An imminent home release has been announced for Dan Lantz’s period-action-crime-horror Bloodrunners, which stars none other than Ice-T, and sees the Original Gangster plays an ancient, power-hungry vampire who descends on a small town in prohibition-era America. The film will be hitting Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on March 7th from Speakeasy Pictures and IMPULSE-FX.
Combining the action of gangster crime thrillers with liberal doses of gore, Bloodrunners also stars Michael McFadden (Into the Lion’s Den) as a corrupt cop who takes payoffs to look the other way as his town flows with illegal hooch. When he stumbles upon a vampire clan led by Ice-T’s Chesterfield however, he finds himself in a fight for the town’s very survival.
Here’s the official synopsis:
By 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows, and operate at night. The new world order has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone (McFadden). He collects a “luxury tax” from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small town he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hellbent on taking over the town. Now Chesterfield (Ice-T), an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several bodies and innocent townsfolk taken as lambs to await the slaughter. With nowhere else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and a crazy preacher to save the town and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.
Bloodrunners will be available to rent or own globally on iTunes and Steam and additionally through Google Play, Xbox, Playstation and various cable platforms across the US and Canada.
