BLOOD VESSEL

FEATURE FILM (2020).
SCREENPLAY CO-WRITTEN WITH JUSTIN DIX.

Somewhere in the North Atlantic, 1945...

A lift raft adrift at sea, and in it, the survivors of a torpedoed Allied hospital ship. With no food, water, or shelter, all seems lost - until an abandoned German minesweeper drifts ominously towards them, giving them one last chance at survival. As they explore the ship, it becomes all too clear that some diabolical fate has befallen its German crew. The mystery only deepens when they encounter a young Romanian girl, who leads them to a locked storage room in the bowels of the vessel. Inside, a frantic German sailor and a haul of Nazi treasure, including the ancient sarcophagi of two long-dead vampires...

Suddenly, our ragtag group of heroes are faced with an all-new threat, forced into action against a supernatural reckoning older and deadlier even than the war they thought they were escaping.
