Bloody Mallory Review
Synopsis:Heroines Mallory, Vena Cava and Talking Tina fight the fallen angel Abaddon and his accomplices vampire Lady Valentine and succubus Morphine.
Bloody Mallory (2002) is a French action, comedy and horror that is 94 minutes and was shot in Sous-sols, Pontoise, Val-d’Oise, France. Director Julien Magnat (Faces in the Crowd (2011), Seance (Short) (2014)). This film is the movie for you if you are interested in succubus, vampire, female protagonist/warrior, torture, good versus evil, Vatican, telepathy, shapeshifter, giant, Ghoul, forces of evil, drag queen, exploding head and vampire slayers. With that said, the movie was a slow burning paced movie that is great to put me to sleep although I was amazed by the Notre Dame cathedral and a few other sceneries.
Bloody Mallory revolves around Mallory (Olivia Bonamy - Them (2006), Read My Lips (2001), The Last Deadly Mission (2008), Pretty Devils (1999)) who is the head of a government team that battles the supernatural. Mallory and her team are assigned to protect a convent who are being assaulted by a group of undead monsters. Their battle with the undead monsters resulted in three of her team members (Vena, Durand, and Tina) not coming out of the battle the way they entered with the exception of an explosive expert and a mute. Drag queen Vena Cava (Jeffrey Ribier - Jefferson in Paris (1995), Comme un bateau, la mer en moins (1992), Goal (1992)) was injured in the battle. Talking Tina (Thylda Bares - Les ravissements (2012), We Need a Vacation (2002), Girls Can Get Away with Anything (2002), Amazon (2000)) is a preteen who can possess others with her telepathic powers and is now in a coma as the result of the battle. Durand (Thierry Perkins-Lyautey - The Warrior’s Brother (2002), The Last Deadly Mission (2008), My Knickers (2006), Michel Vaillant (2003)) was an armed government agent who entered the battle alive and came out dead.
Newly elected Pope (Laurent Spielvogel - Midnight in Paris (2011), Ronin (1998), Frantic (1988), French Kiss (1995)) was kidnapped by bulletproof masked attackers while the battle was going on. Mallory was not pleased with accepting the pope’s case but did so because she thought that there might be a connection with the Pope and her team’s assailant. Mallory and her team received the help of priest Pere Carras (Adria Collado - Aqui no hay quien viva (2003), Evita (1996), KM 31: Kilometre 31 (2006), Aislados (2005)) who is trained in martial arts. Their investigation lead them to a vampire who is centuries old. What happens next is something I want to say, but I have given enough details about the film as it is.
Bonamy and Thylda Bares gave the best performance in the film whereas their fellow actors acting was average. Religious people may be offended how the Pope was portrayed. Bloody Mallory is the type of movie that you watch mindlessly for a good laugh and should not be taken seriously because then it will be a total waste. I am not a fan of the movie, but my fellow watchers had a few good chuckles. Not everyone likes the same type of movies, and that is why I gave the film a three for great sceneries, good makeup/wigs/wardrobe and action scenes. It is simply not my cup of tea.
