Movie Info

Blood Legacy was also released as Legacy of Blood (as was a like-titled, though dissimilar, 1978 film). Looking older than dirt, John Carradine plays a crotchety millionaire who wills his fortune to his estranged children. There is, of course, a proviso. The kids, all grown up and none too savory, must spend a week in Carradine's estate. Naturally, this leads to a lot of petty spitefulness...which in turn leads to murder. Jeff Morrow and Faith Domergue, who in happier times co-starred in This

Audience Reviews for Blood Legacy

Not to be confused with "The Legacy" starring Katharine Ross, it still has a very similar plot involving guests staying in an old house where they are getting murdered one by one.
Of course, here it's so low-budget that you don't actually see the murders except with shadows and a few blood splatters. There are a couple of exceptions but they really aren't all that exciting.
There isn't much action at all as it's really just a lot of talk. The dialogue itself is woeful too and the delivery is very poor.
I have a bad feeling that this film was supposed to be a comedy but how could that be when there is nothing remotely funny in it either?
