BLOOD HOUSE (2021) Review of British micro-budget horror



Blood House is a 2021 British horror film about a group of colleagues who seek shelter in a ruined old farmhouse; little do they know, it may be their final destination ever.

Written, produced, directed by and starring Tony Manders (Dark Corners; Death Follows; actor in Onus; Wreck; The Mermaid’s Curse; The House on Elm Lake; Mother Krampus; Dogged; Foxtrap and others).

The Kerchak Film production also stars Gemma Harlow Dean, John Fisher, Matt Hemmings, Richard Wilde and Meg Owlett.



Blood House runs an hour and fifty minutes, and there’s no excuse for it. Trimming the unneeded and/or repetitive dialogue alone would have cut half an hour off the running time […] Overlong and underdeveloped, Blood House is a prime example of how not to make a microbudget film. Manders needed to keep things short and the characters doing, not saying.” Voices from the Balcony
