The hipster horror comedy Summer of Blood from writer-director Onur Tukel (Septien), has been acquired by MPI Media Group after debuting at last month’s Tribeca Film Festival, reports Deadline.
Patrick Cooper was a huge fan of the film, as he writes in this review.
Tukel also stars in the indie as Erik Sparrow, a selfish, schlubby NYC hipster whose miserable life turns around when he meets a vampire in Brooklyn and becomes a blood-sucker himself.
MPI’s Dark Sky Films will debut the pic, described as “Curb Your Enthusiasm” meets “True Blood,” in a Fall 2014 theatrical run and DVD/VOD release.
Summer of Blood opened Tribeca’s Viewpoints Section and also stars Anna Margaret Hollyman, Dakota Goldhor, Dustin Guy, Melodie Sisk, and Jason Selvig.
