Crowdfund This: Michael Reaves’ ‘Blood Kiss’

Wednesday 15th May 2013 by Derek Kraneveldt

With talent like this, I wonder just how quickly Blood Kiss is going to hit its goal.

Emmy Award winning writer Michael Reeves has developed an ambitious new film project, but he (and everyone else involved) needs your help if the feature is ever going to see the light of day. The project is called Blood Kiss, a ‘Vamp Noir” film (an entirely new genre) that revolves around detective Joe Belicek, who must solve the murder of a vampire before a deranged killer murders them all.

Inspired by Film Noir, Blood Kiss is set in 1940’s Hollywood, and already has some fantastic names attached to it. Blood Kiss will feature the acting debut of the incredible Neil Gaiman, who had some fantastic words to say about the film’s script:

“Michael sent me the script. I told him, “it’s a terrific script.” and he said, “I want you to act in it.” I replied “There’s nobody else I would act for.”

Blood Kiss will also star writer/director/actor Amber Benson, who is no stranger to vampire media after spending three years as Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Some of the cool rewards up for grabs!
