MPI/Dark Sky Films are getting ready to celebrate a Summer of Blood despite the fact that it’s already fall! Gotta appreciate their willingness to go against the grain! In any event…
Dark Sky will release Summer of Blood theatrically and on VOD October 17, 2014.
Onur Tukel (Septien, Red Flag), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), Anna Margaret Hollyman (Gayby, White Reindeer), Dakota Goldhor (Thumbsucker), Dustin Guy Defa (Bad Fever), and Keith Poulson (Hellaware, Listen Up Phillip) star.
Writer/director Onur Tukel turns in a hilarious performance as the monumentally lazy, socially oblivious, and commitment-shy Erik Sparrow, who is dumped by his career-woman girlfriend (Anna Margaret Hollyman, White Reindeer) when he rejects her rather charitable marriage proposal. Feeling lost, he turns to a disastrous string of online dates that successively eat away at his already deteriorating confidence until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller. Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Blood is a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.
