and lovable characters. The lead is from Deathgasm which is assuredly hitting my top ten releases of 2015 list. This fella is someone to watch. He really knows how to make you empathize with  him while watching him kick ass. I strongly recommend this sleeper hit that is flying under everyone’s radar and deserves your eyes.

From Midnight Releasing:

Milton (Cawthorne, Deathgasm), a brilliant chemistry student breaks out of court-mandated drug rehab with a mysterious bad girl, Skyler (Tennet, "When We Go to War"). Looking to recruit a cook for a one-day drug score, she lures him to an isolated cabin with her psychotic and trigger-happy boyfriend Russell (Boyland, "Shortland Street").

Russell reveals that he plans to murder Milton as soon as he is finished cooking the drugs, and their simple love triangle quickly descends into a mind-blowing supernatural cycle of carnage and mayhem with no end...and no escape.

The DVD release of Blood Punch will exclusively include deleted scenes, outtakes and test footage.
