Just caught "The Tattooist" and though it definitely has it's flaws, it's worth checking out for some gruesome set pieces involving people bleeding tattoo ink (and blood) and a great splattery scene in the hospital which includes an eyeball splitting in two and oozing. Jason Behr (tv's "Roswell," "Skinwalkers," "The Grudge," "D-Warragon Wars") does what he can with his character - most of the characters are either unlikable or just plain dull. He's the only recognizable face (and body, with a nude scene during the opening credits) in the cast of this New Zealand-lensed mystery. It's short on mystery as well as suspense, but undemanding genre fans should at least put "The Tattooist" on the rental queue for something different.
No announcement yet.
