Blood Ties (2002)

2002 Horror, Thriller

User Score: 60/100


This film concerns the exploits of the "Carpathian American" society in Long Beach. Carpathian Americans...

Like another reviewer said, let’s face facts, a lot of vampire films are either dull, weird, or downright dumb. Dull and a little stupidity makes this vampire film what it is.

It looked like an interesting vampire film at the video rental place. It looked a lot better than some of the other vampire films there. And though the movie I don’t hate, I found extremely boring. Hardly anything happened. Most of the time they just talked and snarled at each other and these young ones were just dumb fledglings that are weak and destructive. Hardly as refined and secretive as the old ones, and you wonder why the old ones don’t do anything about it. The old ones just sit there and talk and talk with one female that obviously sleeps around as a hobby…boring. Then these vampire hunters are hardly anything more than the stereotypical kind. This whole movie drips with stereotype. Except for the fact these vampires can go out at day, and usually always are. Hardly any real characters to care for, and the plot itself is one- minded besides the lead male vampire having the hots for a human female, which I could have cared less about. Nothing really new in this film that gives any spark, nor an interest. I would not recommend it. Try to find a better vampire film. A B movie at its most boring.
