About “QUEEN OF BLOOD”
A thematic and stylistic follow-up to Chris Alexander’s first film, the award-winning experimental psychodrama BLOOD FOR IRINA, QUEEN OF BLOOD sees vampire Irina (once more played by Shauna Henry) reborn as a “vampiric” plague, a force of nature whose destiny is to lay waste to a fever dream vision of the Wild West. Drawing her victims to her like insects to bright lights, Irina drains their blood through her fingertips while setting her sights on a pregnant widow (Carrie Gemmell, whose dreamy vocals also grace Alexander’s original score), a woman who might hold the key to Irina’s fate.
Legendary Skinny Puppy vocalist and lyricist Nivek Ogre (REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA) also stars as a mad preacher, dangerously obsessed with Irina whom he sees as an act of God. An epic, psychological, surrealist opera with touches of science fiction, QUEEN OF BLOOD also features costumes by Alex Kavanagh (the SAW franchise, LAND OF THE DEAD, REPO!) and special FX work from Paul Jones (SILENT HILL, POMPEII, the RESIDENT EVIL franchise).
“BLOOD FOR IRINA” is available on Blu-ray and Digital on Amazon:
