Kicking Blood


Screening room

Status: Post-Production

Director(s): Blaine Thurier

TIFF 2021 - Contemporary World Cinema

Anna has been living in a haze of psychedelic blood bliss for as long as she can remember. Her hedonistic existence is challenged when she meets Robbie, a charming alcoholic party boy: he is looking for a drink; she is looking for a feed; they bond. 

Anna takes him home, intrigued that Robbie doesn’t care if he lives or dies. She decides to let him live and stay with her until he gets sober – putting her at odds with her true murderous nature and the scorn of her vampire squad.

When Anna watches her best mortal friend die from cancer, it inspires her to choose life. Confronted by her cohort of vampires, Anna vows to quit blood and become human again for the love of life... and Robbie, of course. Anna, weakened by blood withdrawal, makes a run for it with Robbie as they are preyed upon by the vampires. In a final showdown, what it means to be human is put to the test. What is sweeter... blood or love?
