Product Description

In October 2005, five young people were kidnapped in the Highlands of Scotland. Stripped and abandoned in the far corners of the wilderness, they were forced into a deadly game where the hunters became the hunted. Their ordeal was filmed by an extreme animal rights group as a warning to others: if you hunt...you're fair game. Combining dramatic reconstruction and compelling interviews with the survivors, BLOODED finally tells the full story behind one of the most extreme internet virals of modern times. EXTRAS: Commentary by filmmakers; Extended interviews; Making of featurette; Short film - 'Home Video' by Ed Boase.

To my mind, stories of hunting humans have been a horror staple on the screen for as long as there have been movies. The film adaptation of Richard Connell's Hounds of Zaroff, which was turned into The Most Dangerous Game in 1932 could be seen as the granddaddy of them all, spawning numerous imitators from the poor (Steve Austin's The Condemned) to one of my personal favourites, Predator.
With this in mind, my attention was drawn to Blooded, a 2011 British horror film following such a storyline.

The synopsis convinced me to buy it; unfortunately, I found it to be quite misleading.

The intro music was reminiscent of John Carpenter's work and the film opens with some factual information about the legislation surrounding foxhunting and the protests against it, leading the film to pan out in an interview and reconstruction of events format which although brought to mind examples such as Touching the Void was, for me, very stilted and artificial. Moreover, and this is entirely subjective, I felt no compassion for the lead characters whatsoever. Their plight generated no sympathy from within me at all and I don't think many people would feel sorry for them.

The film was beautifully shot in on location on the Isle of Mull in Scotland and utilises some interesting subject matter to create a decent story. However, in my opinion, despite appearances, Blooded is not a horror movie, despite the images shown and a BBFC warning that it "Contains strong threat, scenes of torture, bloody injury detail & language". Blooded is at best, a thriller. There are no real scenes of compelling terror or fear and the gorehounds among you will be sorely disappointed with the total absence of carnage.

I managed to see BLOODED at it's world premiere at the Bradford Film festival (with the writer, director and producer present) and have to say it was a very interesting and original film, beautifully photographed, and with lots of points to make about it's subject matter.

Indeed, the film has already apparently upset a lot of Animal Rights groups for the supposed portrayal of a (fictitious) extreme Animal Rights group called the Real Animal League, but it has to be said that Blooded does not take sides in the debate, instead it presents a possible scenario and asks us, the audience, how we would react in that situation.

The story follows five young people who have gone for a mini-break to the Isle of Mull in 2005 (at the time of the hunting ban) to get away from it all and hunt a stag or two. However, they are soon kidnapped, stripped to their underwear and left out in the far reaches of the desolate island. Not only that, but the balaclava-clad RAL soon starts taking pot shots at them - and the hunters have suddenly become the hunted.

Combining 'real interviews' with 'reconstructed footage' and 'genuine footage from the final RAL viral', BLOODED takes a unique approach to the mockumentary canon and makes it work with sympathetic characters, exciting footage of the hunt sequences, and enough food for thought for both pro and anti hunt campaigners. Definitely worth checking out...

I saw this at the Bradford film festival also. As with the other reviewers I thought it was a really interesting film; a thoughtful exploration of the subject matter and beautifully shot. It is well constructed and the tension mounts to some real nail biting moments of great drama and pyschological suspense. Altogether a powerful and thought provoking film.

"Extremism - anywhere in the world - it all becomes about shouting, louder than anyone else. Until you get to the point that everyone's shouting so loudly on all sides of the debate that the issue ... is no longer as important as the fact that they're shouting. And that's when the focus is lost and that's when people get hurt."

In Ed Boase's independently-made mockumentary, they're shouting about hunting. Frustrated by the police not enforcing the fox hunting ban, an extremist animal rights group kidnap a high-profile fox hunter & 3 of his friends. They then release them into the wild on a remote Scottish island, strip them to their underwear & ruthlessly hunt them. This borderline-credible scenario is given extra realism by documentary-style interviews which pepper the action & instances of shaky camcorder footage taken by the kidnappers.

This fascinating film doesn't preach for one side of the debate or the other - it merely shows what the 'victims' went through on that day & goads the audience into questioning whether anything positive was achieved. This & other thorny moral dilemmas are accompanied by a tense atmosphere & unpredictable story which totally pulled me in & held me there. This film was exactly the right balance of atmosphere, interesting issues, originality, suspense & beautiful cinematography of the Scottish wilderness. Initially, I wondered whether this subject would have better been served by a straight film narrative rather than the fake documentary approach which, if done wrong, could result in the interviews shattering the tense atmosphere. But they were actually great for getting into the various characters' heads & explaining why they acted in the ways they did.

Perfectly executed with flair & imagination, this film is highly recommended.
