The Plot

One hundred years after the events of BloodRayne, we find ourselves in the Wild West, in a sleepy hollow called Deliverance (how original!). Once again, the plot was close to impossible to figure out. We were able to gather that Billy the Kid, yes, THE Billy the Kid, is vampire. I could not figure out how Rayne knew that trouble had come to Deliverance but next thing you know, she’s popped up and raises hell.

Billy the Kid has taken the town’s children hostage, and as far as I can figure wants to build an army of bloodsuckers by monopolising on new rail system that will soon be coming through the town.

Special Effects & Performances

Though the weapon quality improved from the first film, the acting certainly didn’t. And that was after the original actress was replaced. Natassia Malthe tried her best but not even her womanly hips and flowing locks could save this monstrosity. Zack Ward was the right kind of demented, in the wrong movie.

There weren’t many moments of limbs being dismembered or heads severed, as in the first film but what there was, was a marked improvement on the previous special effects employed.

The Review

This was, by far, the most boring of the three BloodRayne movies. Dear lord! I think each of us (the Sneaky Squirrel, the Stygian Mole, the Occult Specialist and me) either fell asleep or came really close to falling asleep at some point during this crap. This wasn’t helped by the fact that 90% of the movie happens at night and is filmed with the worst lighting and filtering.

Though they tried to update the outfit, she was still in entirely inappropriate garb for her purposes. Failing that, it still wasn’t sexy enough, if that was its purpose.  What did bear absolutely no resemblance to its counterpart in the first film, is the vampire lore. Nothing was the same. Not her aversion to water, nor the fact that she cannot go into the sun.

BloodRayne 2 Merry Men

This movie was painful to watch. Especially when the townspeople (whose kids are all being held hostage) decide in the eleventh hour to actually take action. Two dudes walk outside, fire one shot between them. One is killed and the other runs away. The rest of the film is Rayne, and some other guy I can’t be bothered to remember, recruiting their two merry men. I will give it one credit, and that is the that it had the balls to kill a kid on screen. But that’s all I’m giving.
