Definitely a Relic

"Stop me if you've heard this one before...
There's this evil little sculpture thing, like the thing that Max Von Sydow finds in the beginning of the Exorcist. This little sculpture has a really unsavory effect on the people who possess it. The first guy that gets his hands on it is some kind of fighter pilot. He goes all wing-whack and shoots everybody at his Air Force Base.
Now flash forward to 2005. There's a bunch of college kids who are trying to help put together some kind of aviation museum. For some reason, the kids are renovating this museum in the middle of the night, and they all end up getting locked inside. Enter the creepy KILLER! Blood Relic deteriorates rapidly into a fairly standard Teen Slasher flick. They even have the standard couple sneaking off into the back room to make out. The guy is into kinky sex and likes to terrorize his girlfriend with a knife while they enact rape scenarios. You just know where this is going, right? The killer dons a fighter helmet (complete with shaded visor) and pretends to be kinky boyfriend. The girl protests with the usual progression of "Hey, I kinda like that" to "Hey, not so rough" to "Alright, cut it out, it's not funny anymore" to "Aaaaarrrggh!" I wish I had a penny for every time some second rate horror movie pushed this clichéd wreck on unsuspecting viewers.
Fasten your seat belts everyone, this is My Bloody Valentine in an aerospace museum. In the end, there's the standard bad guy twist where the bad guy that you thought was the bad guy isn't really the bad guy. It's kinda funny when you think about it, naming this movie Blood Relic - because that's what this movie is: a relic. A crusty old outdated thing that should probably be left on the shelf to collect dust.
If you have nothing better to do...

"I found this to be a fun movie. It's appeal probably lies more so with its campiness and gratuitous nudity than scariness or great film making. If you come across it and have nothing better to do it's worth a look.
The movie is centered around an abandoned Air Force base being renovated by some college students in efforts to turn it into an airplane museum. In the process of fixing things up they come across a voodoo relic that was brought there by a pilot that had formerly served on the base. The relic takes possession of the person wearing it and turns them into a killer. What follows is a one by one picking off while the characters try to figure out what is going on and 'who done it'."
Don't go off of the cover

"Opens with a crazed marine who ends up killing 4 people cause of a talisman he's wearing around his neck, before being caught he stashs it in the air base(becomes the museum)and with his release 22 years later from an asylum, he comes back to get it. The story being about a group of 8 friends who work at an air museum for a somewhat crazy and needy boss, who seeks to preserve aviation history. And with his enthusiasum, and the history of the base the group of friends suspect that the place is haunted. So they decide to spend the night and have a seance to see if they can finally prove if the place is haunted. One thing leads to another and they end up being trapped inside. One by One, they fall victim to a masked murdered wearing a flight suit(nothing like the cover). The movie is not bad...Not much happens, though. Just the same old things you expect from a movie like this, with the ending being called out within the first 20 minutes. If you're seeing this movie cause of the cover, you're going to be pretty dissapointed. If you enjoy lower budget Horror movies you should probably enjoy this one, and you can expect to see what those movies offer. But if you're someone who likes Horror in their Horror movies...not much there and you're probably better off seeing another movie.. Can't say much more you know what you're getting into with movies like these. As I say that, overall a good movie, entertaining."
