Watch the Trailer for Spike Lee’s New Crowd-Funded Bloodsucker Movie


Spike Lee raised $1.4 million on Kickstarter to make Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, and judging from the trailer, that was a pretty accurate forecast — this thing looks like a million bucks. It's a remake of 1973 blaxpolitation film Ganja & Hess, about a high-class academic whose brush with a magical dagger leaves him with an insatiable thirst for blood. Fortunately, Ganja & Hess was not known for its elaborate tracking shots, so there are no superfans to disappoint this time.
