BLOODTHIRSTY is a new horror film about werewolves. It's a character-driven story that unfolds slowly. Personally, I enjoyed the LGBTQ characters and the fact that they were not marginalized. The main character is simply involved in a relationship with another woman. That's how it should be!

Also, the music was fantastic. This is the kind of music I should listen to over and over again.

A very different kind of werewolf movie

In Bloodthirsty, the usual werewolf rules donít apply. Much as was the case with the vampire movie Boys from County Hell which is released around the same time. Find that one on Shudder and read our Boys from County Hell review here!

Back to this new werewolf movie where you donít get cursed by being bit. Our lead character, Grey (Lauren Beatty) doesnít become a werewolf through contact with another werewolf. Instead, itís inside her all along and she is struggling to keep it down.

In fact, she thinks sheís merely hallucinating when her eyes change color and her fingernails turn into claws. And hey, maybe she is hallucinating?! Her doctor (played by Michael Ironside) certainly thinks so and prescribes pills and treatment of all kinds.

Too reminiscent of Raw

From the second I saw the Bloodthirsty poster (or cover art), I got a distinct Raw vibe. This is fine as long as this is just for the promotional art or itís acknowledged. Well, itís not just the art and I didnít catch any acknowledgment of inspiration from Raw.

Sure, it could just be a coincidence but from the look of the poster to the ďIím a vegan who ends up trying meat only to discover that Iím actually a mythical flesh-craving creature of some kindĒ-storyline, itís just too much. Right down to the nighttime visit to the fridge to eat raw meat. Sure, in Raw is was chicken and in Bloodthirsty itís beef.

Still, after the huge success of Raw, it feels too close to home.

Watch Bloodthirsty on VOD
Amelia Moses is the director of Bloodthirsty and this is the second feature from her. We reviewed her feature film debut Bleed with Me when it screened at Fantasia in 2020. She also wrote her debut film, while this latest movie had other scriptwriters. So, while you might see a bloody theme, it isnít all Amelia Moses.

The screenwriters for Bloodthirsty are Wendy Hill-Tout and Lowell. The two are mother and daughter and itís quite the interesting werewolf story theyíve created here. Lowell is also the songwriter for this movie that features many gorgeous songs. And yes, the story is based (to a point) on Lowellís own experience as an artist.

Something Amelia Moses clearly also related to and which makes the movie work. To a point. Also, I can easily appreciate the ďmonster withinĒ-aspect. Iím just a bit on the fence about how well it works. I mean, it does work for me. Just not without reservations.

For this reason, I canít really go higher with my rating. At the same time, I would never even consider going lower. There is so much potential in this story and movie. I just canít help but feel that it could have been better if taken in a slighter different direction.

Bloodthirsty is out On Demand and Digital from April 23, 2021.
