Zombies, lust, intrigue and black magic combine in “Kiss the Blood from My Lips,” the latest episode of the cult TV series, “Lee Martin’s The Midnight Hour.” In it, a sexy young heiress invokes her psychotic father’s rage when she insists on dating a particularly sleazy Lothario. Murder and madness follow before witchcraft is used to raise the vengeful dead.
Filming has wrapped on the grisly shocker, which stars series veterans Jesse Nagy, Rocco Guirlanda and Linda Linsley. Newcomer Kef Lee turns in a compelling performance in a physically demanding role while Alora Catherine Smith brings glamour to the proceedings. Along with its principal players, the entry benefits from its fast paced script, creepy setting and twist ending.
Lensed within the walls of an historic home in Indian Village (a neighborhood of early 20th century mansions in Detroit, Michigan), “Kiss the Blood from My Lips” combines blood, gore, supernatural mystery and ambience for an offbeat and ghoulish ride.
“People who watch ‘Midnight Hour’ regularly think I must have a diabolical mind,” says series creator Lee Martin. “I suppose in a way I do, because the ghastlier the storyline, the more I chuckle writing it.”
Viewers can expect tremendous mood from director of photography Peter Fox’s cinematography and stomach-churning gore from film editor/co-producer Brian Schoof’s slick CGI work.
“Kiss the Blood from My Lips” airs every Saturday and Thursday night throughout April, 2012. Visit www.leemartinsthemidnighthour.com for channels, times and a live streaming video simulcast link.
