Lee's film tries to find the tension in a host of perhaps interesting themes (addiction, parental responsibility), but all are handled with a lack of finesse.
Not only does Lee know how best to shoot her creatures, Blood Hunters' full body creature make-up is unique and looks great on camera. It's a major asset considering how prevalent they are on camera in the film's second half.
A strong idea backed up with strong visual style, Blood Hunters is a genre fan's dream, or more aptly, nightmare come true.
Lee is a good director, and showcases her talent early on, but the script never lives up to her ability and as such remains a film destined for the darker recesses of Netflix and the like.
The actors do their best to invest Corey Brown's headlong script with sympathy and a little gravitas, but sometimes it's all they can do to draw breath.
It's a solid horror premise, but director Tricia Lee and screenwriter Corey Brown stretch it a little too thin.
despite all its against-the-clock dashing about in the dark, with monsters lurking (as in They, Darkness Falls and Vanishing on 7th Street) wherever light is absent, Blood Hunters remains a tale of maternity and martyrdom
It's a solid feature - another example of the strong creative work coming out of Toronto - and definitely worth a watch.
