This October, we're introduced to a different kind of vampire in the first trailer for the horror comedy Summer of Blood. It brings a unique twist to the horror genre we're pretty sure you've never seen before.

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 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.

Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood. A collision of absurd, self-deprecating wit and existential curiosity, Summer of Blood is a hilarious horror-comedy with a clever bite all its own.

Are you ready for the vampire genre to get twisted? Take a look at this first footage which comes along with a new poster. In select theaters and on VOD starting October 17!
