Back in 2011 I had the pleasure of meeting director Marcel Walz and actress Annika Strauss at The European Weekend of Horrors in Germany. They were lovely people, extremely passionate about their chosen pursuit and very friendly, so it pains me to say that Seed 2 (AKA Blood Valley: Seed's Revenge), directed by Walz and starring Strauss, and co-written by the pair, is far from a great film (to put it mildly).
A sequel to Uwe Boll's Seed (2006), Seed 2 follows four girls, Christine, Olivia, Barbara and Claire (played by Natalie Scheetz, Christa Campbell, Sarah Hayden, and Strauss), who, after a wild hen night in Vegas, run into a family of killers in the desert, one of whom is none other than Max Seed (Nick Principe), the psycho from the first film.
What follows is a series of torture scenes involving some fairly brutal violence (gore courtesy of director/SFX guy Ryan Nicholson), but what makes the movie a total let down is the woefully unoriginal script (which borrows heavily from The Hills Have Eyes and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), the equally dire performances, and, worst of all, the pointless non-linear style that, rather than add intrigue, simply makes the whole thing a confusing and thoroughly irritating mess.
Sorry Marcel, and sorry Annika, but I rate Seed 2 a pitiful 3 out of 10 (solely for the gore), minus half a point for having Claire wander the desert despite being run through with a serrated knife and nailed to the ground, and minus another half for leaving me scratching my head in puzzlement: exactly who was Caroline Williams supposed to be? Seed's mother? In which case, who was The Officer (Manoush) and why did Max Seed snap her neck at the end?
