Despite some dark boxart and a title that suggests anything but Lifetime Movie of the Week, Blood Trap is, well, a Lifetime Movie of the Week. Played on television under the title Saving Emily, Blood Trap can’t really be separated from other MOWs. Like so many before it, Blood Trap isn’t unentertaining, although it is definitely run-of-the mill. Every so often one of these movies gets released, such as A Woman Hunted, A Killing Spring, etc., and the resulting review is usually very much like the one that’s going to follow.

After escaping from an abusive husband, Cheryl (Paul) and was able to attain a better life for herself. With her new husband Gregory (Boxleitner) by her side, Cheryl has been by her now eight-year-old daughter Emily’s side through all of her life. Things only appear to be getting better for the family, as Emily has gone into remission after a bout with leukemia. Unfortunately, on the night of a slumber party, the leukemia comes back. This time it’s worse than before. Without a suitable bone marrow donor, Emily will not be enjoying her life for long.

With her and her husband not being compatible, and all other options vanquished, Cheryl has no choice but to visit her ex-husband Kurt. Still a shady criminal who borrows money in order to pull off schemes, Kurt is just as heartless as you’d expect a man in a Lifetime MOW to be. He’s not interested in his little girl’s problems. What he does want is money. Originally the figure is very low, but with a powerful mob boss pressuring him, the price for his bone marrow goes up to $600,000. Now Cheryl and Gregory must do their best to come up with the money, all while Kurt comes closer and closer to being murdered himself.

If you choose to watch Blood Trap it’s probably best to note that the script is lazy and the characters one-dimensional. After all, it’s a Lifetime Movie of the Week. Some of the character’s actions are just plain laughable. For what it’s worth, though, it’s not too bad. It’s another one of those lazy movies where a certain formula is followed, and as a result, there’s not a lot of room for gigantic errors.

DVD: Barebones.
