Grant Edgar in Bad Blood

Bad Blood

1981 NR

Angry that authorities want to confiscate his gun collection, New Zealand farmer Stan Graham (Jack Thompson) goes on a rampage, killing seven men and triggering a nationwide manhunt in this docudrama based on a true 1941 incident. A skilled outdoorsman, Graham eludes searchers for 12 days in the beautiful wilds of the country's remote South Island. Director Mike Newell's complex thriller is a shocking study of paranoia and fear.
