Synopsis

Writer/director Onur Tukel turns in a hilarious performance as the monumentally lazy, socially oblivious and commitment-shy Erik Sparrow, who is dumped by his career-woman girlfriend (Anna Margaret Hollyman, White Reindeer) when he rejects her rather charitable marriage proposal. Feeling lost, he turns to a disastrous string of online dates that successively eat away at his already-deteriorating confidence until a lanky vampire turns him into an undead ladykiller, with a maniacal sex drive matched only by his frenzied need to feed on blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Bloodis a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.

Press

“Pedal-to-the-metal comic wit.”
- Kenji Fujishima, Slate

"This on-the-cheap indie comedy bests any current horror flick in terms of gory gross-out. It also trumps all current comedies in say-anything brio."
-Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice 

“Simply one of the best horror-comedies in years.”
– Patrick Cooper, BLOODY DISGUSTING

"If Woody Allen directed a vampire comedy, it might resemble Onur Tukel's hilarious urban satire Summer of Blood."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“Screamingly funny.”
– Brandon Harris, FILMMAKER MAGAZINE

"Funny and charming."
- Drew Taylor, Indiewire

“(A) self-deprecating comedy with an independent-scene all-star team.”
- Richard Brody, The New Yorker
