Bloodgurgler is a dark comedy/thriller which highlights the potential dangers of a life online, particularly when playing games with people whose real-life identities we don’t know. Computer-based role play games have become a significant part of the lives of many adolescents and young adults, and Bloodgurgler taps in to the excitement, the thrill, the terror experienced in the game world by our potential audience.
The film explores this “world” through the eyes of Brian, a young office worker. He sneaks time at work to play his favourite game, unaware that his victories and some of his other behaviours have offended his opponents who are out for revenge, and not just in the “game world”.
In the virtual world, you can run, but you can’t hide!
