Well this is different. Nazis, the occult, a small farm family and two brothers all come together in this twisted tale. Blood Creek is about the Wollners, a German family who living in the US who get a letter in 1936 from Berlin, Germany, requesting they house historian Richard Wirth (Michael Fassbender) who is coming to America to study.
What he comes to study is the Rune stone found on their property. See the Nazi’s believe that the Vikings were their ancestors and came to the US 300 years before Columbus leaving these Rune stone. The lettering on the rune stones explains the path to immortality.
Now fast forward about 70 years where we have Evan Marshall (Henry Cavill) dealing with the disappearance two years ago of his brother Victor (Dominic Purcell). Everyone hopes he is still alive but Evan doesn’t and feels guilty that he was the one to come back from the woods and not his brother. One night he’s awaken by a man who turns out to be his missing brother who’s back from a harrowing two year imprisonment and seeking revenge.
This takes us back to the Wollner farm and let’s just say, Richard Wirth isn’t quite himself anymore.
If you are thinking about watching this movie to see Fassy goodness, don’t. There is only about 5 maybe 10 minutes when his looks don’t creep you out. It’s fairly gory and gruesome too. The story line is interesting but I don’t know if I would call it a great movie. It was okay. Maybe it was the darkness (lighting) of the location, or the blandness of some of the acting. Not sure.
