“Director and co-writer Patrick von Barkenberg makes a stylish debut with Blood Paradise…begins as more of a mystery, as our protagonist arrives as a stranger in a strange land before descending into a tale of madness and psychological terror As a character, Robin Richards is well-realized and relatable as a fish out of water in a new environment. She is not prepared for the ordeal she is about to be put through, but shows great strength under pressure. This is a quiet, deliberately paced movie that takes a while to get where it’s going, but steadily builds an uncomfortable atmosphere before it hits its stride. ” – HorrorDNA
