Wooweh! – something smells good down on the farm. Must be some of that down home barbeque we’ve been hearing about? “Trilogy of Blood” though the title may be deceiving is actually 1 short film. The film is highlighted with 3 rowdy good ol rock and roll performances by the boys from “Dead Neks”. This 25 minute short is actually done pretty cleverly to showcase a band and give us some quick and dirty horror to boot.
3 young girls on their way cross country decide to pick up a local hitchhiker. The 3 girls include Brenna Lee Roth as Marilyn, Tisha Gardener as Connie and Elysegirl as Sherry. The hitchhiker offers them a night of partying and music at his barn band rally. Reluctant, they accept and come upon a party in progress. The hitchhiker grabs the Mike and the Dead neks go to town. As the music progresses, each girl eventually gets taken by surprise, killed and then carved up for the nights festivities. Yep, barbeque is on the menu, but its done this time cannibal style. The partygoers, band and locals feast out on the ignorant travelers to their hearts content.
The movie is produced by Ruckus productions and directed by Rick Kelley & Charlie Ruckus. The edit has a heavy helping of grindhouse grit overlay that stays on pretty hard start to finish. Though the treatment really works for the tone and style of this film probably much better than it would have without it.
The country scenery combined draws you into a classic Texas chainsaw feeling that keeps the flow nicely together. Violence is pretty much hardcore and direct. No real build up or reasoning, we just assume they are killers and that’s what they do. The FX are basic and chop edited in, though as the synopsis says…the film had a budget of 62 dollars. My meal last night totaled more than that, so not bad….not bad at all.
These guys have fun with it, don’t take themselves too seriously and present this short with a cool party atmosphere. The music is driving and lays a nice foundation of backing music to the whole project. Oh, ya, if you stick around you might be educated on the seriousness of farm machinery sex abuse. Good times!
