Blood Out is a 2011 American direct-to-video action film. The film is written by Jason Hewitt and John A. O'Connell, starring Val Kilmer and Luke Goss,[1] and is Hewitt's directorial debut.[2]


Small town Cop Michael Savion (Luke Goss) gets stone-walled by big city detectives led by Hardwick (50 Cent) when he asks them to investigate his younger brother's death. After his brother's death he swears vengeance in a flashback where he fires his gun in the rain over his dead body. His brother David (Ryan Donowho), a gangster, was murdered by members of his own gang for having wanted to quit the gang lifestyle in order to marry Gloria (a gang members sister), and for being suspected of 'ratting' out his gangs activities... Savion takes off his badge and goes vigilante to seek justice for the death of his brother, and crosses paths with Arturo (Val Kilmer), the leader of an international ring involved in human trafficking.



Filming began May 10, 2010[1] on locations in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.[3]

Vinnie Jones appears in the film. Despite reports of an earlier conflict with actor Tamer Hassan, both were quite amicable on and off the set.[4]

Former WWE Wrestler Bobby Lashley stars in the film.

As an unusual method of "clearing his head" on set after "flubbing" an occasional line of dialog, Val Kilmer would briefly break into dog-like barks and howls.[citation needed]

Lionsgate/Grindstone acquired distribution rights for the U.S. and Canada while Lionsgate U.K. acquired distribution right for the UK,[5][6] and has announced tentative plans for an end-of-year domestic release of the film.[2]


The film was scored by Jermaine Stegall, and features the single "Hells Gates" by Colin C. Allrich under his Slighter alias.[7]Also T.Lee from DesFly Entertainment song called "Im The Shit.


The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray in America on April 26, 2011.[8]
