Cities to Screen Rise


Vampire slaying Liu slays on June 1st

When we broke the scoop during our Sebastian Guitierrez that his vampire noir Rise: Blood Hunter would get a limited release on June 1st, we presumed it would hit all of the usual bustling cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago…

Boy, were we wrong.

Shock has discovered the Lucy Liu-starring revenge story with heavy shades of lesbian lovin’ (a la The Hunger) will get its groove on in Phoenix, Seattle and Minneapolis via Destination Films and Samuel Goldwyn. An immortal life on DVD is expected shortly thereafter.

Produced under Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures shingle, Rise made its world premiere last month. For an exclusive clip, click here.
