A Slamdance world premiere, vampire office comedy Bloodsucking Bastards is hitting theaters and VOD this September 4th from the folks at cult home video label favorite Scream Factory.
In classic horror comedy tradition, Bloodsucking Bastards takes everyday frustrations and amplifies them with a supernatural threat.
In the film, Evan Sanders is a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evans the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern), so he soldiers on in the hope of one day getting his coveted sales director position.
Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evans boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands his promotion to his college nemesis Max (Pedro Pascal). And it isnt just their sordid past Evan has to deal with. After his fellow officemates start going through disturbing changes (which, paradoxically, make them better employees) and bodies begin to pile up, Evan learns the horrible truth: Max is a vampire. And even worse a vamp with a plan.
Evan must find a way to stop the evil brewing amidst the cubicles, expose Max as the bloodsucking bastard that he is, and save his pals before his life and career go from dead-end to just dead.
Starring Cabin in the Woods Fran Kranz, Game of Thrones standout Pedro Pascal, Mad Mens Joel Murray and The Collections Emma Fitzpatrick, Bloodsucking Bastards comes from LA comedy troupe Dr. God. Dr. God member Brian James OConnell helmed the film.
