Kat Von D Talks The Bleeding at the Film's LA Premiere
This scribe hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Crush Film’s The Bleeding last night at Sunset 5 in Hollywood, CA, and chatted with the film’s co-star and tattoo artist extraordinaire Kat Von D of the reality series "LA Ink". Von D talked up her role as the sexy vampire Vanya in what is her feature film debut, which was directed by Charles Picerni, as well as riffed on the effects required of her.
"It was very rock n’ roll! The prosthetics were my favorite part, and I made friends with all of the prop guys," Von D told Dread Central of her relationship with the film’s FX team. "The hardest part was when I had to bite this girl’s neck when she was tied up. I felt so bad because she was a really good actress and she was screaming and I was believing (her). The biting scene was the gnarliest - they had crazy tubes with high-pressure blood – and it was all over my face!"
Also on hand for the carpet (which quite simply turned to utter chaos ten minutes in) was The Bleeding producer Gordon Bijelonic as well as the film’s stars Rachelle Leah, Michael Matthias, and a very cool Michael Madsen, who spent time after the press-line signing autographs for overzealous fans, all the while smoking a cigarette and sipping a cocktail.
Wanna have a look at the trailer for this action/horror hybrid, which stars Vinnie (Midnight Meat Train) Jones as a vampire king hunted by his half brother (Matthias) and features copious gun-porn, car-porn, and blood-porn? You can see that below, too.
