    It's in The Blood {2012}

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2072134/

    Director: Scooter Downey (& co-writer with Sean Elliot)
    Starring: Lance Henriksen and Sean Elliot

    Scooter Downey & Sean Elliot were best friends since kindergarten. This is their first movie.



    Storyline:

    IT'S IN THE BLOOD is about a father, Russell (Lance Henriksen), and his son, October (Sean Elliot, who co-wrote & co-produced) who're trying to reconnect after not seeing each other for years. A terrible trauma both binds them together and pushes them apart and it's this horrific event in their pasts that they're trying to move beyond. They go out into the wilderness to hunt and try to bond and Russell ends up injuring himself bad (real bad) in what might be one of the worst compound fractures ever put on film. With limited mobility and absolutely no supplies, the two are completely at the mercy of the elements, and just when they thought things couldn't get any worse they realize some kind of creature is stalking them down with the intention of killing them. From the few distant and blurry images we get in the beginning it's obvious this is not your typical woodland predator after them. This thing is big, intelligent, and fierce as hell.


    The film unfolds with the father and son having to come together to survive, all the while trying to figure out what the creature is and what it wants. At the same time, Russell's compound fracture is getting worse (make that, disgusting), and October's recurring nightmares about his past trauma, which includes the girl he loved, Iris (Rose Sirna), start bleeding into his waking state. This is most definitely a "slow burn" flick and director/co-writer Scooter Downey does a great job controlling the material. We get scenes that go from the 'real time' in the film to flashbacks of the horrific event that changed all their lives, to hallucinatory scenes of the creature. In lesser skilled hands, IT'S IN THE BLOOD could've been a muddled mess, but Downey masterfully controls all the various elements like a well-seasoned pro. The film is also shot beautifully, really embracing the dark and the isolation of the situation, and the editing is phenomenal. The dark and isolation become imposing characters themselves as they threaten and consume Russell and October.




    Okay. I want this....NOW!

    It's good to see Henriksen staying busy. Been along time since Pumpkinhead. Interesting pick woodenheart.

    Lance Henriksen's best film since Pumpkinhead IMO. A top 10 contender of the year so far.

    He's just an added plus to an already great looking film.

    First time my knife touched skin
    And the red blood started flowing so quick I just couldn't quit
    Kept stabbing until everything that I seen was red
    The pillow, the blankets, the walls, and even the bed
    One color dominating everything like contemporary art
    Am I the killer or artist with bloody heart?
    Then I curled into a ball in the corner of the room
    Feeling like a creep in the light of the moon

    Never heard of it and what award did it win? A lot of these horrendous movies I get suckered into watching on Netflix say they have won awards too.

    Just watched this, Rented it on YouTube.







    I have it for 48 hours I think, so if anyone wants to view it, go ahead.


    It was a different kind of film. The filmmakers blend a few different genres to make a great outcome.
    It has elements of horror, drama, a psychological thriller, some gore and creatures!
    It has great scenery and Russell {Lance} and his son October {Sean Elliot, who wrote this screenplay} work really good together.
    They are trying to heal a past wound by going on a hiking trip. It seems that memories of this previous devastating event are being externalized in the woods around them. The appearance of demons and ghosts is symbolic of this issue.
    Anyway..I say an 8/10 for this smartly mixed genre film.

    I thought this was a decent survival psychological horror movie. I was surprised how much I ended up liking it. A blend of horror and drama. I found the movie revolving around a father and son trying to survive together in the woods interesting as well as the father teaching his son some things that he never got to teach him when his son was younger. I liked the convos between the two. The rest of the stuff with the female was good too. I liked the bit of blood and gore that it had.

    The only thing that isn't explained was who the girl was. I thought she may have been kidnapped by the father but I heard she may have been adopted which I suppose she probably was.
