Charles (Graham Denman) and Thomas (Jon Kondelik) are very unlikely brothers: While Charles is your typical momma's boy who feeds his alcoholic mother (Barbara Crampton) wine as if it was medicine, Thomas is the typical alpha male, always making decisions for the most of them. That said, the two almost always hit the streets together, and they dress almost eerily alike. And somehow they have come to the conviction that they are superhuman, in a metaphoric way, and have to prove themselves by committing a murder. They try to slaughter prostitute Vanity (Hannah Levien), but Thomas chickens out claiming she's too impure - but when he sees his brother takes a fancy in Genevieve (Hannah Levien again), barista at their favourite café, he decides she's the one - but then he lets Charles do all the heavy lifting (as in, beating her head in with a rock), and then is properly shocked about what they've done, and guilt gets the better of him, with the memory of Genevieve's murder haunting not only his dreams. Charles on the other hand found murdering the girl he almost loved liberating, and it really boosts his self-confidence and makes him the alpha dog of the duo. And now that he has licked blood, he thinks it's only fair to continue where the two left off with prostitute Vanity. But all the while there's a psychic cop (Ken Foree) on their trail, and alcoholic mum might be wise to her boys as well ...

 

Blood Brothers is not an overly explicit movie ... but it's mighty sick all the same - and I mean that in a good way! Basically, it's a trip into the minds of two very different but very disturbed individuals, and shows events exclusively through their eyes, and thanks to a subtle direction and great performances makes you actually root for them, even "like" them to a point. That's not to say the film supports their actions in any way or promotes violence, quite the contrary, it's just awesome in fucking with the audience's minds - and thanks to proper pacing and a twisting and turning plot, it keeps the viewers on top of their seats as well.
