Director Dietrich Johnston’s feature directorial debut, the horror/action film “Blood Shot” is not to be confused with “Bloodshot”, the comic book movie currently gestating around Hollywood. This film actually popped up on our radar way back in 2008, when the casting of Brad Dourif and Lance Henriksen was announced. Unbeknownst to us, 2011 saw the release of a trailer and promo clip from the film, which you can see for yourself below. I don’t know, it looks kind of cool, in a, “Don’t take it too seriously” kind of way. The poster certainly doesn’t hurt its chances with me none.
In the heart of the city, a nefarious terrorist cell is plotting a major attack against the US. Little do the terrorists know, someone is on to them. As they prepare to execute the first part of their plan, a mysterious figure infiltrates their home base and dispatches them one by one. The mysterious figure is revealed to be a Vampire, but not just any Vampire. This particular Vampire is employed by a covert government organization lead by Sam whose sole mission is to protect America from detrimental threats. Meanwhile, Rip, a rogue cop, knows of the Vampire’s existence and will stop at nothing to destroy it, even if his wife, job, and sanity are at stake. After several violent encounters with the Vampire, Rip is beaten to a pulp, but like any good cop, he never gives up. The Vampire attempts to explain himself to Rip and convince him that he is on the same side, but Rip isn’t having it. In the meantime, Bob, the most notorious terrorist in the world, is on his way to the US to execute the attack. Along with him is a gang of motley terrorists, hell bent on destroying the city. Upon hearing the news, the Vampire must convince Rip to join forces and stop Bob before he detonates a powerful nuke in the middle of the city.
“Blood Shot” stars Lance Henriksen, Brad Dourif, Michael Bailey Smith, Brennan Elliott, Marty Klebba, Joey Naber, Anthony Batarse, Herzl Tobey and Assaf Cohen.
