With so many big movies and properties at Comic-Con this year grabbing most of the attention, it’s only right that a smaller horror flick we’re really looking forward to get some love. A new trailer for J.A. Steel’s Blood Fare debuted at the big dance, and we have it for you right here!
From the Press Release: On July 26, 2011, the trailer of the award-winning female writer and director J.A. Steel’s fourth feature film, Blood Fare, hits the web after having its world premiere on the Big City Comics video wall at the San Diego Comic-Con 2011 on July 23. Steel; Gil Gerard, internationally recognized for his lead role as Captain William ‘Buck’ Rogers in the science fiction movie and television series “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”; Savannah Ostler (Vengeance), Splattercontainer Scream Queen October 2010; and Jeff Kaufman, creator of the brand new graphic novel “Terminal Alice”, attended the world premiere.
Blood Fare is a Civil War ghost story with a modern twist by J.A. Steel and co-producer Christian K. Koch. It is the tale of Corporal Henry Trout (S. Edward Meek – Wild Stallion), who in 1861 fought valiantly in a forgotten skirmish after the first battle of Bull Run. 150 years later, he will come face to face with his descendants as the battle for blood continues on a haunted battlefield. Tyler (Brandi Lynn Anderson from the upcoming Syfy original series “ZEROS”) and her brother, Chad (Adrian West), Henry’s fifth generation grandchildren, will challenge the very legend of Charon the Ferryman, as the lines between the living and the dead become blurred.
Gerard plays the character of Professor Meade, mentor to the protagonist Tyler, in Blood Fare. Gerard was recently seen in the Syfy original movie Ghost Town. International action star Kim Sonderholm, most recently seen in the newly released Little Big Boy, appears alongside Gerard as Professor Malick.
In addition to Gerard and Sonderholm, several other amazingly talented actresses and actors have joined the Blood Fare cast, including Michelle Wolff (“NCIS”, “Chicago Hope”, “ER”, and “Providence”), Bridget McManus (Wanted), Scott Beringer (Ocean’s Eleven and 21), Brenden Whitney, Alison Trouse, Thomas J. Post, Antonio Lexerot and April Knight. Marcus Intheam, Salt Lake City star radio DJ of “Marcus in the Morning” on Z-ROCK 94.9 and “The Real L Word Live Lounge” host Natalie M. Garcia add live broadcast talent.
Chris Hanson, one of the most recognized special makeup effects artists of Hollywood, joined the crew of Blood Fare as Special Makeup Effects Supervisor. He demonstrated his unique creativity in Hellboy, Underworld, Men in Black, Men in Black 2, The Green Mile, “The X-Files”, The Faculty, Spawn and many other productions.
Steel rounds out her crew with Director of Photography Michael B. Call (127 Hours), Co-Producer Christian M. Koch, who has worked with Steel on her first three films, and Executive Producer Jessica M. Bair.
Blood Fare is a green, sustainable film production, and Eco/Sustainable Production Executive Micheline Birkhead was on set to ensure the project meets green certification requirements.
