Spike Lee Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

Blackfilm.com has been provided with an exclusive image from Spike Lee’s latest film, “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus,” which will have its World Premiere on Sunday, June 22 at the 18th Annual American Black Film Festival.

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus - Zaraah Abrahams and Stephen Tyrone WilliamsFunded through his Kickstarter campaign, the independent romantic horror comedy is described as “Human beings who are addicted to Blood. Funny, Sexy and Bloody. A new kind of love story (and not a remake of “Blacula”).”

In an interview with Deadline, Lee talked about being discreet about the film’s plot, stating, “I want to continue to be deliberately vague. It’s the type of film where, the less you know about it, the better it is. I know that is against the religion of film marketing. You see a trailer today, and you don’t have to see the movie. I understand; people really have to have a reason to go to the movie theater. Parking, babysitter, $20 for a bucket of popcorn. I understand the logic behind putting it all in the trailer. But I’m not a Hollywood studio, and so we took a different approach. Time will tell if the choice I made was the right one. It was something I thought about. I wanted some intrigue, some mystery about this film, because it’s not your standard Hollywood movie.”

The film stars Zaraah Abrahams, Stephen Tyrone Williams, The Wire’s Michael K. Williams and Felicia Pearson, Steven Hauck and Elvis Nolasco.
