In eighteenth century Romania, Rayne, a Dampier (half-human, half-vampire), prone to fits of blind blood rage but saddled with a compunction for humans, strives to avenge her mother’s rape by her father, Kagan, King of Vampires. Two vampire hunters, Sebastian and Vladimir, from the Brimstone Society persuade her to join their cause.
Fortunately, the “Horror” audience has a short attention span so I was spared sitting through another minute of this film. Believe me, the 96 minutes I was forced to watch were long enough. “BloodRayne” is a gore fest like I have never seen before. Bodies being cut to pieces; vampires sucking and drinking blood in every scene; and an on-screen sex scene between Rayne and a member of the Brimstone Society all combine to make this anything other than a family film.
I can understand that Meatloaf and Billy Zane might need a little extra cash, but I would have thought that Ben Kingsley should be doing OK by now. “BloodRayne” is just another film adaptation of a violent video game gone bad.
