MTI Serves up Cup of my Blood
MTI Home Video has picked up the video rights to the Chicago-lensed supernatural shocker CUP OF MY BLOOD, with VHS/DVD release currently set for August 30. Shoreline Entertainment is licensing the film for international release. Directed by Lance Catania from a script he wrote with Ken Nilsson and produced by Noel Olken and Nilsson, the movie is about a porn photographer (Daniel Patrick Sullivan) who, after witnessing a fatal car accident, comes into possession of an ancient wooden cup. Soon he meets and falls in love with an exotic young woman (Janina Gavankar), but also becomes the target of evil supernatural forces that lead him to suspect the artifact is the Holy Grail itself. The cast also includes Roger Anderson, Lance Mulvaney, Allie Smith, John Turk and Circus?Szalewski; a limited theatrical break in advance of the disc release is also planned.
Catania and Olken?s next project will be an adaptation of the novel MESSENGER by popular horror author Edward Lee, who has called CUP ?Intense, erotic and so macabre it blew the dial off my Creepometer. CUP OF MY BLOOD is not only a stunning debut, it?s proof of a formidable directorial/production talent. This company has the potential to become a powerhouse in the horror arena.? MESSENGER is set to roll later this year for Catania and Olken?s Severe Films; you can see the official website for CUP OF MY BLOOD here.
