What it is: Horror movie

A man comes to an Oklahoma town to find out about the death of his brother, which was the result of a demon-dog worshipping blood cult run by the several prominent citizens of the town.

I’ve not seen the original BLOOD CULT, which is mostly famous for being the first made-for-video title exclusively. However, I don’t think seeing the original makes a whole lot of difference; this movie seems to work just as well as a stand-alone movie. Or, perhaps I should say that it fails to work just as well; most of the movie seems to consist in waiting around for people to be killed or for other events to happen. It was shot entirely in location in Oklahoma, and perhaps the most interesting thing about it is that the heroine is a middle-aged woman. For what it’s worth, the acting is competent if uninspired. It also features John Carradine in what he was given to claiming was his five hundredth film, so he should get some kind of award of quantity over quality. At 100 minutes the film is overlong, and it has a couple of twists that don’t really add or subtract from the movie, and a few unanswered questions. All in all, this is mostly just a dreary time-killer.
