October Horror Movie Challenge - Blood Punch (2014)

Synopsis: Milton is a genius chemist with a killer meth recipe. He's recruited by Skyler, whom he quickly falls in love with, to help her and her psycho boyfriend, Russell, make a big drug deal. Unfortunately things take a strange twist when they find themselves reliving the same day.

The Good: I love Milo Cawthorne. He was great in Deathgasm and he's a great normal dude protagonist. Olivia Tennet plays a nice quirky love interest, Skyler, and Ari Boyland is perfect as the pyscho pretty boy, Russell. Because this has the Groundhog's Day plot, we get to see Russell die in many unusual and fun ways. 

The Bad: Vague Native American curses don't make for the most solid plots, and it's not explained why it doesn't affect certain things. Still I don't have many complaints about this one. 

Final Thoughts: I don't know if I'd really consider this a horror flick, but it's a quirky dark comedy with thriller elements. If you have Shudder, it's currently on there. Also, fun random fact, most of the cast were in Power Rangers RPM. 

In Your Game: I honestly can't think of any new game stats for this one. You could definitely use the ancient native curse to do a Groundhog's Day-esque adventure/one shot though.
