No, it’s not Max Schreck on steroids. Dread Central has scored the first pics of genre fav Michael Bailey Smith (The Hills Have Eyes) decked out as the gun-toting, ass-kicking nosferatu in Blood Shot – a horror/action/comedy currently filming in Los Angeles.
Based on the award-winning short film of the same name (check out the trailer for it in Video Dread), Blood Shot follows the exploits of a vampire employed by the C.I.A. to kill terrorist cells. Teaming up with a rogue cop (Brennan Elliott), the two set out to take down an evil Saudi Arabian terrorist (Brad Dourif) who plans to take over the world. Original writer/director Dietrich Johnston returns behind the cameras, and Lance Henriksen co-stars.
The producers have described it as “Big Trouble in Little China crossed with Lethal Weapon and Evil Dead” and the first of a planned trilogy. What we saw on set looked extremely badass, chock full of crazed action, warped humor, and a high body count. Be sure to check back soon for our full report.
In the interim click on the pics below for a closer look at M.B.S. in all his toothy glory!
