Watch the first trailer for Spike Lee's 'Da Sweet Blood of Jesus'

Posted on

Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus

Though Spike Lee encountered some criticism for turning to Kickstarter to fund it, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus met its fundraising goaland now we have our first look with the first trailer.

Blood tells the story of Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams), who, though not a vampire, develops a strange addiction to blood after an encounter with a mysterious ancient artifact.

This newfound thirst could not have come at a worse time, however, as he also enters into a romance with Ganja Hightower (Zaraah Abrahams).

Lee raised more than $1.4 million for Blood, and has assembled a cast that includes Michael K. Williams, Rami Malek, and Elvis Nolasco. Spike Lee’s latest joint is set to hit theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.
