The most recent trailer for the Joe Begos-directed (Almost Human and The Mind’s Eye) Bliss came dipped in a vat of acid, and now we have an exclusive clip from the film that shows painter-turned-vampire Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison) trying to get drugs from her dealer, but she decides to eat him instead.
One of my favorite horror movies of the year, Meagan Navarro declared the film “a hallucinogenic trip into blood-drenched madness!” Also, check out the must-see first blood-soaked trailer.
In the film, “Known for her dark and macabre artwork, painter Dezzy Donahue (Madison) is in a professional rut. Unable to finish her newest commissioned work, Dezzy looks to reignite her creative juices by letting loose-as in, taking every drug in sight and tearing through raucous house parties and heavy metal bars. After a few nights spent with her debauchery-loving friends Courtney (Tru Collins) and Ronnie (Rhys Wakefield), though, Dezzy notices changes within herself. On the positive side, she’s finally painting again, but she’s also developing a strange desire for blood. As someone who has never been able to control her vices in the first place, Dezzy is quickly and violently consumed by this bloodlust.”
The initial press release says Begos has upped the ante with Bliss, which “roars with searing visuals, kinetic energy, an endearing nastiness, and a ferociously all-in lead performance from Madison. Although it’s set in modern-day Los Angeles, Bliss harkens back to the grimy days of New York City grindhouse cinema, when films like Abel Ferrara’s The Driller Killer and Bill Lustig’s Maniac were the norm.”
Look for this in limited theaters and on VOD platforms September 27, 2019.
