AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Bliss may be too narratively and visually intense for less adventurous viewers, but should trigger the titular state in those with a taste for hard-hitting horror.

Movie Info

Known for her dark and macabre artwork, painter Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison) is in a professional rut. Unable to finish her newest commissioned work, Dezzy looks to reignite her creative juices by letting loose-as in, taking every drug in sight and tearing through raucous house parties and heavy metal bars. After a few nights spent with her debauchery-loving friends Courtney (Tru Collins) and Ronnie (Rhys Wakefield), though, Dezzy notices changes within herself. On the positive side, she's finally painting again, but she's also developing a strange desire for blood. As someone who has never been able to control her vices in the first place, Dezzy is quickly and violently consumed by this bloodlust.

It's 80 tedious minutes of shouting, swearing, nudity and gore, cut together with the deftness of a chainsaw.

There's a relentless shrillness at work here that makes the movie more grating than exciting.

September 27, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It is certainly not for everyone, but those eager for a walk on the wild side will find those expectations fully sated.

Bliss approaches its aesthetic with a straight-faced intensity, pummeling the viewer with woozy handheld closeups and violent bursts of montage until you feel like maybe you might have been dosed somehow on your way into the theater.

If you ever want a handy argument against the cinema of sensation, hysteria and excess, then Bliss is it.

June 26, 2020 | Full Review…

Bliss gets the point across while also being the most unique and interesting take on vampires in forever, this isn't a stab at reinventing the genre, it's a molotov cocktail lighting the whole damn thing on fire.
