Saw Conrad Janis' BAD BLOOD where he directs with great panache this Brechtien 'Pas de Deux' Grisly Thriller while starring as 'Lawrence' the Eminence Grise of this Secret Sect, where the gruesome, yet seemingly innocent rituals he and the wickedly sinister 3-time Academy Award nominee Piper Laurie who 'really gets her teeth into this one', tear down all preconceived notions of FEAR. They are so seemingly begnin they do warm the Screen, and absolutely Chill the Spine. I loved The Film!!!
The Color defies description, it mingles a Technicolor look with a retro Film Noir blend, while the writing, (written by Maria Grimm who also co-stars, and whose story is based on TRUE EVENTS she experienced in Casablanca as a child), does follow the style of this genre but does so with gusto, wit and without the obvious use of gratuitous sex scenes, instead, the script and Janis' legerdemain directing guides you into 'feeling' high romance then severs your peace with a building, repulsive fear. It has style, wit, an actual storyline, character development, and don't worry it has more than a mouthful, if you'll pardon the spoiler, of Gorgeous and talented Beauties and Heroic Hunky guys, BLOOD and THRILLS. I enclose a description I found on one of the Trailers on youtube at: Bad Blood Trailer Conrad Janis---well worth checking out, and pushing this film into the theaters---it deserves it.

BAD BLOOD (TRAILER) Terrifying, fast paced, preview trailer of soon to be released Horror film!!!
"Writer Producer Maria Janis ' new chiller 'BAD BLOOD', with its stunning Golden Era Cinema Retro 'Look' & based on actual events she experienced in Casablanca, Morocco, Stars 3-time Academy Award Nominee ('CARRIE') and Argento's 'TRAUMA' Legendary Piper Laurie in the mouth-watering role of Millie, the matriarch of a mysterious enclave and Conrad Janis as 'Lawrence' (Mork & Mindy) as the classically chilling charmer & 'Eminence Grise' of this sinister secret sect. Janis also deftly Helms this taut yet wry Psychological Thriller in a terrifying sleight of hand tribute to such classics as Hitchcocks' & Agatha Christies Oeuvres. Also starring Bret Anthony (3's Company remake), Jilon Ghai ('Boo'), Ashley Gorrell (One Tree Hill), Sita Young ('Drive-Thru'), Sofia Karstens (Medium), Rachelle Wood (Rules of Engagement), Steven Christopher Parker (Juno & E.R. Star), Chuck Hittinger (Grendel) and Cori Bright as a fresh-faced, heart-breakingly vulnerable Meg Ryan type in the role of Sandy...a 20 year-old college student who, with her school friends goes on a group Holiday to Tahoe and along the way are thrust into a DUEL-LIKE road rage scenario and then unsuspectingly 'herded' to Millie's & Lawrence's Macabre & hidden world where the seemingly benign, old-fashioned and kindly 'folks' don't care much for the "modern", and where their yearly mysterious rituals become the stuff of nightmares. Against this background Sandy nonetheless falls desperately in love with Lawrence's grandson Jim (David Jenkins), (C.S.I. Dawson's Creek) who embodies the heroically romantic Panache of a young dashing Brad Pitt. Though their love is real and magical, the rift between their worlds is impassable, and unable to withstand its horrific pull Jim's ultimate betrayal subjects Sandy to such terror that she suffers a total mental and emotional schism that separates her soul from her body, leaving her between two world...neither of which she can cope with."

Bad Blood...The Hunger Previews title on Jan 3rd 2009 @ Fine Arts Theater during B.H. Hi-Def Film Festival to Rave audience Response

Conrad Janis' Bad Blood...The Hunger, finds Famished, Fantasmagorical, Frightened Fans fiendishly Fantasizing over his Film in which he both Directs and Stars opposite 3-time Academy Award Nominee Piper Laurie. B.B...THE HUNGER will be released in theaters in 2009 simultaneous with Janis and wife Maria's production of the next Thriller in their 3 picture slate for 2009-20010. One of the offerings is: CALL WAITING, the other is: SCENE OF THE CRIME, and the 3rd is a romantic musical comedy drama called: Riches to Ragtime. The dynamic duo of Maria and Conrad Janis have a 17 picture slate that will be working around the economic woes of Hollywood, and the great demand of depression minded fans. They hope to bring these films to select theaters who will work with them to keep the Box Office Tickets much lower than they are currently asking in order to keep hope alive for The Hollywood Magic they love so much, and to help those who need a little entertainment, the ability to enjoy films without having to mortgage their homes. It's a radical concept but they are willing to hold fast for a like-minded distributor who will care about the audience as much as they do for profits. What a concept! Bravo to them.
