Een keiharde en bloederige film van de makers van Get Out, Split & Insidious.

Maar al snel blijkt dat hij op gruwelijke wijze iedereen uit de weg ruimt die niet voldoet aan zijn strikte regels. Alles loopt loopt op rolletjes totdat hij een onschuldige man lijkt te hebben vermoord, diens zoon begint te vermoeden dat zijn leraar er iets mee te maken zou kunnen hebben en Evans vrouw benadert.

Reviews
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: Bloodline is a unique and bloody twist the family man trope, one that implies that the devotion with which we remain loyal to our kin may breed a monster where there was once only good intentions.  A Blood-soaked Homage to De Palma.
  • Destroythebrain.com: Violent - borderline "gornographic" - and unapologetic. Seann William Scott delivers an ice-cold chilling performance. Great cinematography and precise direction.
  • Popaxiom.com: A very enjoyable midnight movie. If you are a fan of retro horror, this is one you won’t want to miss because it is a ton of campy fun.
  • Itsjustmovies.com: a fun-loving flick from Blumhouse.
  • Collider.com: Seann William Scott nails the dead-eyed determination of a shark swimming among his prey, which can make him hard root for — especially when his moral compass starts to skew.
  • Nofspodcast.com: If it possible to be both a serial slasher and a family man? Bloodline from Blumhouse Productions and director Henry Jacobson sure think so. The film seeks to subvert your expectations of standard slasher fare, to obliterate your comfort zones, and to help you shed your assumptions – starting with the casting. Bloodline’s lead role belongs to Seann William Scott (American Pie), exploring one of the darkest, most disturbed characters he’s ever portrayed. Bloodline is gory because it is confronting. The assaults are visceral. They’re jarring. And frankly – pretty medically accurate.

Lost in London

Komedie
Beschikbaar voor VOD: 14 november 2019
Regie: Woody Harrelson
Cast: Woody Harrelson (Venom, Midway), Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Zoolander, Night at the Museum - Secret of the Tomb)

Woody Harrelson speelt en regisseert zichzelf in Lost in London, een hilarisch hoogstandje dat live werd opgenomen, in één take, en met één camera. Tijdens een – waargebeurd – nachtje stappen rolt Woody van de ene vernedering in de andere en komt hij uitgebreid in aanvaring met de wet. Een heerlijke satire over de tol en vergankelijkheid van de roem.

Reviews
  • Radiotimes.com: Harrelson pitifully sings the Cheers theme tune to bouncers and, in one of the film's highlights, exchanges insults with Owen Wilson. That kind of desperate, petty humour is the real lifeblood of this misadventure, bringing to mind such directors as Woody Allen.
  • Filminquiry.com:  A strong contender for funniest film of the year, yet so much more than just a comedy, Lost in London is the rare film to live up to its lofty ambitions.
  • TheGuardian.com: Shot in a single take and broadcast live to 500 cinemas, Harrelson’s directorial debut is a unique work that fuses technical wizardry with self-deprecating satire. Harrelson is an affectionate director, finding memorable bits for performers all across the cast list, and his writing is peppered with arresting phrases
  • DMovies.org: Rest assured, Lost in London is like nothing else you’ve seen before.DVD-
  • Fever.co.uk: I definitely recommend you check this out, not only for the concept, but also for a decent evening’s entertainment led by a consummate professional, who’s not onlystarring in it, but also wrote, co-produced and directed it.
