Hello my little devils and creeps.
Today we take a stroll down into 1980 to review Blood Bride (aka. Death of a Nun). I saw this film for the first time yesterday with my love and let’s just say it was odd.
Let’s start off with the description of the movie:
A young Catholic woman can’t wait to get married and finally finds the right man who spends an inordinate amount of time in Church. Little does she know that her Mr. Right has a side to him that is down right evil.
You read the description, and you’re like okay… kinda strange but peaks the curiosity of a strange individual like myself. When reading this description – I thought – Okay, so a woman ands up marrying a serial killer. Sounds a lot like the plots on that Lifetime movie network my dad’s girlfriend watches. But, it’s under the horror section so maybe there will be some “satanic” rituals and all that jazz.
This film is like a cheesy soap opera and doesn’t belong in the horror genre. It is something that belongs on one of those soap t.v. stations. They could have done a lot more with this but they didn’t. [Insert Sigh]
The woman is 26 years old and her parents are pushing her to get married because they keep calling her an old maid. The movie starts off with the woman feeding her dad his breakfast and talking about a crappy date with some fella. Saddened by the fact his daughter didn’t have a good date, he frowns and mumbles some stuff about how she needs to find someone because he doesn’t know what to do with her.
She then heads over to confession to confess that she yearns for love of the flesh and God’s love of her soul isn’t enough.
The woman is a secretary at an office and the fella she marries walks in to have an appointment with her boss. After he leaves her boss’s office she is called in and her boss keeps asking her why she is single and then she meets up with her fella who takes her out on a lunch date where she talks in a run on sentence like the one I just wrote about how her life sucks. 🙂
Okay, so the fella has some creepy fetish for some nun that was around when he was a young boy. There are all these flashbacks of him being a little boy and a beautiful woman and then a nun showing off her legs in a sexual manner. So you know right then and there that this is a plot twist for Lifetime Movie Network (I’m ashamed I know of that network…but it’s all they play in waiting rooms at the doctors.)
Oh, there’s also this weird scene when this woman dresses in a sexy nun costume and he ties her up and stabs her…
The lovebirds wed and on their honeymoon he ditches her to go into his library and think about the nun that gave him a show when he was younger. While the woman is left in her room wondering what’s wrong with her and why her new husband won’t have any sexual manner with her. He locks them away in his country inn and starts to beat her so she tries to get away.
Over all, I rate this movie 2 dead babies since the description of it did lead me to watch it. The movie itself could have been much better. The could have at least… shown more background to the hubby and why he was so damn crazy. There were a lot of things missing with this film. It wasn’t at all attention grabbing while watching it. Several times I got up during it to make food, get a drink, do laundry, and even read a stephen king article. But hey, I guess that’s what you get for a film like this.
It does have a very nice cheese factor to it, so that’s a plus. But it doesn’t have a suspense factor. It’s much like a college kid doing a film project sort of feels.
