Blood Ranch is another in a long line of films in the same vein as the Hills Have Eyes. A group of young people are travelling in the desert and end up trapped in the web of a psychopath and his gruesome gang who revel in raping and torturing anyone that falls into their area of influence. Blah, blah...same old, same old. It actually seems promising in the middle of the movie. The madman Spider seems like his story might be interesting, as well as that of his moral degenerate lackies. The only problem is that nothing comes of this. He just randomly tortures people with no apparent reasoning. It appears that the filmmaker got all of his cues from House of a Thousand Corpses. In other words, it seems like if things were properly fleshed out, there might be a good story there. But there's not. The tone tends to change in a bad way, throughout, as well. There are several honestly creepy scenes, along the lines of The Hills Have Eyes, where you cringe seeing the antics of these pscyhos. But then it shifts to more of a jokey feel like in Bloodsucking Freaks. This leaves you off balance, but not in a good way. It just feels like with every scene change you're watching a completely different movie. It's got it's moments, but you either have to be a big genre fan, or just want to see some pretty girls tied up and tormented to enjoy this movie. It's definently not for everyone. I think genre fans will feel it's too tame, and everyone else will just be offended.

"If you liked "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Hostel", "The Hills Have Eyes" &/or "Wolf Creek" you will probably like this movie. Brief summary: Four teenage friends are on a road-trip together to an annual festival they all enjoy. Along the way they pick up a male hitch-hiker who turns out to be an Iraqi war veteran. Then they hit a girl who runs out in front of their car, and is already badly hurt & severely traumatized. With their car disbaled, 4 members of the group head off in search of help while one stays behind with the hurt girl. Well it all goes downhill from there. For these friends anyay! The 4 who took off on foot end up finding a ranch they later wish they hadn't! And the two left behind with the car have unexpected company. And not the pleaseant kind! We soon find out that there is a group of mad-men running this so-called "ranch" & that they delight in capturing, torturing & killing innocent people. (Yes indeed they are pros at it!) Sooooo, we get to watch these 6 people fight for their lives (along with some other people who happen to be be imprisoned on the ranch already). I thought this movie had more main characters than most horror flicks like this (or it seemed so anyway.)And one good point is that MOST OF THE FRIENDS *DO* GET AWAY. But just WHO WILL MAKE IT? AND WHO WON'T? AND WHAT GRUESOME FATE AWAITS THOSE THAT DON'T GET AWAY???? To find all of that out you will have to watch this flick for yourself! But don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!! For serious horror/gore fans only. And not for the little ones."

"I would have given a better score but for two things.Not recorded in 5.1 and the ending was too abrupt not well done. Now the good stuff if you like horror/suspense you are in for a treat. One of the best movies of this sort to come out in a while.Don't want to give too much away but trust me on this one.Just give it a look don't think there are are lot of copies out there so rent it if you have too.But you're going to like it!"
