From director Ten Shimoyama, who gave us one of the better ninja movies in recent years with “Shinobi: Heart Under Blade” and starring the lovely Aya Sugimoto (“Flower And Snake”), comes the erotic vampire movie “Blood”, which arrives on DVD in the UK courtesy of MVM Entertainment on May 3, 2010. The DVD will come with a buttload of trailers, including a theatrical trailer, original Japanese trailer, Sexy TV spot, Action TV spot, and Vision TV spot; it will also come with trailers for the movies “Dororo” and “Geisha Vs. Ninjas”. Check out four clips from the movie (FYI: the last one is NSFW).
‘The Hunger’ meets ‘Countess Dracula’ by way of ‘Blade’ and ‘The Matrix’ in Blood, an erotically charged vampire shocker with more bite than most contemporary horror offerings and featuring enough sizzling sex scenes, lashings of swordplay and stylized martial arts action to keep every genre fan happy.
Recently demoted within the ranks of the police force for exposing several highly respected officials involved in a political scandal, Detective Hoshino (Kanji Tsuda) is reduced to investigating long-shelved, unsolved cases just before their respective statutes of limitations expire. His latest assignment leads him to the mansion of a voluptuous, reclusive heiress, Miyako Rozmberk (Aya Sugimoto), to investigate the 14-year-old murder of one of her former maids. After claiming she has already told the police everything she knows concerning the case, Miyako announces to Hoshino that she knows the identity of the man responsible for the killing, identifying him as Ukyo Kuronuma (Jun Kaname), a mysterious businessman with powerful connections.
Having tracked down the newly revealed suspect, Hoshino is shocked to catch Ukyo in the act of slashing the throat of a naked young girl chained up in his headquarters. Discovering that the detective was led to him following the tip-off from Miyako, Ukyo reveals that he is, in actual fact, a vampire who was ‘turned’ 160 years ago by Miyako herself. Already as much under Miyako’s spell and Ukyo, Hoshino soon finds himself involved in a deadly love triangle in which he must battle one demon bloodsucker for the affections of another.
