Wow. “The Bleeding”. Vampires vs. Army Rangers. Remember? We reported on this movie back in 2008, which seems like ages ago. (Or eons, in Interwebs time.) The film was apparently finished in 2009, but it’s taken it 2010 to finally surface, and even then you won’t get your hands on it until 2011. March 1, 2011, to be exact, when Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the film on DVD. Stills and DVD cover for the movie below.
Shawn Black (Matthias) knows pain. His parents and brother were killed in front of him. Beaten, bloodied and left for dead by a gang of ruthless vampires led by the charismatic Cain (Jones) and his lethal lieutenant Vanya (Kat Von D). But like his would-be murderers, Shawn has come back from the brink of death to take his revenge. He soon comes upon Reverend Roy (Madsen), who reveals to Shawn his calling as a “slayer,” the only human capable of truly destroying vampires.
Dark, brooding and with a palpable layer of cowboy justice, The Bleeding spins a tale of otherworldly influences running headlong into the very human thirst for revenge. Redemption comes with a heavy, and bloody, price in The Bleeding.
Starring Vinnie Jones, Michael Matthias, DMX, Rachelle Leah, Michael Madsen, Kat Von D, Armand Assante, and directed by Charlie Picerni.
