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

A pseudo-{{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:

* ArchnemesisDad: Kagan to Rayne.
* 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.
* BareYourMidriff: Rayne and Katarin.
* BigBad: Kagan.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Rayne's signature weapons, which are inexplicably replaced with swords in the third film.
* ChildByRape: According to Rayne, she was conceived by Kagan raping her human mother.
* CoitusEnsues: There's a sex scene between Rayne and Sebastian, with no build up beforehand.
* {{Dhampyr}}: Rayne, obviously.
* DropTheHammer: One of the vampire bodyparts is guarded by a deformed monk who uses a mallet and spiked clubs to fight.
* DualWielding: Rayne wields two blades, just like in the games.
* DullSurprise: You'll be amazed how nonchalant people can be about being stabbed or dismembered.
* 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.
* {{Gorn}}: The movie contains ''absurd'' amounts of graphic carnage, though it's obviously-gratuitous nature and [[SpecialEffectsFailure obvious fakeness]] make it more narmy than anything.
* InNameOnly: The movie (and its sequel) has very little in common with the game, aside from the protagonist being a female {{Dhampyr}} named Rayne who [[IHateYouVampireDad fights her vampire father]].
* InterplayOfSexAndViolence: The [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank excessively-bloody violence]] is the only thing more gratuitous than the female nudity.
* MakeSureHesDead: The protagonists [[OffWithHisHead decapitate]] fallen vampires to make sure they're really dead.
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: Vladmir gets captured and then stabbed through the heart and throughout his emotionless expression doesn't change at all.
-->'''Linkara''': My god, man, you're being stabbed! Don't you care?!
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8bpiWqx-MY Apparently not.]]
* NoSell: The three body parts each make a vampire immune to one of their natural weakness.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: No one really sounds Romanian, but some of the cast - Michael Madsen, Matt Davis, Meat Loaf, and others - don't even try to disguise their modern American accents.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Unlike some of her castmates, Michelle Rodriguez at least tries to put on an accent. Unfortunately, it keeps fading in and out not only between scenes but sometimes even during one line of dialogue.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: For one thing, plain, ordinary water acts like HollywoodAcid on them.
** And, according to at least one shot, it also acts like it on their SHOES.
* PlotCoupon: Rayne and Kagan are looking for the holy (unholy?) body parts of an ancient vampire, that take away their weaknesses.
* SadTimesMontage: In the last 5 minutes of the Unrated Director's Cut, 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): Rayne's quest for the enchanging bodyparts is one to ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'', where one must collect Dracula's body parts.
* SwordFight: Plenty of it, even the climactic action scene is one.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Sebastian casually kills a vampire in a Tavern and no one bats an eye. The owner merely comments on how he's glad they didn't make a mess of the place.
* WeakenedByTheLight: Leonid is destroyed by sunlight.
