REVENGE picks up immediately following the events that closed out BLOOD CULT, this time following the family members of one of the cult's victims as they set off to unlock the group's secrets. It isn't long before they become wrapped up in a new set of murders at the hands of the cult's powerful leaders! Though this second entry delivers decidedly better acting and production values over the first film, it is still just another poorly executed schlocker with little to offer the average Horror fan. The betacam filming does create a nostalgic aesthetic that is ingrained in 80s Horror, making for a huge improvement over the cheap camcorder look. It would seem that half of the budget was spent on a throwaway cameo by genre great John Carradine in the role of the cult leader, since the rest of the cast suffers from the same amateur acting that riddled the original BLOOD CULT. Surprisingly, the gore has been reeled back this round, leaving the empty script locked in to a tedious and uneventful murder mystery with no payoff in the end. Unfortunately, a polished turd is still a turd, and REVENGE fails to make the grade.
