Florida Megacon is 'Blood Shot'
The Megacon Indie Film Expo is proud to present the Florida premiere of the feature film, BLOOD SHOT. This film is based upon the award-winning short film by Dietrich Johnston which originally played at Megacon in the past. Johnston, and the executive producer Andrew Wyly, transformed the positive buzz about the short film into a star-filled full-length production. Brennan Elliot (Strong Medicine, The 4400) and Michael Bailey Smith (The Hills Have Eyes, Men in Black 2), two of the film`s stars will be appearing at Megacon in support of the premiere and hope to meet their fans and make new ones.
"The idea of making a full length feature film in Hollywood is a real dream come true for independent filmmakers," said Terry Cronin, who is the director of the Megacon Indie Film Expo. This is a really fun action-packed movie that has incredible potential for a series. A real franchise builder."
BLOOD SHOT is the story of a cop named Rip, played by Brennan Elliott, whose life falls apart as he chases a terminator-like vampire, played by Michael Bailey Smith, who happens to be a hitman controlled by a CIA agent played by Lance Henricksen (Millenium, Alien) . The great Brad Dourif (The Lord of the Rings) plays a notorious Middle Eastern terrorist who is plotting a major attack on the U.S. that includes detonating a powerful nuke in the heart of Los Angeles; the only thing standing in his way is an unlikely duo formed by the mysterious vampire (Michael Bailey Smith) and the cop (Brennan Elliott) who is chasing him.
Michael Bailey Smith is excited about coming to the show, It`s great to return to Florida and see all the cool stuff going on at Megacon. "I think the fans will love BLOOD SHOT and I hope to meet everyone who comes out to the show."
