Spike Lee's Da Sweet Blood of Jesus Print E-mail

Spike Lee is a cult director of talent, having formulated some excellent titles on his CV throughout the nineties, including Do the Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Get on the Bus, and the incredible story of Malcolm X, Spike rarely touches upon horror style flicks. Sure, he directed the brilliantly paranoid Summer of Sam in 1999, however he's generally stepped around the mainstream, TV and documentaries throughout the 00's.

Completed back in 2014, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a quasi-excursion into horror for Spike, with a film about Dr. Hess Green, who becomes cursed by a mysterious ancient African artefact and is overwhelmed with a newfound thirst for blood. He however is not a vampire apparently.

Starring Stephen Tyrone Williams, who has appeared in Children of God, and Restless City, as Dr. Green, and Zaraah Abrahams as his love interest Ganja Hightower, who is a British actress known for popping up in Holby City, Waterloo Road and many more.

The mainstream has clocked onto this one due to Spike releasing the work on Vimeo for download as a rental or purchase before its release to the theatres in February. Da Sweet Blood of Jesus was a Kickstarter project, and gathered a lot of support. “I’m hyped on my partnership with Vimeo to get my new joint ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ out to the world in a new way,” said Spike. He has also stated his film is inspired by the seventies flick Ganja and Hess.

Here's the Vimeo link and the trailer for the film:
