Blood Widow is an 84 minute horror film released this year. The film does not have any big actors, and is about a young couple who have just bought a home away from the city. Unknown to them, the neighboring property contains the crumbling remains of a boarding school that was closed in the wake of an unspeakable massacre. The sole survivor of that massacre still resides in the ruins of the school, hiding from the world and wanting only to be left alone. When Laurie and Hugh’s friends explore the property, they have no idea that they disturbed an emotionally-broken killer: The Blood Widow. I came across the film at HMV for $19.99, and while I had never heard of it before, I thought the film looked interesting so I decided to buy it.

While watching the film a few days later, I found the film to be very dark, to the point where I couldn’t tell what was going on in a couple of scenes. The characters are not particularly interesting, and the script isn’t fantastic (some of the lines sounded really corny and forced). The film is also fairly slow in the beginning, and once the killing started, the characters didn’t really act how you would think they should in this kind of situation. It’s not that the film is horrible, but it’s very mediocre, with few surprises and no real wow factor. There were a few scenes that I liked, but I was very disappointed with the ending of the film. The blood widow kills someone and then it just ends all of a sudden.

Overall, the film, if I were to describe it in one word, would be meh. About a 5 out of 10 I think. Not worth the $19.99 price at all, so don’t buy this film, and skip watching it, because you can use that 84 minutes to watch a better film!
