What's happening?


Blood (2023) is a movie that aims to blend horror and ethical dilemmas to create a thought-provoking and terrifying experience. However, as seen in the review by Roger Ebert, the movie falls short on both counts. In this article, we’ll dive deeper into the flaws of Blood (2023) and why it fails to deliver as a horror movie or an ethical exploration.

Lack of Gripping Horror

One of the main issues with Blood (2023) is its inability to deliver on the horror front. Despite the gory and violent scenes depicted in the movie, it fails to elicit fear or suspense from the viewers. According to Ebert[1], the movie “is never gripping or scary enough to work as [a horror movie].” The director, Brad Anderson, seems to rely solely on blood and gore, without establishing a sense of tension or fear in the audience.

Failed Attempt at Situational Ethics

Another goal of Blood (2023) was to pose an ethical dilemma to viewers and ask them, “What would you do?” However, the movie fails to achieve this as well. Ebert[1] notes that “it’s never engaging to work as [an ethical exploration].” The problem seems to be the lack of depth in the characters and their motivations. The characters are one-dimensional, and their actions and decisions are often illogical or inconsistent, making it difficult for the audience to relate or care about them.


In conclusion, Blood (2023) is a failed attempt at blending horror and situational ethics. The lack of tension and fear, coupled with poorly developed characters, makes it difficult for the audience to engage with the movie on any level. As a result, Blood (2023) falls short of its intended goals and ultimately disappoints as a horror movie or an ethical exploration.
