Marina Antunes [Celluloid 12.03.14] drama vampires

It was to be expected that a "vampire" movie from Spike Lee would not look or feel like your average vampire movie offering and low and behold, the first trailer for Da Sweet Blood of Jesus suggests just as much.

I'm not really sure what's going on with the music here which seems completely off kilter with the rest of the trailer but Lee's new movie, which was financed in part through Kickstarter and with some cash from Steven Soderbergh, stars Stephen Tyrone Williams as Dr. Hess Green, a man who becomes cursed by an African artefact and finds himself with a new found thirst for blood. Along with Williams, the movie also stars Zaraah Abrahams and Rami Malek.

Lee hasn't exactly been burning up the screens over the last few years and he's certainly in need of a hit but I'm not sure this is it. It's certainly an interesting story concept but we'll have to wait and see if Lee manages to deliver.

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus opens theatrically and on VOD February 13, 2015.
