Entertainment Weekly has today premiered the new trailer for Almost Human and The Mind's Eye director Joe Begos‘ next offering, Bliss, which I had the pleasure of viewing at this year's Cinepocalypse, where I declared it "a blood-soaked acid trip into vampiric chaos!" While this new trailer doesn't feature the ramped up viceral mayhem of the first trailer, this one showcases the total mind fuckery that viewers will be subjected to.
In Bliss, "Known for her dark and macabre artwork, painter Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison) is in a professional rut. Unable to finish her newest commissioned work, Dezzy looks to reignite her creative juices by letting loose-as in, taking every drug in sight and tearing through raucous house parties and heavy metal bars. After a few nights spent with her debauchery-loving friends Courtney (Tru Collins) and Ronnie (Rhys Wakefield), though, Dezzy notices changes within herself. On the positive side, she’s finally painting again, but she’s also developing a strange desire for blood. As someone who has never been able to control her vices in the first place, Dezzy is quickly and violently consumed by this bloodlust."
The original press release stated that Joe Begos has upped the ante with Bliss, which "roars with searing visuals, kinetic energy, an endearing nastiness, and a ferociously all-in lead performance from Madison. Although it’s set in modern-day Los Angeles, Bliss harkens back to the grimy days of New York City grindhouse cinema, when films like Abel Ferrara’s The Driller Killer and Bill Lustig’s Maniac were the norm."
