NYC/Brooklyn: See “SUMMER OF BLOOD” at IFP Tonight with Director Q&ANews Fangoria Staff
Onur Tukel’s acclaimed new indie, the NYC-set horror-comedy SUMMER OF BLOOD, is currently enjoying a weeklong run at the Made in NY – IFP Media Center (30 John St). in Dumbo, Brooklyn. There, each screening is accompanied by a talk with director Tukel moderated by a lineup of filmmakers and film writers that have included Indiewire’s Eric Kohn, Troma chief Lloyd Kaufman and indie horror great Larry Fessenden. Tonight at the 8:30 p.m. show, our very own Samuel Zimmerman is up!
SUMMER OF BLOOD, currently available from MPI/Dark Sky Films on demand and in select theaters, is a wry, New York tale of horror that sees writer-director Tukel essays man terrified of commitment who’s successively dumped and turned into a vampire in a matter of weeks. Soon, Erik is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood.
The film is hilarious, a decidedly Brooklyn October treat only aided by the singular presence of Tukel and his outlook in the flesh. I hope you’ll join us tonight in checking out and discussing the film.
