Default Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2014) Spike Lee's new horror film

This was his Kickstarter project
here is the thread that was moved to another forum but now this film has a title and more info:

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.




LEE: Ruth Carter, a two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Costumes for Malcolm X and Amistad. Ruth’s first film was School Daze and we’ve worked on and off since. In 2013, she just did the costumes for my new film, my Kickstarter film, which is entitled Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. “Da” is spelled d-a, not t-h-e. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. Ruth did a phenomenal job on that. She’s great.

Can you talk a little bit more about Da Sweet Blood of Jesus?

LEE: It’s a Kickstarter film. It will be a Spike Lee Joint. (Laughs) It’s about people addicted to blood, but they’re not vampires. We talk about it, but really blood is a metaphor. In this film, Mississippi people are addicted to blood, and as we all know, human beings have many addictions: drugs, sex, alcohol, power, money, Air Jordans. (Laughs) Whatever it is, we have addictions, and in this one, people are addicted to blood. It’s a contemporary film. We shot in New York and Martha’s Vineyard and we’re editing it now. We shot it in 16 days, one day ahead of schedule. The goal was to raise $1,250,000. We raised $1,400,000. I loved all the people who backed this film. The male lead’s name is Stephen Tyrone Williams, a young Broadway actor. You might have seen him in Lucky Guy, the Nora Ephron film that was on Broadway this summer with Tom Hanks. The female lead is a woman named Zaraah Abrahams, a black Brit actress. I saw one of my student’s thesis films and she was a co-star. I asked my student, “You cast…? You got it flipped. She should have been the star.” I tracked her down, and I flew to London, and she’s the lead. There are phenomenal performances in this film.

Is it scary?

Lee: It’s scary, humorous, bloody, sexy. Go for this one!

Personally I think this has potential. It's his own work and it seems like he's venturing into different territory. He's a very good director, but he doesn't always choose the right projects.

hack-
n.

3.
a. One who undertakes unpleasant or distasteful tasks for money or reward; a hireling.
b. A writer hired to produce routine or commercial writing.



he is a lot of things. he can be called a lot of things.

You do not know what the work hack means because he cannot be called a hack.

He is the farthest thing from a hack.

'Da' in the title - pass.

Spike Lee makes terrible movies, I have no doubt this will be no exception.

sounds awful, especially if the director is talking about metaphors of blood and vampires.

Just rent A Vampire in Brooklyn instead.

I like that every Spike Lee thread ends up devolving into senseless bashing.

well, the director sucks the same way Coppola and De Palma has sucks - good directors from the past but only make cruddy movies now.

Hopefully, Oldboy will change that.
