The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Hyena's Blood (2014)

Starring: Jon Lange
Director: Nicolas Caicoya

The newly formed DEA tries to stop the poppy trade from Mexico, but a rouge former agent does his best to make sure the drugs get the United States

My Take:
I received an email about a month ago from the director with information about his short film. I agreed to take a look at it.
While not horror, there is an exploitation quality to the short and a decent amount of bloodshed. It looks fantastic too. It would be nice to see this as a full length feature to help explore the historical background of the DEA and the Mexican poppy trade. As well as flushing out the characters more. However, I was quite impressed with the lead actor. If you happen to see this one around give the thirty minutes viewing.

Rating: In the middle
