A vampire tale by way of Brooklyn indie as told through distinct voice Onur Tukel (DING-A-LING-LESS), the abrasive and hilarious SUMMER OF BLOOD should make for an awkward Halloween.
Hitting select theaters Friday, October 17th from Dark Sky Films, SUMMER OF BLOOD is aka S.O.B., as would finely describe “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.”
Divisive out of its Tribeca Film Festival premiere—some just aren’t into those unrepentant, obnoxious protagonists—SUMMER OF BLOOD is a particularly funny blend of personal anxiety and New York horror story.
