Yeah, I said it.

You’re not alone, from the countless similar opinions I’ve picked up on it. Have yet to hear from someone who did like it. Meanwhile, it’s been on my Kindle and won a Pulitzer, but that’s not enough to get me to read it yet.

Summer of Blood

Here’s a strange one. Director Onur Tukel (full disclosure: I know the guy) stars as a nebbishy Brooklyn motormouth with commitment issues who, still reeling from a recent breakup, is bitten by a vampire and becomes an undead sex machine — with commitment issues. Deliriously weird and discomfiting, and very, very funny, it’s like what might happen if Woody Allen and Lena Dunham found themselves collaborating on a Roger Corman movie.

The world doesn’t need an indie vampire romantic comedy set in Bushwick, Brooklyn but the world doesn’t need a lot of things. See this while the world continues to burn slowly.

Full disclosure: I know the guy too. I helped produce Onur’s previous film, Richard’s Wedding (still available on iTunes and Amazon!) so hopefully this will be the one that breaks for him.

End Brooklyn

But before you do, see this movie
