Vampire in Brooklyn: Trailer for Tribeca Horror-Comedy, “SUMMER OF BLOOD”


Well, it looks like Onur Tukel made a film for everyone (me) who loved Rick Alverson’s THE COMEDY, but kind of wished someone transformed into a creature during it. 

Opening the Viewpoints section of the rapidly approaching 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, SUMMER OF BLOOD is written and directed by and stars Tukel as the “Misanthropic and immature Eric, who faces a premature mid-life crisis after his girlfriend leaves him. With no career and even less charisma in bed, it seems like this loveable loser is beyond hope, until one fateful summer night when a vampire bites him in a Brooklyn alleyway. The next day, Eric finds his confidence invigorated and his stomach in excruciating pain that can only be cured by one thing…blood. Onur Tukel directs and stars in this delightfully dark comedy about love, lust, and humanity.”

The Tribeca Film Festival takes place from April 16-27 in New York City. For more on its genre lineup, see here and keep an eye on Fango for reviews out of the festival in the coming weeks.
