Phoebe (Joelle Farrow) has to learn hard for an exam, but she could really do with the babysitting money from Barb (Tara Spencer-Nairn) and Gill (Michael Therrriault), and since their daughter Grace (Maya Misaljevic) is such a darling to babysit, she's also desperate to keep them as clients - desperate enough to send her boyfriend Tom (Shawn Roberts), a professional wrestler, in her place. Now he's actually less than sure that that's such a good idea, since he has little to zero experience with children, but Grace is really darling enough to make him comfortable before long - that is, until they're attacked by a couple of home invaders. Thanks for his experience in wrestling, Tom manages to scare the one off and capture the other, but soon they have to realize there are more of the gang out there. Then Phoebe arrives with her learning partners Mike (Kelly Penner) and Christine (Samantha Helt), and Mike's brutally murdered before he even makes it to the house. Tom, Grace, Phoebe and Christine soon lock themselves into a bedroom, but it's not long before Christine loses her shit - and that's even before they all learn that the homeinvaders are not actually masked perverts as they initially thought but demons from hell wanting Grace and Phoebe for some blood ritual, and they won't stop at murder to get to them. Then also Gill and Barb arrive back home, and their reaction to the very bloody goings-on - is not in the least what one would expect ...


Here for Blood is above everything else a loving throwback to 80s horror, with lots of gore, mostly practical effects, a very far-fetched plot with a faint H.P. Lovecraft-vibe, quite some macho-posturing, and a tendency to not take itself too seriously. But what makes Here for Blood really is that it isn't just an hommage to genre cinema of old but actually puts the focus on telling a story with heart carried by fleshed out characters - including a very fallible macho in the lead -, brought to life by a dynamic directorial effort clearly at home in the 2020s rather than the 1980s. And all of this makes for a really cool piece of horror cinema.


... and if this has gotten you at all interested, this movie hits theatres and on February 9th, 2024.
