Release Format: Theatrical
MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Bloodrunners combines the action of crime dramas with the otherworldly gore of vampire legends. Michael McFadden (The Networker) headlines as a cop living large on looking the other way as booze flows through his protectorate.
When he discovers that Chesterfield, the owner of the latest speakeasy has a thirst for warm blood as well as cold hard cash, he must find a way to save his town before it dries up.
By 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows and operate at night. The new world order has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone (McFadden).
He collects a ‘luxury tax’ from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small town he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town.
Now Chesterfield (Ice-T), an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several bodies and innocent townsfolk taken as lambs to await the slaughter.
With nowhere else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and a crazy preacher to save the town and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.
Bloodrunners will soon make its premiere in 2017. The Action, Crime, Horror is written and directed by Dan Lantz, Adam Danoff, and Michael McFadden, and produced by Speakeasy Pictures and IMPULSE-FX. It stars McFadden and Ice-T.
The Bloodrunners trailer is filled action, crime, and violence. This is what most vampire movies are made of. It opens up with classical music and a band playing. You see different interweaving scenes of people committing illegal acts. The world full of corruption.
Ice-T (Chesterfield) is a ruthless vampire, and his clan is running the underground world by storm. Michael McFadden (Jack Malone) teams up with police and a preacher to go battle the notorious clan of blood-thirsty, crime-ridden vampires.
In Bloodrunners, the cops and the vampires are at war. This idea alone is worth some attention. With all of the vampire movies that have released over the decades, I don’t think I have yet seen this particular vampire idea.
And, if it has been done, it certainly hasn’t been frequented enough as of yet. It reminds me of a dark and in-depth movie like Blade. I definitely like these kinds of vampire movies.
Ice-T is an interesting addition to Bloodrunners. He is a big advocate for Action, Crime, and Drama movies and television shows. His first debut into Horror is Leprechaun In Da Hood (2000).
I think his repertoire in Action, Crime, Dramas, such as New Jack City and Law And Order: SUV will complement his role in Bloodrunners well.
Bloodrunners is slated for a 2017 theatrical release but does not yet have an official date confirmed.
