Movie Reviews

Not great, but good
Nathan Christian | Pitcairn, PA USA | 06/04/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Photographed well, this story kept my attention. Some of the actors weren't up to standard, like the over acting of the gun happy convict, but when the real terror takes place at the cabin, the real fun begins. The language of the cabin dwellers is interesting.

It does have alot of gore in it, but it fits into the overall theme and flow of the movie. I reccommend it for fans of Evil Dead and the like."
House of Colonial looking Bible fearing Possessed Vampire Pe

"House of blood is like a mixture of movies like Con-air,The Village,Evil Dead,The Exorcist, and a Vampire movie. A convict bus crashes and the convicts clip the guards(con-air) and escape. Lead by a ruthless trigger happy loud mouth convict, the convicts head off into the woods going north as to go to Canada. Among the convicts is a doctor who is endlessly butting heads with the loud mouth convict leader. Eventually they all wonder far enough into the woods and stumble upon a old english looking manor house. Inside the house they find the folk who dwell within the house. The folk (The Village)dress like colonial and speak biblical language (thy shalt leave ith thou place of livith, blah, blah, blah)or like their in a ren fair. Soon enough the convicts realize that the control they had on the holy rollers has turned around when the colonial bible people turn into (The Exorcist)evil possessed creatures after chanting. The make up work on the demonized people look a lot like the possessed people that where in the movie "Evil Dead". The demon people are really Vampires! They can't die. One was smashed in the face with a steel mallet only to have its face turn back to normal and get back up again and kill. Bullets have no effect on them either. The violence and gore get pretty good at this point. The Vampires ripped and shredded through the convicts till only the doctor remains. The Doctor has a connection with one of the colonial bible possessed vampire people. You have to watch and see what that connection is. To make a long story short, the Dr. was caught in the woods by the SWAT unit and police who can't seem to find the mysterious vampire manor after the Dr. told his story of what happened. The good Dr. is then sent back on a convict bus with other convicts to transport back to Seattle when.......... the bus crashes and deja-vu all over again but with a dif group of convicts which, yes, end up back to the same Vampire manor house again with pretty much the same results starting again but with a dif ending this time, an ending you'll have to see when ya rent it."
EXTREMELY underrated!

"Another horror movie that got a lot of bad reviews because of bad acting... Seriously, who cares about acting in gory movies? Ok, it got bad reviews for other reasons too, but I really don't think that it deserves such a low rating (it has 3.6 on IMDB)... Anyway, it's very entertaining and very gory and that's all it's supposed to be! Yeah, the acting/dialogue sucks and it's stupid in parts, but acting/dialogue isn't important in gory movies and stupidity can be a good thing! I understand why many people hate the plot (the fact that the same thing happens 3 times), but personally, it doesn't bother me at all.

Anyway, I recommend it to gore fans, but I don't recommend it to anyone else because it's a movie for gore fans only.

Note: This DVD doesn't have all of the gore. About 2 minutes of gore was cut and that's a lot because most of the gore scenes in Ittenbach's movies don't last more than 10 seconds."

"Olaf Ittenbach is a GORE director- Now don't let this put you off- His directing skills are more impressive than most directors in the genre (Andreas Snaas, Timo Rose etc)-
Look out for some TERRIBLEover acting from the 'first' lead baddie- it's hilarious- and his brother- (with a different accent!?) excellent stuff!
This film has a twisting plot involving shape shifting demon god worshippers (yes i was confused too?)
The story revoles around a doctor in the wrong place at the wrong time- over and over again (hence the 'Chain reaction - original title)
Weak parts are the vague storyline link between the womanm at the house in the woods (with demons) and the Doctor- bit pointless and adds nothing to the story-
But the gore is excellent as you'd expect from Olaf (FX artist on many a gore independant film)
But i would look out for the uncut version as the R rated U.s one only has the gore on screen for a short time- (unlike the excellent "Beyond the Limits- Olaf's best to date- directing wise)
If you enjoy your gore then this is for you."
