George, if you're reading this (which I doubt), don't take it personally that I didn't care for "Blood Of The Beast". I'm sure it was a huge investment of time, effort, and all the money you could raise (and maybe some you couldn't really afford) to make it. I had some hopes in the beginning - there were flashes of interesting visuals here and there. And the atonal soundtrack added a lot to the feel and interest in the film.

But I hate it when film makers try to substitute jump cuts, jerky video, stock footage and arty edits for a clear sense of what's going on, especially during crucial plot points (like when the clonezombies appear by the farm house where the reverend and the campers are confronting each other. WTF actually happened???). And you went to that well a few times too many in this film. It may have been a budgetary decision as much as an artistic one, but in the end, I was sick of the whole thing.

Also, there was some pretty aggressive non-acting going on with some of the supporting cast, many of the ideas and themes brought up during the early moments of the movie weren't developed, and the completely nihilistic ending made the whole thing a bitter pill to swallow - I watched for an hour plus for THAT???

I hope you went on to bigger and better things - this movie showed that you had a lot of ambitions and things to just need a better writer and editor.
