Watch It's In The Blood - Alternative Versions.
Independent horror films are usually trite and imitative, which I find
hard to understand, since the very absence of movie studio execs should
promote creativity. In the case of It's in the Blood, however, that
creativity is present to an intriguing degree. The premise of
characters isolated in the wilds is of course nothing new, nor is the
tensions of a soured father and son relationship, but this film manages
to do something different with these ideas, and in such a way that it's
bound to divide its audience.
If you're looking for gore, thrills and madness, there is plenty of
that, but It's in the Blood isn't as straightforward as all that.
Horrific events years ago plagues Russell's and October's attempts at
reconciliation, but it isn't all bitterness and antagonism. In fact,
what sold me on the movie is the layered relationship between the two
characters, the way we see that they're truly fond of one another,
share a sense of humour and truly want to heal old wounds. There's also
a strong sense of realism in how these two men, each a tough survivor
in his own way, find it difficult to talk about their vulnerable sides.
The interplay, sensitively delivered by the leads, anchors the film and
makes you care about what happens to the characters, which is of course
of paramount importance for a horror film to work.
There is no doubt, I think, about what happened to October, his adopted
sister Iris (Sirna) and Russell years ago, when they ran afoul of
lunatic Michael (Gonzales), but what is actually going on in the forest
in the present day? Now that, I think, is where It's in the Blood
captivates some of its viewers and loses others. It is, to put it
succinctly, hard to tell.
There seems to be a very palpable monster, which at one point
forcefully drags Russell along the ground, and which we get to see in
unsettling glimpses. There is violence done to the characters. Both men
clearly believe there's something there. But is it real, or is it
October's journey of catharsis, or are "tactile hallucinations" (a term
briefly seen in a book) just something that's "in the blood" of this
family? We don't really find out, since the ending is ambiguous and,
given what has gone before, either too simplistic or just another
incarnation of family insanity. Or maybe the monster is real. We don't
know. This is not a film with a high rating in most quarters, and the
intentional blurriness of its storyline is most likely the reason why
if you're looking for a monster movie, perhaps you don't want
mysterious psychology to cloud the gut-ripping.
Personally, I think the uncertainty gives you an unexpected opportunity
to think, pretentious as it may be. It's in the Blood does have that
arty film school feel in some of its particulars, like the fact that
post production must have been an exuberant exercise in dragging the
colour grading slider all over the place: present day scenes as well as
horrific ones in the past are drained of colour in that trendy
noughties way, while the few happy remembrances are almost parodically
bright, golden and cheery of hue. The monster does well to hide in
darkness and fog, for the couple of more intimate snatches we catch of
its appearance are less than convincing. So there are things to point
to if you want to deride the movie, but all in all, this is an
impressive debut feature with more meat than blood to it.
As I intimated above, this kind of story doesn't work without good
actors. Elliot is effectively brooding as the young and troubled
October, but it should come as no surprise that Henriksen steals the
show. Russell is a broken, used up man who could never get past his
wife's death and his drunken failure at rescuing his son and daughter
when they most needed him. Still he maintains his tough guy exterior
and tries to pretend that all is well. Henriksen elevates his character
to a raw degree of naturalism, eliciting sympathy for a man whom it
should be hard to like. I don't know what happened to Henriksen's
career, but it's a shame that he is, without exception, relegated to
no-budget horror movies (most of them much worse than this one) these
days. When Henriksen appears, you look at him. When he speaks, you
listen. That's a rare gift, and one that Hollywood producers and
casting agents should treasure. That he's also one of the more
brilliant actors of his generation is icing on the cake.
It's in the Blood is flawed but ambitious, and it makes for a nice
change to see a low budget horror film that puts some effort into the
script and characters while not forgetting the grue. I'll take
pretentious over mindless any day.
