Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust, Rene Perez’s Horror Slasher
Playing With Dolls: BloodLust Film Details
Title: Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust
Director: Rene Perez
Writer: Rene Perez
Release Date: 1st, November 2016
A group of aspiring actors are chosen for a reality horror TV show. In the show, they must survive being chased by a killer. The program is filmed with scores of tiny cameras, in a cabin and the surrounding forest.
What the contestants don’t know is that this murderer is a real killer and the television program is a ruse. Deep in an underground bunker, a psychotic voyeur watches as life and death play out for his amusement. The only prize, here, is survival!
Playing with Dolls: Bloodlust focuses on a desperate single mom and the promise of quick cash. The reality is that Stina (Karin Brauns) has been tricked into performing for a reclusive sadist.
In 2015, Rene Perez released Playing With Dolls, a Horror Slasher, where a serial killer is released from an insane asylum to continue his rampage. In November, the sequel, Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust will make it’s premiere.
The trailer plays like an underground gore Horror Slasher with a little nudity and a lot of violence and gore. The synopsis calls for a group of contestants, who are plunged into a Horror Reality TV Show, or so they think. They are actually victims of a sadist.
This synopsis sounds quite familiar. In fact, Bruno Vaussenat released Dark Web just recently in March that has a similar premise as Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust.
The premise is simple: a group of people who are kidnapped are plunged into a dangerous hunting game that has been created by a group of sadistic people who broadcast the game live on the dark web.
Of course Playing With Dolls: Bloodlust takes a slightly different path. For one, there seems to be a lot more gore in Perez’s film, which reminds me of a splatter torture film. In fact, the title of the film and the movie poster art actually reminds me of an underground splatter film.
These kinds of films are in heavy circulation in the Horror circuit because, when they are not ridiculously cheesy, they work. The intensity of the violence, the extremity of the gore, and the bold no limits approach is definitely a bonus and serves as a mental, psychological cinematic challenge for the hardcore movie aficionados.
