Jewish vampires. Oy vey!
First off regardless of a films subject or story, anything that’s written, directed and starting the same person virtually never works out well. So why ‘Blood Relatives’ has a 96% Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, is beyond me… especially after watching the film.
Now lets talk about ‘Blood Relatives’. Its largely absent of both foley and diegetic sounds, mainly consisting of just 1-on-1 dialog and the occasional Yiddish(or punk rock) ditty. Which from my perspective, makes the film just feel hollow. The acting itself and cinematography weren’t bad at all, and I did appreciate the on location filming over a studio/green-screen production.
However, ‘Blood Relatives’ ultimately failed to deliver any meaningful substance, I’d call it neither a comedy nor horror. And again, why it has one of the highest Tomato ratings, with 22 Fresh critic reviews, is beyond me. What I can tell you though, is the theme seems to be founded in a mutual consensus of finding the film “charming”. The adjective shows up in almost all critic review synopsis’. IMHO that’s just a passive-aggressive way of saying it was bad!
From human to vampire to….Dad?
This is the Jewish Vampire Dad family movie you didn’t know you needed. It’s a film with a lot of heart, laughs, a healthy splattering of gore, and one ultimate truth; there’s nothing more transformational than becoming a Dad.
Noah Segan’s directorial debut does what his buddy Rian Johnson’s movie “Looper” did with Time Travel. He manages to do something refreshingly new in a very well worn genre.
Blood Relatives is a remarkably charming film that had me at “Oy Vey” and never let go.
The casting is perfect. Victoria Moroles as Jane is delightful and there is a particularly brilliant turn by Josh Ruben as a “familiar” character.
I’ve watched this twice and hope the universe Segan has created has room for more stories.
