Reviews

Low-budget vampire horror in which two brothers become caught up in a gruesome occult experiment dating back to the Third Reich. When his brother Victor (Dominic Purcell) reappears after two years of being mysteriously missing, paramedic Evan Marshall (Henry Cavill) sets out on a revenge mission that uncovers a devilish experiment set up by evil Nazi historian Richard Wirth (Michael Fassbender) back in the 1930s.

I thought this film was great. I will admit that Joel Schumacher doesn't seem to know what he wanted to make: a zombie movie or a vampire movie; but, nonetheless, he maintains a frenetic pace throughout the film and fills the screen with some pretty gruesome images.
Focusing on the well-used fiction that the Nazi's and Hitler were deeply into the occult before the start of WWII, the film focuses on a Nazi scientist in the 30s named Wirth (Michael Fassbender's of X-Men First Class, 300) search for a mystical runestone that can grant him immortality. Flash forward to modern day and Henry Cavill (The Tudors and the forthcoming Superman) and his brother Domonic Purcell (Prison Break, Blade: Trinity) join forces to stop Wirth from gaining ultimate power.
There are some extremely effective set pieces in this film (most notably the zombie-horse sequences) and everyone involved gives excellent performances.
The film may not be what some people expect; and I think the reason it never got a cinema release could possibly be due to an inability to market it. Part horror, part supernatural thriller, part zombie-part vampire; this is a film that was obviously trying to break the mould of modern-day horror.
Personally, I think it achieved that. It's entertaining. The story is complex enough to keep the viewer's attention and the payoff in blood and guts is satisfying for horror fans.
Give it a try!

Whilst it's only saving grace might have been at least trying to aim above the extremely low standards of modern horror, there are moment that are genuinely commendable in this film. It's starts well enough by setting a semi-authentic tone with the historical interest of the Nazi interest in the occult, but develops the fictional narrative in how a German commander seeks to harness its power to create a race of German super soldiers. Actors like Michael Fassbender, Henry Cavill and Dominic Purcell certainly add a degree of star power and try to bring about some reality to underpin the nonsense going on around them, but some pretty poor CGI and a pretty ridiculous last 20mins render any early promise into the further recesses of the mind.

Overall, the project tries to punch above its weight and certainly cannot be considered a complete waste of time. The angle of the storyline is certainly intriguing (to a point) and the actors try to keep things afloat and, if they hadn't wasted so much time on unnecessary gore and pathetic looking zombie horses (you did read that right), then maybe it would've been worth more of a consideration. Worth a watch, just maybe better on tv as you're unlikely to want to watch it a hundred times...

Not really a 10 out of 10 movie but more on an 8.5 I do really like it though so I had to give it 5 stars on the Amazon rating.
Mixing 2 of my favourite subjects such as World War 2 and Horror this movie really appealed to me when I first came across it and watched it on my phone from a well known video streaming site. I was eager to get it on BD and now I have it I like it even more.

Well worth a viewing if you are a Horror movie fan. If you, like me are into World War 2. Don't expect much on the subject in the movie as it's more of a launch pad for the story but quite a cool concept none the less and a somewhat scary thought if such thing was possible in real life.

MINOR SPOILERS:
Blood Creek by Joel Schumacher (Falling Down, Batman Forever etc) would be a total mess if it weren't for a handful of unusual tweaks.
Starting with a rushed but decent set-up, Nazi occultist Wirth (Fassbender) turns up at a struggling American farm run by German immigrants who are glad of the paycheck the guest brings in each month, but wary of his mysterious interest in ancient runestones. It turns out that his academia hides a dark secret, and we cut to the modern day setting, only for the story to lose its focus. Although it oozes promise by introducing Herny Cavill's lead character with a dramatic scene, the economical script skimps on plot and dialogue. It brings back Purcell (Prison Break & Blade Trinity) as his missing brother with minimal impact and then tries to sweep us up by running headlong into the kind of suspense and horror plot where a bit of foreknowledge lets the director build fear and foreboding in the audience. Instead, we blunder and crash into the situation just like the main characters, and nobody bothers filling in any blanks until a long way in. This kind of technique only works with exceptionally tense direction and committed performances.
In the case of Blood Creek, the performances are just decent and Schumacher is off his game, nowhere near the dripping paranoia and tension of 'Falling Down'.
However, then there's the movie's salvation. When he's unleashed, Wirth isn't just your typical Nazi zombie. In fact he never died at all. Hideous but virtually immortal, he's become a Necromancer capable of raising the dead to do his bidding. This makes for a number of exciting seige scenes where he can send a lethal minion in to wreak havoc while he's kept at bay by the flimsy use of a few breakable runes.
