Trailer Watch: Onur Tukel’s Summer of Blood
Opening Night of Tribeca Film Festival’s Viewpoints section, Onur Tukel’s Summer of Blood looks to be the latest entry in the genre that keeps on giving: vampires. Despite his average Joe likeness, Erik Sparrow (Tukel) seems to have a lot going for him: a good job, stable relationship, all against the thriving backdrop of New York City. Things take a sharp downturn when his girlfriend Jody (Anna Margaret Hollyman) goes out on a limb and proposes to him, and the pompous Erik rejects her offer. Drowning in a post-breakup malaise, Erik is fortuitously bitten by a vampire and revitalized in mind, body and spirit. Thanks to Factory 25, you can watch the film’s first trailer above.
