HORROR AND SONS – Review: Blood Stains (2018) – A Short Film by Blake Vaz

Regular readers of our site (and I surely hope that’s most of you that are reading the site right now) may recall that I reviewed writer, director, & producer Blake Vaz’s “haunted house meets modern technology” short film L.U.N.A. back in January of this year. If not, now would be a perfect time for you to go back and read our positive review of that film, especially before it gets expanded into a (planned) feature-length at a later date. Don’t worry! We will wait for you to finish reading that piece before progressing any further with this one.

(Yeah, we aren’t actually waiting for those folks.)

Now, I’m thrilled to present you with another, albeit older, short film from this talented up-and-coming filmmaker. No, this is NOT a REVIEW for another of Vaz’s films. For this entry, we’re thrilled to present you with the actual film itself.

From 2018, the award-winning* Blood Stains tells the story of Laz (Hansel Ramirez, who appeared on “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” and “Mayans M.C.“), a struggling Mexican musician desperate to get his big break and make it big. The monotony of continuously having to play at the shittiest of venues finally takes a toll on his bandmates, leading to their calling it quits and returning to normal lives and normal jobs. Laz’s determination to succeed also begins to impact his personal life, with his girlfriend (L.U.N.A. star Fernanda Romero) even conceding that it may just be time for him to let his life-long dream fade away.
