A monster stalks the corridors of an abandoned mansion, targeting those curious enough to find themselves inside. Two friends break in and discover that all exits have been sealed off. The creature that hunts them is growing hungry for their blood and there is no escape…
“Honestly, while there’s nothing wrong with Blood Bags, it’s still a film that feels rather generic for its genre. The story is good but it’s been done before, though there is some humor peppered into the screenplay—along with a few well-deserved digs at Americans—to keep the viewer engaged and amused.” 3.5 out of 5, Cryptic Rock
” …the story is jettisoned, the horror turned into a series of corridor chases, but the visuals; the visuals remain the high point: from the atmospheric use of colour, light and shadow a la Suspiria and Inferno, to the stunning vision of a victim turned into a blood-soaked ballerina, Ranzani really has made a good looking film. But at the expense of pretty much everything else.” Nerdly
” …while there’s a couple of nice effects the film is short on gore […] We do at least get some imaginative photography and atmospheric shots courtesy of Ranzani who’s also the camera operator on Blood Bags. They help make the film a lot more effective than it really has a right to be.” Voices from the Balcony
