Minion Max’s review published on Letterboxd:
Reading that synopsis, I went into Blood Beat expecting to be amused by a nutty Friday the 13th copycat slapped together by amateur filmmakers in rural Wisconsin. I was not prepared to become fascinated by an avant-garde Lynchian nightmare with a dash of Hausu. When a movie interprets a woman's sexual release with a ghost samurai rampage, and that's NOT the weirdest thing that happens, you know you've discovered something special.
I'm heartbroken to learn that Fabrice A. Zaphiratos never directed another feature; there's a good 30-minute sequence towards the end of the second act which is actually sublime film making. If only we could see the mentally unstable direction his career would inevitably go.
