Edit Did You Know? She goes to these addicts' anonymous meetings, I'm assuming. One night, after a run, she comes across one of the guys from her meeting, who offers her pills.
She takes these pills and, for one reason or another, Christopher the vampire kills the guy who gave her the pills and turns Ellie into a vampire.
I have literally no idea why he did this. Maybe the idea was that these pills were gonna make Ellie overdose and die. But there was no indication that she was about to overdose at any moment.
She was just stumbling around, tripped and hit her head on her car door. That's about it and Christopher just chose to turn her.
Maybe he saw a weak woman he could manipulate, but I don't know where he got that from. I suppose that's neither here nor there.
This is when the movie switches to be about Ellie's transformation and her growing bloodthirst. Kyle, upon seeing his mother's strange behavior, believes she's taking pills again and he's had about enough of it.
This is where the film's issues start to make themselves apparent. Firstly, it's a movie about addiction and replacing one addiction with another.
Then it's about Ellie's transformation and her resisting the urges she has. Later, it switches to Kyle and his reaction towards everything that's going on as Christopher, at his mother's behest, stays in their house to help her with the transition.
Christopher being, honestly, kind of an annoying dick and trying to take over Ellie's life. Not to mention the family dynamic with Kyle, listening to his girlfriend's advice, sticking with his mother through thick and thin.
I don't know what this movie wants to be, literally, at any point whatsoever. There's no narrative focus, it's just what the movie wants to be at any given time.
If they want it to be about Ellie's transformation, then Ellie will take all the focus and her children will barely be seen.
But if they want it to be about Kyle and his dedication to the family after, originally, not wanting to deal with his mother's issues, then I'll be about that.
Or if they want it to be about Kyle's 'feud' with Christopher and Kyle trying to find a way to successfully kill Christopher, then fuck all else.
Everything in this movie happens in a vacuum. Nothing else matters when they're heading down one path at that particular point in time. That path is no longer useful, they move on to another one as if the one they had just gotten off didn't even exist.
It's a really poorly structured and constructed movie. Not to mention inconsistent and the editing, oh my god, the editing is just awful.
Sometimes things happen and, honestly, I don't even know how they came to be. There's a moment, near the end, where Ellie uses her powers to push Christopher away from her son from the hallway to the wall of a nearby room and I literally have no clue as to what happened or what Ellie did to push Chris away.
Did she sneeze on him? I don't know and the editing is to blame for that. That's not the only example where the editing was disorienting or ineffective, but it's the most egregious example.
Let's move on and talk about Christopher as a character, shall we? This guy is so annoying, to the point that I didn't think he was an effective villain.
I have nothing against James Ransone, he's a perfectly solid actor, but his portrayal of the character left a lot to be desired.
He's trying so hard to be a cool, sexy, mysterious vampire and it just fails miserably. I'm reminded of these magicians like Criss Angel, who try to be rockstars at the same time as they're magicians and it just doesn't work.
Nothing against magicians, of course, but it's a dorky profession. So trying to be all cool and shit while you're doing magic tricks is just a douche-y thing to do.
And that's what comes to mind when I see Ransone's performance here. He's trying way too hard to be dark and cool and all he reminds me of is if Johnny Knoxville had a younger brother.
His performance just doesn't work here and, honestly, the characterization isn't even great to begin with. But, in my opinion, this is more a case of the actor just not working out.
If this is the type of character you want, then cast someone who's more natural and subtle at being cool. In many ways, this plays out like a more serious Fright Night, without any of Fright Night's fun qualities, of course.
The movie really fails to provide appropriate thrills. Ellie kills some people, but the movie really doesn't show any gore whatsoever. Like it's almost scared of being too violent.
And, in a movie like this, where nothing has any rhyme or reason, the least you could do is give us a good amount of gore. Here's the funny thing, in the climax, which we'll get to shortly, Ellie and Christopher have a fight.
But, idiotically enough, you don't see a SINGLE SECOND of that fight. Kyle and his sister, Amy, are outside in the hallway standing in front of the room where the fight is taking place.
The doors are closed, so all you hear are the sounds of the fight and the furniture, dressers and shit just moving all around the room.
This is why we can't have nice things. The thing is that this scene, if handled correctly, could have been the best part about this movie, but they literally held back on the one thing that would have given this miserable movie some entertainment.
Perhaps miserable is overstating the point, but this is just a bad movie and I wanted at least ONE positive to talk about. But, nope, there's nothing.
This brings us to the third act and how awful it is. The problem with it is the fact that there's so much shit to resolve in a really short time span.
Ellie finally stands up to Chris after she finds that he threatened her son, but by this point, Chris had already taken Kyle and thrown him off the second floor of the house to the floor.
Ellie knew how uncomfortable Kyle was around Chris and Chris was, essentially, a threatening presence in her son's life and her daughter's, of course, but she's out of the house for parts of this.
The problem isn't that Ellie stood up to Chris, it's that what was the final straw for her was not even close to the worst thing the guy ever did.
Ellie, a recovering drug addict, has just moved to a new city with her two teenage children. She has struggled to stay sober in the past and is determined to make it work this time, finding a stable job and regularly attending her meetings.
Unfortunately, new friends, a new job, and the chance of a new life, can't keep Ellie from slipping once again.
Her life changes when she meets Christopher - a different kind of addict - which forces her daughter and son to accept a new version of Ellie.
Principal photography on the film began in October in Louisville, Kentucky. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women.
Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment even if the animals are just really good actors.
Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones.
Go figure! Family Blood is a very simple story that just works. A slow-burner and an interesting new twist on the vampire genre.
Be sure to check it out!Director: Sonny Mallhi. And vampires are definitely part of the horror genre. James Ransone. Crazy Credits.
