Five Minutes of Delicious Blood

MORE BLOOD. MORE BLOOOOD! No, really, I want more of the movie. Gimme.


It's a beautiful blue-skyed morning and I just woke up to find that five minutes of the Japanese film Last Blood-- also known as the live-action adaptation of Production I.G's Blood: The Last Vampire –has been posted over at Yahoo! Japan. The film is opening on the 29th in Japan, so the promotion's getting pretty hefty now.

It's Windows Media Player (and let me tell you I had a heck of a time getting it set to play on this Mac), and then it took forever to load on my parents' ridiculous DSL. Which I finally will be leaving later today! Whew. And of course, a chunk of that five minutes (about 15 seconds) is just the promo image for the company involved.

The video is actually subtitled in Japanese but with spoken English, so it should be pretty easy for you folks to enjoy. Click here to get to Yahoo's page, and then click the big link that should have a number 5 in it.

Anyway, I won't spoil anything here in the text, but I will post my screencaps from the video. Enjoy!
