Critic Reviews for Blood River

What's so great about Blood River, is that nothing is spelled out for the audience. Your hand is not held nor your steps guided through this plot.

The 'scary stuff' ranges from sexual tension and psychological torture to theological threats and simple fear of death by dehydration...

Audience Reviews for Blood River


A road-tripping couple break-down in the Californian desert and are joined by a mysterious drifter who starts to create tension between them all. Moves along slowly and without much incident for the first hour, but a twist in the plot sets up a compelling last 30 minutes. Worth a watch but you'll need patience.

A mysterious drifter makes trouble for a young couple when their car breaks down in the desert. A very good performance by newcomer Andrew Howard as the cowboy prophet/supernatural serial killer makes this slightly talky, pseudo-religious horror film watchable.

This is a fantastic mind-fucker thriller. While not genius or groundbreaking, it is certainly engaging. The film focuses in on three characters, stranded in a desert. Considering how easy that setup is to do in a boring way, it's quite impressive how writer/director Adam Mason keeps building the tension. The conclusion may anger some, but will baffle all (as it intended to be an ambiguous one). This is certainly not a jump-scare movie but a psychological spiritual horror. I highly recommend.
