Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge follows Christine and her friends as they drive home through the desert from a bachelorette party. Stopped by a mysterious woman who is dressed in a police officers uniform, they are lead straight into the trap of mass murderer Max Seed. Seeking revenge from a mishap years ago, the blood soaked madman is determined to inflict an insufferable pain to anyone who crosses his path.

I like to think that every film I watch teaches me something about life, furthers my understanding of the world around me and maybe how to treat my fellow man (or woman). What this film has taught me is not to take a long detour through the desert “for the scenery” if you are just going to whine and complain the entire way and not actually pay attention to what is happening outside; don’t pick up hitch hikers, because they will try to murder you is very graphic and horrific ways and also if you are going for a walk in the desert, take more than one bottle of water. It is very hot out there.

Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge, a sequel to Uwe Boll’s Seed, is a slasher flick which follows the delightful Max Seed (played by Nick Principe – who also played Chromeskull in the Laid to Rest films and directed the fantastic short Penance) who seems to enjoy killing, maiming and disfiguring people in a variety of extremely revolting to watch ways. The first scene in the film is particularly vile and has taught me (much to my disgust) that guns are not appropriate objects to be used as sex toys.

As for plot, I didn’t get much from this film as it jumped all over the place faster than a toddler on a sugar rush, but from over the tortured women’s screams I could just about make out something about religious fanaticism and I have been informed that there is a link to the the first film (having not seen it), but it is very loose and probably wouldn’t have made much difference if it wasn’t there at all. This film seems to have been made for the ‘gross out’ value alone. Now there is a time and a place for that, but it should be done with a story which fits around it, not just ‘because gore and blood and stuff yay!’

Would I recommend this film? No. Do I want to see this film again? No. Now excuse me, I am going to cry in the shower whilst I try and wash the memory of this film from my mind.

Blood Valley: Seed’s Revenge is released in the US on October 7th. No news on a UK release as yet.
