Some good points, mostly disappointing

"This film had potential. The acting was passable and at times pretty good, but the screenwriting left a lot to be desired. The abs were attractive....
Essentially, sister goes off to college, gets abducted by inbreds, and is rescued by bro & company. Promising story line-- but the screen play did not provide enough support for bro & company go off and initiate violent encounters. The writing was two dimensional in this respect. Also, the inbreds used perfectly good bloodstock for death matches, seems terribly wasteful to me although it saves on the filming budget for extras. The ending was reasonably satisfying.
To me the film simply had too many places where the dots did not connect, combined with areas where clearly the film was sacrificed for cost reasons.
There were some good high points-- the baby scene was good, the latrine escape was good, and some people weren't quite what one expects.
I'd move the film to a 3 or 4 if the screenplay had Jimmy Bob and Bobby Joe also picking up fresh young runaway stock from, say Louisville-- and Cleveland?-- in addition to help from the gas station rat, and only using barren bloodstock for games. The gas station rat should have been better implicated (maybe a partly chopped Jeep in the garage?). Stock ought to be in pens in the run down tobacco barn out back too, keep the goats in the house. Pigs make a convenient disposal method when the deformed ones are done with the "still warm" bodies. The baby scene(s) could be expanded and made more horrific. The film had chilling potential that was simply not realized.
Note that _Bloodlines_ wasn't shot in Kentucky, but a nearby state. Guess Kentuck wouldn't provide any support, well, hardly surprising considering the topic."

"Uneducated, inbred freaks who live in a wooden shack in the hills! Welcome to Kentucky. It has to be tough to live in Kentucky or West Virginia when a writer gets an idea to do a film about inbreeding. You know they are going to place it in your state. Kind of like living in Cleveland and hearing all the Cleveland jokes. (I know) Anyway, I am pretty sure that the folks represented here as denizens of Kentucky are probably not your every day regular Kentucky citizen. As for the film, it was pretty standard fare in this genre. There was some pretty sadistic stuff. This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen. In fact, the last half hour was pretty interesting. The rape scenes were hard to describe. I guess any perpatrator would be unpleasant, but the guy in this film that forced himself upon the girls. He was one gross-out hunk of filth. You had to love him. The gang of bad guys seemed to be pretty easy to dispatch and the ending with everyone going away happy was kind of lame, but if you are into a little psychological abuse and some hokey make-up work, you could do worse than this one. Good for a one time rental."

"This is the first movie Travi Chappell worked on as 2nd assistant behind the camera. She has gone on to work on many projects in L.A. CA. Bloodlines is well produced and edited. Good job."
