Based on the [[VideoGame/{{Bloodrayne}} game]] of a same name, '''''[=BloodRayne=]''''' is the third video game movie by Uwe Boll, released in 2005, starring Creator/KristannaLoken, Creator/MichelleRodriguez, Creator/MichaelMadsen, and Creator/BenKingsley.

A {{Prequel}} to the games, the film centers around the {{Dhampyr}} Rayne seeking to bring down her vampire father, Kagan. Instead of centering around killing Nazis, the first film is set around the Middle Ages and features a more laid back Rayne compared to her video game counterpart. But afterall, Uwe Boll made this film and his faithfulness to source material has always been lacking.

''Bloodrayne'' pretty much became the first franchise of films by Uwe Boll, as there are two sequels, ''Film/BloodrayneIIDeliverance'' and ''Film/BloodrayneTheThirdReich'' , and a fourth film is in development, rumored to be set in modern times.
!!This film contains the examples of:

* AttemptedRape: Rayne is almost raped by the one of the circus workers, but during the quarrel some blood is drawn and her powers are awakened.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Rayne's signature weapons, which are inexplicably replaced with swords in the third film.
* CoitusEnsues: There's a sex scene between Rayne and Sebastian, with no build up beforehand.
* DualWielding: Rayne wields two blades, just like in the games.
* EvilIsHammy: Music/MeatLoaf as Leonid.
* FortuneTeller: Rayne finds out about her Chosen One status when she meets one after she breaks free from the circus.
* MakeSureHesDead: The protagonists decapitate fallen vampires to make sure they're really dead.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: For one thing, plain; ordinary water acts like HollywoodAcid on them.
* PlotCoupon: Rayne and Kagan are looking for the holy (unholy?) body parts of an ancient vampire, that take away their weaknesses.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Apparently Creator/KristannaLoken and Creator/MichelleRodriguez dated for bit during filming.
* SadTimesMontage: In the last 5 minutes, after Rayne [[spoiler:kills Kagan]] and sits on the throne, the viewer is treated to about 3-4 minutes of slow motion shots of many of the gory kills in the film. But it seems more like a special effects montage showcasing the over-the-top gore effects and the fight choreography.
* ShoutOut (may be a WholePlotReference): To those ''Franchise/CastleVania'' games where one must collect Dracula's body parts.
* SwordFight: Plenty of it , even the climactic action scene is one.
* WeakenedByTheLight: Leonid is destroyed by sunlight.
