First Impressions

The trailer for Blood Bride serves as an appetizer for the main course, its arrival on the 19th of February. Although this promotional video has a running time of twenty-six (26) seconds it is adequate enough of time to interest for the viewer. The opening frame encapsulates the plot of the film and builds with random clips that follow. The focus in this trailer centers on a distraught husband and his comatose wife. With the latter, am assuming the wife is comatose this may no be the case.

A life and death choice is at risk taking the film into a lugubrious state. This presentation contradicts the dark comedy definition provided in the official press release. There’s something ominous at play and it involves the attending physician. The trailer hints on devious actions committed, whether these are fragments of the imagination or a real life situation remains to be explore in the film. A sequence of scantly clad nurses partake in a disoriented dream-like manner. From my viewpoint it was challenging to follow the Horror element with these gorgeous women arresting my attention.
