SUMMER OF BLOOD

Directed by Onur Tukel
FEATURE NARRATIVE 86 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE SUMMER OF BLOOD
Brooklyn writer-director Onur Tukel stars in this black comedy about relationships, attraction, commitment, and the true meaning of ‘eternity.’ Eric, a misanthropic, emotionally-stunted New Yorker, finds himself on the brink of a premature mid-life crisis when he rejects his career-woman girlfriend's marriage proposal. Stuck at a dead-end job with no allure in the dating pool and even less in bed, Eric has all reason to lose hope. But that all changes one fateful night when he runs into a vampire in an alleyway. The next day, Eric finds his confidence invigorated and his stomach in an excruciating pain that can only be subdued by one thing: blood.

With self-effacing humor and biting wit, Tukel pokes fun at the frustrating nuances of humanity that perpetuate even when we’re no longer human. Featuring Anna Margaret Hollyman and Alex Karpovsky, and a few vampire threesomes for good measure.
