This was really bad. This could only be worse if Joel Schumacher directed!

Where's Buffie when you need her?

Response from Head RAZZberry: OOPS! "Buffy" was a VAMPIRE slayer, and the characters in BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE are werewolves. Or did you mean "Buffie," the little girl who was alwaze hugging her Mrs. Beasley doll on TV's FAMILY AFFAIR? A movie depicting that Buffie torn to shreds by voracious werewolves is something I would pay money to see!

How about, for a new category, this movie gets nominated for "WORST TITLE". It probably won't happen...but it's a possibilty!

I also agree about the awful acting of Martinez. Its a shame too, because I saw him in Unfaithful and I thought he did a job in that movie. Poor Blood and Chocolate, I read the book as a kid and this movie was... There aren't any words really to describe what this was.

I took a day after I posted the above to consider Blawed and Chuck-It-Up's "Razzie"-ness, and it didn't take long for me to decide that, yes, it is indeed very "Razzie".  Besides everything I've already mentioned and much I didn't, there's few things worse than a horror movie created in all seriousness that has zero scares.   What more can be said?

THIS CONTAINS MILD SPOILERS

"When we are children, we believe in magic."  And Blood and Chocolate would have us believe more in magic than in good scenes and dialogue.

Blood and Chocolate is based on what many say is a good book, its title derived from Herman Hesse's Steppenwolf:  "I have the taste of blood and chocolate in my mouth, the one as hateful as the other."  If MGM's marketing department reminded people that Steppenwolf wasn't just a 60s band with two great songs, maybe more of us would have seen Blood and Chocolate rather than scoff at an otherwise stupid movie title. 

But that's not the only way Blood and Chocolate failed to involve the audience with the story.  The special effects sucked. The werewolves glowed as they morphed from humans to wolves, often wearing clothes, yet when they return to human, they're naked.  Too many scenes had no life at all.  Just when bad apple Rafe finally decides to abide by the rules of the werewolf pack, he gets killed.  The film relies on Agnes Bruckner's acting, and she has several brilliant scenes, but in the end she doesn’t carry the picture.  But even if Bruckner was great in every moment, the climax is so full of holes nothing can save it, and the ending is the worst letdown of all.

Not surprisingly, many people say the book is better than the movie, but in this case, the negative reactions are so strong that I feel screenwriters Kruger and Landon and director Katja von Garnier left out both the spirit and the best parts of the book.  There were some good points to the movie (many of Bruckner’s scenes, Hugh Dancy’s performance, Bryan Dick’s performance).  But the rest was less rather than more.  It makes one wonder why the screenwriters and director strayed from the source material.  There’s little here to sink our teeth into.

I guess if John puts Worst Excuse of Horror Entertainment on The Ballot, you might have to include The Messengers too...

maybe we can start a new category, Worst Excuse for Horror Entertainment. This movie would qualify in that forum for sure. Watch out, they'll be coming to eat your chocolate. Make sure you eat all your chocolate before the werewolves do!

I asked my brother and his friend Dan, who work at a Movie Theater here in Ventura where B & C is currently playing,  if people have been asking for their Money back. They said no, all they say is how awful it is. I was comparing it to American Cyborg - Steel Warrior. Well, the acting part of it...

Poor MGM, it was a great studio during the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's and yet 60's. Now it only distributes crap that nobody else wants to -- Films with big budgets and catastrophic box office. In 2006, MGM put its lion on such boredoms & failures as Material Girls, Arthur and the Invisibles, Bobby, Harsh Times, Flyboys and Black Christmas. And it's starting this year with BLOOD & CHOCOLATE! The studio urgently needs its logo on a good film, with a decent box office run. Even Rocky Balboa wasn't that good, and even though Casino Royale was good, the studio shared credit on it with Sony-Columbia Pictures. 

Response from Head RAZZberry: And you're forgetting that M-G-M's Leo logo was also on the head of one of our most RAZZIE-nominated titles of 2006: BASICALLY, IT STINKS, TOO. How the once mighty have fallen...can you imagine Louis B. Mayer letting his studio's banner grace a silly, salacious piece of you-know-what like B-I 2??

I went to Boxofficemojo.com, and it has Blood and Chocolate coming in 12th place, and it did $2,103,000.

Response from Head RAZZberry: You got the estimated B.O. Figure right, but not the ranking -- B &C ended up in 15th place. Considering the promotional budget behind it, that's actually quite pitiful!!

But why should you care what I think?
