| My Review Of "Blood Rush"
The story is a steady, entertaining nightmare that takes the zombie flick into the viral outbreak/mutant region of the idea. Crazed blood thirsty cannibals terrorize the small community which is half "running for their life" and half "oblivious" to the situation. It provides for a continuously entertaining film that has moments of classic thrills, gore and dark satirical humor. "Blood Rush" creates a story arc that moves smoothly from start to finish and presents a cool indie chiller.

The special effect and soundtrack/sound effects used in "Blood Rush" are on the lower end but shot in a way that works. And the scenes that have no way around being noticeably cheaper, than what the crew would have liked, are done in a satirical manner, of amusement, that make those moments work as well. The soundtrack isn't all that memorable but does allow for some emotional carryover between the story, acting and audience. I just feel it could have had more energy put in with stronger music to really create a solid viewing experience. The sound effects are standard but do well creating a eerie atmosphere both in the dramatic scenes and the action sequences.

Overall "Blood Rush" is a good, indie horror that is entertaining. I liked the viral outbreak approach to the zombie-esque story telling. The transition from normal everyday citizen to crazed cannibal is far more terrifying to me personally than the dead rising up from the grave. The film has some minor drag when it comes to dialog, and dramatic interaction between characters, but not enough to cripple the film completely. "Blood Rush" manages to be fun and mature which isn't easily done. A lot of times a film's satirical elements can seem juvenile or the mature structure of the story falls flat. With "Blood Rush" things work and the story evolves both as entertaining fun, and gory chiller.
