Upcoming Film Explores the World of Real Sanguinarian Vampires

Over the past few years vampires have been dominating the box office, we have seen everything from vampire romances to vampire horror. But one thing we haven’t seen during this vampire craze are films on real vampires and the vampire subculture. That’s all about to change with the upcoming Sanguinarian film Bloodloss.

It has been reported that management-production companies Caliber Media Co. and Benderspink have teamed with Simplicity Media to launch an experimental feature film and social media project titled Bloodloss. The concept of Bloodloss is to stage a full-scale production within the modern-day subculture of Sanguinarian vampires, a “close-knit” community of individuals who drink human blood to maintain physical health. The film will be a series of pseudo-documentary scenes using a combination of actors and true participants in this lifestyle (both human vampires and their blood donors) shot in real vampire-fetish nightclubs. A social media campaign of status updates, blog entries, and video posts will allow viewers to receive daily updates on Bloodloss, while being directly engaged with each character and their experience in the world of real vampires.

As of now, there is no cast for Bloodloss, but casting is currently under way, and a director will be set shortly.

Writer Jason Dolan conceived the current version of the project with the producers and did a page-one rewrite to the original script by Jeffery Potts. Bloodloss focuses on “a documentary television producer as she investigates her sister’s sudden disappearance into an underground culture of self-proclaimed vampires in Los Angeles. As she discovers how these people actually live, their world of sex and drugs is beyond any addiction she has ever experienced.”

Ok, this entire project leaves me with a lot of questions. Are the making up a story about real vampires or are they actually doing a film about what real vampires are? It kind of sounds like a combination of both – fact and fiction combined.

All I can say without a doubt is that the real vampire community won’t be pleased about a movie that makes them look like blood-obsessed drug and sex addicts.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming Bloodloss?

  2. Oh God No. This is my first general thought. The Online Community is anything but “Close-Knit”…. I think it would be great for like the discovery channel or something. But as far as a real movie at the box office, no thanks.
    Not all Vampires do this, drink blood to maintain physical health, the idea for this movie would give us all a bad rep/name/thought. Idiots may hunt people like this more than ever.

    1. Hopefully I’m just reading this comment wrong, but do you mean to say that those that do “drink blood to maintain physical health” give a “bad rep/name/thought” to those that don’t?

      1. I am Not sang, so don’t get me mixed up.
        I have always been Latent/Pranic…feed on blood in small amounts for energy. But I do not need to feed on blood for energy anymore and I don’t (unless I have been sick…or the op presents itself, which is very little. I hate self dependency on anything, and I don’t promote it!)

        I don’t believe now that drinking blood will sustain physical health in vampires..its all in your mind really. If you believe it does but after a while you become numb to it, and it won’t anymore. It becomes habit, and dependency..who needs this? it becomes bad mentally for you or emotionally. Vampires after a while..well “Magickal Kind do” become more than physical, still have a flesh body but it is their spiritual body, which is shamanic belief. This is my personal belief and theory, which is Strigoi/Stregoni. This is not because of Twilight. Therefore if the shaman changes their physical state of being, mentally, and they become something else in accord to their spirit..blood feeding may no longer be needed by the “vampire” in question. It may be seen as distasteful as they mature as a being. Of course it depends on your mental state too..do you want to be good or evil. Do you want to help or hurt?

  6. Well, I’m interested that it will be about real vampires and vampirism. I just hope that the information is correct and doesn’t offend what they believe in.
