“A Spike Lee Joint, DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS is a new kind of love story, one that centers on an addiction to blood that once doomed a long forgotten ancient African tribe. When Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams) is introduced to a mysteriously cursed artifact by an art curator, Lafayette Hightower (Elvis Nolasco), he is uncontrollably drawn into a newfound thirst for blood that overwhelms his soul. He however is not a vampire. Lafayette quickly succumbs to the ravenous nature of the infliction but leaves Hess a transformed man. Soon Lafayette’s wife, Ganja Hightower (Zaraah Abrahams), comes looking for her husband and becomes involved in a dangerous romance with Hess that questions the very nature of love, addiction, sex, and status in our seemingly sophisticated society.”

    Not really a fan of Spike Lee – or his “joints”

    Spike Lee hasn’t made anything decent in while.

    the trailer at least sets up what looks like a very interesting and engaging movie using common themes to explore other ideas in an interesting way. I do not know if I will like this movie, or that it will speak to me, but I feel like I want to watch it and even if it doesnt resonate I think it will at least be saying something.

    This is a remake of 1973’s Ganja And Hess starring Night of the Living Dead’s Duane Jones. I saw Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy the other night, and found myself more or less indifferent to it. I’ll approach this one with equally measured anticipation and skepticism.

    Beautiful movie. I mean that literally and figuratively. Very well shot and put together. I’m not sure how Spike Lee managed to assemble such dazzling sets and talent, but I guess there are benefits to being a household name director. The story is mesmerizing- even more so the second time through than the first watch. There’s a sort of pulse and texture to this film that is very hard to describe, but tangible nonetheless. And there is so much activity outside the point of focus, this is really an arthouse flick that deserves at least a few viewings. Good on Spike Lee for producing this for under 1.5 million dollars. I don’t even know how that’s possible. Well done.
