Movie Review: “Aaron’s Blood” Is A Vampire Thriller With A Conscience

“You’ll certainly be smitten with the bloody conscience of a young man who truly wants to be better, but doesn’t want to hurt anyone in the process.”


 

Single father Aaron fights to save his 12-year-old hemophiliac son after becoming infected with vampire blood.

“Aaron’s Blood” is about a teenage hemophiliac Tate (Trevor Stovall), who receives a transfusion and then turns into a blood-sucking vampire with a conscience. Tate, who is being raised by a single dad, Aaron (James Martinez), seems to think he has everything under control including the bullying from his schoolmates and how he reconciles his own illness. While his dad seems to have done everything in his power to stay on top of things with regard to his son’s illness, he doesn’t know the whole story behind Tate’s problems at school and the new set of problems that have arisen due to his receiving bad blood.

A local priest who meets Aaron in the chapel at a moment of vulnerability offers to pray for Tate one on one and in that time, manages to transform Tate’s life by turning him into a vampire. Unbeknownst to Aaron, he must save Tate’s life through the taking of other’s lives. This father and son duo, go through many growing pains while establishing an unbreakable bond that brings them closer together while pushing them deeper into a crime-filled cure necessary to combat the effect of the illness.

This 116 minutes of vampire theology has peaks and valleys that make it an interesting piece of work that is strong on relationship-building yet weak on a truly thrilling vampire feasibility scale. Catch it while you can, now on Video On Demand and Digital HD. You’ll certainly be smitten with the bloody conscience of a young man who truly wants to be better, but doesn’t want to hurt anyone in the process.

Check out my Q&A that digs a little deeper into the Father/Son relationship in the film and the real-life relationship between writer/director, Tommy Stovall and his actor son (Trevor Stovall).
