Bloodthirsty is one of the more unique films to come out of 2020. It’s a werewolf movie that takes place in the music industry, the world that was thrown into is a vegan songwriter performed by Lauren Beatty who gives a surreal performance that is rarely seen in a creature feature.
I really appreciated this version of a werewolf movie because it just wasn’t about being a werewolf movie like many are. The supporting cast also was written out very well, it’s really rare to see this in any horror film let alone a creature feature. Where most in the past focus on gore this one kinda flips the script on its head.
I really hope creature features in the future take notes from Bloodthirsty as it really different and it may upset some of our viewers until the huge payoff at the end which is spectacular. The synopsis is below for those interested.
Synopsis: A vegan singer songwriter goes to work on her second album with notorious music producer Vaughn Daniels. But as the album progresses, she starts to transform into a powerful beast with a thirst for blood, meat, and the hunt.
