It may be a lull between Twilight films and True Blood seasons, but vampires are still very much hot. It takes a film in that lull to remind us that those bloodsuckers are still out lurking in the dark, and have a taste for B-list actors like Michael Madsen and Armand Assante. That’s where The Bleeding comes in.
The film stars a range of names you’ll see at any basement comic book convention like Madsen, Assante, Vinnie Jones, DMX, and everyone’s favorite inked hottie Kat Von D. Here’s the official synopsis of the film:
Shawn Black (Matthias) knows pain. His parents and brother were killed in front of him. Beaten, bloodied and left for dead by a gang of ruthless vampires led by the charismatic Cain (Jones) and his lethal lieutenant Vanya (Kat Von D). But like his would-be murderers, Shawn has come back from the brink of death to take his revenge. He soon comes upon Reverend Roy (Madsen), who reveals to Shawn his calling as a “slayer,” the only human capable of truly destroying vampires.
A little bit Buffy, a little bit Blade, and a lot of DMX. You can check out the first full trailer after the jump. Catch The Bleeding on DVD and Blu-Ray March 1st.
