Fans of Spike Lee are used to particular film genres from the director that include themes of race relations in America, Black culture and everything that falls in between. Now the director is gearing up to deliver something new to his fans with his next movie, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.
Surprisingly, unlike many of Spike Lee’s other films, DSBOJ includes a Science Fiction/Horror/Thriller element that we’ve never seen Spike explore in his movies before.
The Sweet Blood of Jesus tells the story of a man, who after discovering an ancient artifact, develops an insatiable thirst for blood. By the way, this is also a love story, the kind that “centers on an addiction to blood that once doomed a long forgotten ancient African tribe.”
Hmm, interesting, romantic and scary!
Check out the trailer below and let me know if this new Spike film is something you would go and see!
