Bleeders (1997)
Directed by Peter Svatek

Starring Roy Dupuis Rutger Hauer

This film might be of interest to viewers seeking something a little out of the ordinary.

A man returns to his hometown on an isolated island community in hopes of finding a cure for his rare form of blood disease. Meanwhile, strange troll- like creatures who live underground on the island have begun to claim human victims after their usual food supply in the local graveyard is cut off when the cemetery is relocated. There is actually a connection between the two incidents, but to say any more would give away too much of the plot. Dan O'Bannon ("Return of the Living Dead") co-wrote the screenplay which starts out rather ponderously but builds momentum and throws in some surprises as the film progresses.

The monsters, created by Adrien Morot are creepy looking, especially the ones who propel their legless bodies by walking on their stumpy arms. Rutger Hauer, as the local doctor, is the only familiar face in this Canadian production that's off-beat enough to be at least moderately enjoyable.

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks! breast actives reviews
