In Brad Anderson’s “Blood,” the film aspires to be both a grisly horror thriller and an examination of situational ethics, posing an impossible scenario for viewers to ponder. Unfortunately, it falls short as both a gripping horror experience and an engaging ethical exploration. Michelle Monaghan’s central performance as Jess, a nurse facing a tumultuous divorce while dealing with a life-threatening situation involving her son, stands out amidst the film’s shortcomings. The concept of a parent going to extreme lengths for their child’s survival is introduced but lacks coherence, hindering viewer empathy. Anderson, known for his success in horror, grapples with a convoluted plot that concludes with unintended laughter rather than fear. Despite Monaghan’s dedicated acting and a few compelling scenes, “Blood” fails to deliver a satisfying cinematic experience, leaving the audience wanting more from its promising premise.
