Plot: A couple of college students decide to sign up for pharmaceutical testing of a new allergy drug to make some extra cash for their spring break trip. They quickly discover their two week ... Runtime: 96 mins Release Date: 10 May 2012
In 2006, a medical trial at a London hospital went terribly wrong; six young men suffered grotesque side-effects, and one needed all his toes and several fingertips amputated. Whether or not "Bloodwork" was inspired by that horrific happenstance, this one works, big time.Two students volunteer for a two week medical trial attracted by a payment of over three thousand dollars. They are led to believe this is a routine experiment developing a common or garden medicine, but of course it is not. Rather the researchers are testing a wonder drug that has magical healing properties. <more>
Suffice it to say as with the aforementioned Northwick Park trial these volunteers experience unexpected side-effects, in particular of a psychological nature. Well, perhaps not totally unexpected.When one of our heroes puts two and two together, he wants out, but the other participants are bribed to stay on, and he is falsely imprisoned. The scientist running the project is told she must expedite matters, and of course this can only make things worse."Bloodwork" has it all: drama, humour, the odd bare breast, action, morality play, science fiction and horror all rolled into one, complete with an ambiguous ending.
Incisive Cautionary Tale and Intense Horror (by jlthornb51)
Well done horror film that blows the lid off Big Pharmaceutical as well. Travis Van Winkle gives a superb performance as a college student participating in an allergy study, placing himself in the hands of sinister representatives of an evil drug company. The study is one of the most diabolical ever conceived in cinema and reflects major truths regarding the industry. Trish Helfer is stunning and does some of her best work in years as the attracts Van Winkle's character to the program with completely evil intent. The tension builds quickly and the horrors which ensue are almost too much <more>
to comprehend in their terror. Overall, a fine film that is not without its flaws but which is much more than just a horror movie. What this production has to say about society's dominance by pharmaceutical fascists is profoundly true and needs to be exposed.
All For The Love Of Money, Not Science. (by buckikris)
I never heard of this movie until I saw it on Redbox, it caught my interest and I rented it. The movie is about to College students, Greg Travis Van Winkle and Rob John Bregar , who take part in a pharmaceutical study. A new drug for allergies, it needs to be tested; and the pharmaceutical company needs it's Guiana pigs. The roommates want to take a trip to Amsterdam for Spring Break so they sign up regardless. I would too, for 3000 dollars who wouldn't. The drug is RXZ-19; and the viewer will find that out later in the film when they are at the clinic facility. Once they are there <more>
they are searched, for alcohol, cell phones, and any personal devices. The personal items are are stored until the trial is over. They meet others there, Nigel who is a trial freak, other students, one ex-con, and an older lady are there. The trials begin, with blood tests, Aaron who is a Phlebotomist comes around to Rob to get blood. Aaron gets the crap scared out of him when he is just doing his job. The trials begin with blood work, drug stages, and observations. Dr. Wilcox Tricia Helfer is a Dr, that is going to push the envelop with this study. The study is usually in 5 doses, but she is going the distance to do more than 5 doses. If you know anything about drug trials half the group gets the drug ; and the other half placebo. This is where I think they got it wrong with the study; usually more than one person gets the sugar pill. In this study they all get the juice except Greg. He is curious about what is going on; and goes to Dr. Wilcox's office. Once there he uncovers animals that have undergone serious surgeries; and wonders what is going on. Just then Dr Wilcox walks in and explains what she has done; and tells him what this drug is capable of doing. She finds out he is on the placebo, suffering from no effects of the medicine. He is normal, has no transformations; and is grossed out by rotting food, dead animals, bugs, and E.T.C.. The others are not and are turning into zombie like creatures. Greg truly finds out the effects of the drug, a drug that can heal a person in no time at all, a regenerative drug. When Greg finds out, he wants out; but the others don't. Dr. Wilcox is willing to pay 8000 to the trial subjects and staff. This is were she pushes the limits regardless of the outcome. She gives everyone 2 extra doses and the group becomes more violent and dependent on it, it gets to where the test subjects what more and more of the drug. The group starts turning into zombie like creatures capable of anything. In the end she realizes something must be done and starts the detox, Rob, Greg's friend is the first. While Rob is going though detox, the remaining subjects are out of control, killing the staff; and keeping Greg from leaving the premises. Greg finally sees Aaron, The Phlebotomist, and Aaron tells him he is still in the clinic. I have no idea why Eric Roberts is in this film except to show up, look menacing; and kill the only person Aaron that can help Rob; and Greg. The movie has some far out stuff; but other than that it is worth the 1.00. In Conclusion, Greg saves Rob they get out and finally find a car to take them to safety. The car is driven by Aaron, and both of them think he is O.K., WRONG. The ending could have been better; but this was a cool movie for a B horror film. I would recommend it for anyone who likes great old school horror flicks. This is one of todays horror flicks that has plot, and plenty of thrills.THX, Kris L. CocKayne
