You think your 9 to 5 job sucks? Get a load of the crap that Fran Kranz has to deal with in Bloodsucking Bastards, the Slamdance horror comedy from director Brian James O'Connell.
Scream Factory Films, a genre theatrical imprint of Shout! Factory announced today that Bloodsucking Bastards will get a limited theatrical release, alongside a VOD release on September 4th! You can watch the trailer below.
Bloodsucking Bastards takes audiences on a hilarious, blood-spattered roller coaster ride in the most terrifying locale of all: the American workplace. The film stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan's the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern), so he soldiers on in the hope of one day getting his coveted sales director position.
Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan's boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands his promotion to his college nemesis Max (Pedro Pascal). And it isn't just their sordid past Evan has to deal with. After his fellow officemates start going through disturbing changes (which, paradoxically, make them better employees) and bodies begin to pile up, Evan learns the horrible truth: Max is a vampire. And even worse... a vamp with a plan.
Evan must find a way to stop the evil brewing amidst the cubicles, expose Max as the bloodsucking bastard that he is, and save his pals before his life and career go from dead-end...to just dead.
Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods) stars along with Pedro "Thumbs in his eyes" Pascal (Game of Thrones), Emma Fitzpatrick (Significant Mother, The Collection), Yvette Yates (Inherent Vice) with Joel Murray (Mad Men) and Joey Kern (Cabin Fever).
