Bloodthirsty film Storyline
Plot Summary & Review
Grey Kessler, an indie singer-songwriter, is anxious about following up a great album with a successful follow-up. She also takes medication to prevent dreams in which she transforms into a wolf, and she appears to have other medical difficulties, despite the fact that her doctor cannot detect anything physically wrong with her.
Vaughn Daniels, a reclusive music producer who was formerly a successful boy-band vocalist in the 1990s, invites Grey to create and record her second album in his secluded estate. Grey’s girlfriend, a painter named Charlie, learns that Vaughn was prosecuted for the murder of a singer named Greta but was acquitted. Grey accepts Vaughn’s offer despite her reservations, and Charlie joins her.
Grey becomes increasingly obsessive as the creative process progresses, and he begins to dismiss Charlie’s worries. Grey is pushed by Vaughn, who encourages her to write songs about her worst urges. He mocks Grey’s vegetarianism, offers her absinthe to drink, and pressures her to finish a song he claims his wife, who committed suicide, had begun. Grey develops a strong need for and consumption of meat, and her emotional void deepens. Her songwriting and performance, however, improve. Charlie wants them both to leave since the darkness is engulfing Grey, but Grey refuses.
Grey discovers that she has turned into a werewolf. She kills Charlie in a blackout after doing so. Grey encounters Vaughn later, who confesses that he, too, is a werewolf and that Grey is his daughter. He wasn’t sure before this since her mother, Greta, whom he had shot and killed in self-defense, had told Vaughn that their kid had died while he was away with his band for months at a time. Grey, who has finished her record, shoots Vaughn with a gun as he begins to shift into a werewolf.
The scene shifts back to Grey’s doctor’s office, where he closes her file and claims she’s having hallucinations. Grey performs her song “Bloodthirsty” on stage later, but there is no one in the audience. Grey recalls or imagines himself leaving the mansion, bloodied after slaying Vaughn.
