Blood Creek


Nazi zombies and haunted houses in fun horror Discuss this article

From Joel Schumacher, the helmsman behind Batman Forever, Phone Booth and The Client, this average horror gore film covers everything from Nazi zombies to the occult and Viking rune stones. It begins in West Virginia in the ’30s, when a German immigrant family take in a lodger. The story then grows to encompass Hitler and the Third Reich, and finishes in the same place in current times, where the house is still haunted by a sense of evil. The plot is at first bewildering, but as the pace picks up about a third of the way in, suddenly the threads become clearer. The film was a victim of zero marketing and a straight-to-DVD release in the States, yet despite technical issues and some serious black holes in the plot, it still has that comforting quality of a horror flick that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
