Blood From a Stone

Slamdance Film Festival

Director: Bill Palmer

Screening with The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu, Blood from a Stone takes the best of every 1980s action movie that ever rocked your balls flat and smashes it all into an eight-minute celebration of the golden days of macho action.  Our hero, Sean Sharpstone, speaks (literally) entirely in one-liners and uses handcuffs as an offensive weapon.  Like Sly and Arny and the bunch, Sean is a police officer in theory only, and rightly considers a wake of severed, blasted, mangled corpses to be a sure sign of justice properly doled out.  Cheers to you, Mr. Sharpstone.  May the rest of us, one day, come full circle and begin taking our action movies a little less seriously once again.
