In the Blood

Hilariously unaware of its camp appeal, writer-helmer-editor Lou Peterson's "In the Blood," a serial-killer-on-campus genre hoot, plays one silly note after another. Pic couldn't be phonier in its depiction of college life, yet it was made at Columbia U.'s film program with grim-faced determination and seriousness.

With: Tyler Hanes, James Katharine Flynn, Robert Dionne, Carlos Alberto Valencia, Alison Fraser, Graeme Malcolm, Corinne Russell, Maria Bova.

Hilariously unaware of its camp appeal — and thus making it all the more appealing — writer-helmer-editor Lou Peterson’s “In the Blood,” a serial-killer-on-campus genre hoot, plays one silly note after another. Pic couldn’t be phonier in its depiction of college life, yet it was made at Columbia U.’s film program with grim-faced determination and seriousness. Gay-fest auds will laugh it up, and tell all their friends when it plays on deep cable.

Pretty blonde corpses are starting to pile up on campus, and the dean (Graeme Malcolm) is worried. More so, it appears, than pretty blonde Jessica (James Katharine Flynn) who fits the profile and is fending off the advances of shallow fratboy Michael (Robert Dionne). Jessica’s sexually confused brother Cassidy (Tyler Hanes) has visions of his blood-soaked sister every time he ogles a male body — leading to some breathtakingly funny exchanges with his psychic Aunt Helen (Alison Fraser, with eyes bulging) and lusty encounters with a gay Latin hustler (Carlos Alberto Valencia).
