Quick Review: Blood Runs Cold (2011)
For a movie made on a $5,000 (U.S.) budget, Blood Runs Cold is a masterpiece. We didn't particularly love it, but for having absolutely nothing to work with budget wise, these filmmakers deserve a pat on the back.

This Swedish film is a slasher, through and through, though it's a clumsy slasher at best. It's at least got some gore and nudity, which are the staples of any good slasher movie. As far as plot, script, acting and everything else goes though... the movie is obviously lacking in most departments.

Keep in mind though, for a budget that was basically non-existent, what they did here is quite an accomplishment. I can't say I'd recommend this one to anybody, but then again, I feel like I should because it deserves a little bit of love based on thriftiness alone.

Just move back a little, dummy!
Also, the killer looks like the guy from the Fritt Vilt series. Just wanted to mention that in hopes of starting a Swede/Nord movie war of some sort.

Don't ask.
The movie is truly one that belongs in the D range, but we have to give it a C for being the best $5000 movie we've ever seen. Nice effort, guys.

More like Blood Runs Warm, am I right?
