BloodRayne | Chicago Reader


Just when you thought camp was dead, along comes this bizarre cross between a Tarantino knockoff and a Hammer horror film. Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) plays a sword-slinging bisexual 18th-century “dhampir” (part vampire, part human) out to avenge her mother's death at the hands of ubervampire Kagan (Ben Kingsley, of all people). As unintentionally amusing as Michael Madsen, Matt Davis, and Michelle Rodriguez are as her sidekicks, nothing matches the sight of a periwigged Meatloaf vamping as a sybaritic bloodsucker. The two lead actresses sport tight, midriff-baring leather garb and display 21st-century swagger in keeping with the video game on which Guinevere Turner's script is based. Uwe Boll (Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead) directed this hokum. R, 93 min.
