Before I turned fifteen, I absolutely loved slasher films. I scoured the video stores looking for every single one that I could find, and rarely was I disappointed in what I saw. A few years later, with many more IQ points to my name, I’ll confess to still digging them every now and then. The big problem is that so many directors refuse to go beyond the basic formula. That’s exactly the problem with Blood Reaper, a slasher film conceived by a director and writer that seem to have the same mentality that I did as a ten year old; twentysomethings + killer = A+++++ movie.

The most entertaining part of Blood Reaper is completely inadvertent. Brinke Stevens shows up just long enough to be killed, and is never seen again. Her death actually happens before the opening credits roll. Yet what name flashes up on the screen first? Brinke Stevens.

The big question I was asking myself while watching Blood Reaper was “How can women in the twentieth century look so plain?” It’s almost as if director Lory-Michael Ringuette wanted women that had the hairstyles and manner of dress of someone auditioning for Friday the 13th Part 2. This wouldn’t be so distracting if I popped in an unlabeled VHS and just watched it, but knowing that this was produced in the last few years had a negative effect on my experience.

The most ridiculous part of Blood Reaper comes from something that happens towards the end of the film. A male character throws a knife at the killer, landing it in his shoulder. He apparently believes that a knife in the arm is something that kills you immediately, as he goes over to check out the body. Of course, the killer then pops up and grabs him. Those kinds of things are okay when, I don’t know, the killer has been shot. But a thrown knife to the shoulder? Who is stupid enough to believe that’s a knockout shot?

I just realized I never touched upon the plot of Blood Reaper, and I don’t intend to. Just don’t bother.
DVD: Barebones.
