A pleasant surprise!

"After spending almost an hour at the video store wandering around and not finding anything to rent that looked interesting or that I hadn't already seen I stumbled upon this one. It sounded interesting so I figured I'd take a chance and rent it.
As I put the dvd into the player my expectations were very low and I half expected that I would end up stopping it halfway through and watch something on tv instead. However once the movie started I was immediately intrigued and drawn in. It was actually not half bad, it wouldn't win any Oscars but it was certainly better than a lot of movies I have gone to see in theaters over the years. The story was interesting and original, the acting wasn't too bad, it was well directed and edited with plenty of supernatural horror mixed with fast paced action sequences.
I think this is one of those movies that will appeal to certain people and appeal not at all to certain others. So I can't tell you that you will like this movie and I won't, however if you are like me and you like a little supernatural horror mixed action sequences and zombies, then you might just enjoy this flick. I would recommend renting this movie before you buy, personally however if I had bought this movie without seeing it first I wouldn't have been regretted it. This is one I will add to my dvd collection now."
Better than most theatre scary movies

"This was a great, fast-paced scary movie with an interesting plot. It's a lot better than a lot of theater releases that I've seen in the past couple of months. Dominic Purcell plays his role well and so does Henry Cavill as the brother who watches over his nephews. It had really great special effects and was just overall very well done. Definitely give it a shot, but I have a feeling this will be one of those very underrated awesome movies."
Don't be fooled by medium fans

"A smart thing to do when reading these reviews about A Movie or CD you think you might like is to look at the persons other reviews and you will see that they would not have been fans in the first place. One of my favorite horror movies people bashed and when I looked at there other reviews one guy reviewed a salad dressing, and another was for A golfball. Not one review was about any other horror movies, so I would not say there opinion matters. I think that this movie was original and well done. If you watch movies like The Notebook and Meet The Parents, then I would expect you to not like these sort of movies anyway."
Not horrible like I expected

"Joel Schumacher helming a direct to DVD horror film? I was originally intrigued just based on the fact that it seemed like Blood Creek (originally called Town Creek) would be an entertaining train wreck, but instead, the film is a decent enough horror dirge that features some solid acting. Henry Cavill (The Tudors) stars as a paramedic whose long missing soldier brother (Dominic Purcell of Prison Break) returns and seeks his help in exacting revenge on the family he claims have held him captive. The brothers soon discover however that there is more going on with this family then what it seems however, dating back to the days of World War II when a Nazi scholar (Michael Fassbender of Inglourious Basterds) unleashed something dangerous, blood thirsty, and immortal. With disagreements between Schumacher and the film's screenwriter, it's no wonder Blood Creek sat on Lions Gate's shelf for as long as it did. The script is all over the place and often confusing, while a good amount of the film's CGI effects are pretty bad as well. Still, the film is capably directed for the most part, and Purcell and Cavill are surprisingly great in the leads. All in all, Blood Creek isn't quite the train wreck I was expecting, and is worth your time if you have some time to kill."
