What do an IRS agent and a vampire have in common? Besides the fact that they’re both bloodsuckers, they both deserve love, am I right? This sets the stage for Bite Me, a subversive rom-com certain to strike a chord with sentimental horror fans. Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article.
Bite Me is an award-winning subversive romantic comedy about a real-life vampire and the IRS agent who audits her. In New York City Sarah (Naomi McDougall Jones, Imagine I’m Beautiful) is part of a subculture of people who identify as vampires who believe they need to drink blood to stay healthy. James (Christian Coulson, Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Nashville) is an expat IRS agent assigned to audit Sarah’s vampire church. Romance sparks between the two while clashes between their different worlds cause hiccups. Sarah’s roommates and community are not accepting of James, while James’ conservative Christian friends aren’t too fond of the vampire cult. As the impending IRS ruling looms, the two are forced to confront their feelings; will they abide by the norms or do they have the courage to fall in love with outsiders? Bite Me is a fun and colorful romantic comedy offering audiences hope, joy, and acceptance. The film costars Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story) and Annie Golden (Orange is the New Black).
Bite Me is directed by Meredith Edwards, written and produced by Naomi McDougall Jones, produced by Sarah Wharton, and executive produced by Jack Lechner and Joanne Zippel. More information is available at www.BiteMeTheFilm.com.
