[CFF ’22] ‘The Blood of the Dinosaurs’ review: Trippy short is a thrill ride for the senses

Time to learn where oil comes from!

The Blood of the Dinosaurs is a short film playing at the Chattanooga Film Festival that manages to fit in a lot of ideas in its seventeen minute runtime. It uses various types of video clips and touches on themes like PTSD. It is a surreal work that is creative, twisted, and frightening. But is the hodgepodge of ideas too much for audiences?

Director Joe Badon has crafted a work that is impossible to describe in words. It weaves in between genres while never staying a part of any. Filled with genuine scares and laugh out loud moments, The Blood of the Dinosaurs will take audiences on a ride. It is sexually charged, yet reading the synopsis may make some think it is for kids. 

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Movies Podcast!

If it sounds like it is all over the place, that is because it is – at least, artistically. It will definitely end up being a sensory overload for anyone who watches. But throughout the random clips and out of nowhere sound effects, the film will keep audiences engaged. It is funny, scary, and unlike anything else playing at Chattanooga.
