In Brad Anderson’s “Blood,” the film attempts to blend grisly horror with an exploration of situational ethics, presenting viewers with a challenging scenario and asking, “What would you do?” Unfortunately, it falls flat as both a gripping horror thriller and an engaging ethical study. Michelle Monaghan’s central performance as Jess, a nurse grappling with a contentious divorce while facing a life-or-death situation with her son, shines amidst the film’s shortcomings. While the concept of a parent’s extreme actions for their child’s survival is introduced, the execution lacks consistency, hindering viewer empathy. Anderson, known for previous success in horror, struggles with a convoluted plot that results in a conclusion more likely to provoke unintended laughter than fear. Despite Monaghan’s dedicated acting and a few compelling scenes, “Blood” fails to live up to its potential and leaves the audience wanting more from its intriguing premise. Visit 02tvseries for more!
