The directorial debut for director Tim Reis, Bad Blood is a film that takes the typical werewolf premise and gives it an amphibious twist. The film is also a bit of an allegory for drug addiction, since Victoria's stepfather Wade (Brian Troxell) is convinced that Victoria is a junkie, which is supported by the sociopathic private eye Paul (Troy Halverson), hired by Victoria's parents after she goes missing, who provides a leaflet linking drug abuse to the lunar cycle.
When it comes down to it, it seems that Bad Blood is a film that is more about creature effects and gore than a well developed story. Indeed, there are some scenes, such as Victoria's transformation and the various gory kills that are top notch. However, the rest of the film has a very B-movie plot, which is filled with bad acting and characters that are just there to be killed. That's not necessary a bad thing, however given how good a film such as Ginger Snaps handled similar subject matter, Blood Blood could have benefited from a few more script rewrites, which perhaps focused a bit more on the equation of the transformation with drug addiction. Bad Blood is a campy creature feature that really could have been so much more.
