Just watched "Summer's Blood" and I can say it's worth-watching movie. I'm pleasantly surprised to see Ashley Greene in such a serious role. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes this style. It's a story that keeps you "awake" to the end, you can't figure out what the heroes are going to do. At short I really, really LOVE this movie and I'll record it on a disk with "Thirteen","Deep Winter" and "Lords of Dogtown". "Summer's blood" is unique movie as i saw it. It has good plot, very good actors <more>
and keeps the public in tension. Honestly I downloaded it because of Ashley Greene and I'm definitely glad that I did watched it. It's nice. Love it.
After receiving the DVD today I thought it looked like one you would get free in a newspaper in a few years time. Like 'The Night Caller' that wasn't so good .But nevertheless I watched it anyway and I have to say for a 15 day shoot it is very good. Predictable at times but then a lot of films are these days. There was some good acting from Ashley Green and most other actors. I especially like Stephen McHattie in the film, for some reason the way he delivered his lines was quite amusing. The film's ending wasn't spectacular but better than some I have seen. I would <more>
First of all, I loved this movie.Now, I am a Twilight fan, which is what mainly interested me in seeing Ashley Greene in this.I expected a gore-fest, but I was wrong.Although it wasn't what I had wanted, or expected, I did love it.The ending was off.But it surprises you, and keeps you awake until the end.If you're interested in horror/thriller movie survivors, then I would recommend this to you.This movie is mainly of the girls' escape, but it keeps you interested enough so you'll continue to watch it.Several plot twists and turns make it all the wild.You'll constantly be <more>
asking yourself what the heroes will do.So, yeah, I really did like it.Although the story plot seems so unoriginal that it looks bad; it isn't.But trust me.You'll be glad you watched it.It is not the best movie out there, but it is worth the watch.The movie looks cheap and and bad, but it actually is a great movie.I know, I know.The cover looks like it would be sold with every two boxes of Apple Jacks you purchase at the store, but give it a shot.You'll be glad you did.What I'm trying to say is that I loved the movie...and I hope you will check it out:
well worth watching, and not at all what you'd think (by NateWatchesCoolMovies)
Summer's Moon, also given the slightly less exotic title Summer Blood, is a fascinating little family centered psycho sexual treat, starring an actress who previously hadn't ventures into such intense territory. Ashley Greene is a porcelain beauty best known for those Twilight train wrecks, and its that marketing style these filmmakers have latched onto because of her involvement. The poster has a hazy hue that almost hints at the dreaded vampiric sparkle we've come to loathe. It's picturesque to be sure, but doesn't really provide any warning to the disturbing, gritty and <more>
uncomfortably intimate nature ofnthe story. Greene plays Summer, a wayward drifter who arrives in a small bucolic burg, out to find the father she never knew. Enter the Hoxeys, an I'll adjusted family of serial killers claiming to be her long lost family, and beckoning her into depravity with all the charm and hospitality that small town folks can muster. Her brother Tom Peter Mooney keeps a kidnapped girl in the basement as a plaything and sleeps with his unstable mother Barbara Nixon , and that's but a taste of the horror that Summer has waded into. The film takes on new virility when the resident patriarch Gant Hoxey blows back into town, played with visceral ferocity by veteran tough guy Stephen Mchattie. Intense is the word for this guy ever catch his cameo in A History Of Violence? Christ , and he's a beast as Gant, Summer's estranged father, a man who functions on violence and feeds of fear. The film examines how a clan of murderers might indeed function, right down to twisted lover's spats and drama right out of an R rated Addams Family special. Greene nicely shatters her teen image by bringing us a broken protagonist who finds her dark passenger through resilience and torment, the blackness that sweeps over her soul clearly visible, loomed over by Mchattie's grim reaper influence. Murder and the desire to do so is regarded as a genetic trait in this film, passed along the line of kin, generation to generation, wreaking havoc in the process. A film that I underestimated going in, a terrific horror entry that takes its it's with character and suspense, slow burning up to a spectacularly gory third act filled with tension, blood and Mchattie, that icy voiced devil who steals every scene he's in. Well worth your time.
