Milton (Milo Cawthorne) is the little genius who'se forte has always
been chemistry - but then he got too smart for his own good, and
eventually, him setting up a meth lab on school campus got him into
Skyler's (Olivia Tennet) a street-smart kid who
has seen too much shit for her own good, but surviving through it has
taught her how to get what she wants ... and now she wants a meth cook,
and Mitlon's top of her list - so she seduces him, right before telling
him her boyfriend, the psychopath Russell (Ari Boyland) will break them
both free because he needs a good meth cook - and Milton's the best there
Once they have made it to safety to a cabin in the woods, Russell
starts to play his psycho games with Milton and Skyler, which come to a
climax the next day when he wants to shoot Milton right after he has
cooked enough meth ... but then Skyler has unloaded his gun, and she and
Russell kill Russell instead.
The very next morning though turns out the
very last morning, with Russell still alive ... for them to kill again, as
is the case on the morning after that, and they have to come to the
conclusion they're stuck in a time loop. And the longer they are stuck in
the loop, and the harder they try to get out, the less certain is Milton
he can even trust Skyler - especially when he finds out before she and
Milton started to kill Russell each day, there was a period when she and
Russell killed him ...
Ok, of course I have to mention the
obvious (and a non-award goes to those who have already guessed), the
premise of this movie isn't at all unlike Groundhog Day - but with
that mentioned, the two movies don't resemble one another at all, while
the earlier film was a sweet comedy, Blood Punch is basically a
horror thriller that puts a film noir twist on things - and is quite
successful in doing so, too, as this approach very much fits the fatality
of the story. And one also feels obliged to mention the film's cynic yet
sarcastic and thoroughly macabre undercurrents. All this is carried by a
direction that's subtle enough to let the story unfold on its own merits,
and by a trio of leads that manage to impress and quickly make one forget
they had previously worked together on Power Rangers R.P.M..
very enjoyable genre flick, actually!
