25TH ANNIVERSARY! Presented by Kung Fu Clubhouse!

The power of an Immortal. The soul of a human. The heart of a hero. Sworn to defend humanity, although not entirely human. Born with the cunning and superhuman power of a vampire, but able to stalk by day as well as night, Wesley Snipes stars in this action-packed thriller as the immortal vampire hunter, Blade.

Awakened to consciousness–and pain–before birth by the bite of the undead vampire that kills his mother, a young boy grows into a mythical warrior bearing a blood-curse: An almost insatiable desire for blood that he must fight every moment of every day. Blade uses his awesome power to battle the vampires led by his mortal enemy, the omnipotent vampire overlord, Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff). The undead have infiltrated the corridors of power, intent on conquering all mankind. Now, against an army of Immortals, one warrior must draw first blood.

Part of our annual horror series All Monsters Attack!

“Snipes plays his superhero character with such aching coolness that you can’t wait for the next dumb-ass vampire to get in his way.” Almar Haflidason, BBC
