Ex-Boy Band Member Plays Sleazy Vampire in Upcoming Film
It appears that all sorts of old boy band members are getting into acting these days, we already have *N Sync and New Kids on the Block members having a go at it, and now, one of the Backstreet Boys – Kevin Richardson. Kevin has the lead role in The Bloody Indulgent, a disturbing vampire film slated to be released sometime in 2012. This definitely isn’t the type of film I was expecting from him.
From the official press release:
“In an attempt to savagely chew the blood out of a B-rated strip club owner named Sid (Brian Gaskill), a skeezy indulgent vampire, Burt (Kevin Richardson), whose zest for “life” is equaled only by his addiction to really expensive, exotic drugs, hides out (and dopes up) at an upscale drug den, owned by a photographer who seems to have grown a dark whimsy of killing herself. Dori, Sid’s girlfriends, and the other rather unique and humorous strippers at the club (Diva Zappa, Tracey Leigh, Laura Martin… ) are hell bent on revenge and declare war on Burt. In the meantime, Burt’s sidekick Todd (newcomer Brandon Heitkamp) grapples with his new station as a vampire, turned by Burt in a moment of blood-lust, and also grapples with his ensuing bisexuality, a by-product of being turned into a vampire… he thinks. This sexy-violent musical is full of hot dancing girls and boys, drug addled nymphettes, existential zombies and gallons of blood rounding out this French New Wave version of a Pulp Fiction meets Strictly Ballroom romp.”
Yeah, Kevin has definitely grown up since his boy band days.
Here’s the trailer:
Ahahaha… just kidding (although there is a vamp in that video), here’s the real trailer for The Bloody Indulgent:
What do you guys think? Will you give the film a shot?
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
