Never seen Blood Creek? It’s an unusual horror/zombie/action/supernatural flick directed by Joel Schumacher but one well worth the watch if you’re a lover of the genre!
In 1936, the Wollners – a German family living in rural Morgan County, West Virginia – are contacted by the Third Reich to host a visiting scholar, Professor Richard Wirth. In need of money, they accept Wirth into their home. Wirth’s grand occult project seals the Wollners off from the rest of the world and makes them players in a horrifying game of survival. After 71 years, in 2007, Evan Marshall’s life has stalled at twenty-five years old. Left without answers after his older brother Victor’s disappearance from a camping trip near Town Creek, he has tried to move on. But when Victor returns one night, very much alive and having escaped his captors, Evan asks no questions – at his brother’s request, he loads their rifles, packs up their boat and follows him back to Town Creek on a mission of revenge that will test them in every possible way…
My Rating: B+
Interesting Facts: Joel Schumacher and David Kajganich had a falling out over all the changes Schumacher wanted in the script (not unlike what happened between Schumacher and Andrew Kevin Walker on 8MM (1999)). The director won and re-wrote parts of the script himself; Micheal Fassbender was excited to work with Joel Schumacher, whom he cites as one of his favorite directors; and Wentworth Miller plays an unnamed german soldier. He also starred in Prison Break opposite Dominic Purcell.
