Ice-T drinks blood in the trailer for vampire flick Bloodrunners

Bloodrunners Ice-T

Ice-T has been more well known as an actor than as a rapper recently, thanks to his long-standing role on Law & Order, but he's not known for genre films in spite of his iconic turn as Mac Daddy Onassis in LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD. But that's about to change, because the rapper will soon be sucking blood in the vampire period piece BLOODRUNNERS, from writer-director Dan Lantz.

Ice-T will be playing Chesterfield, a power-hungry vampire/speakeasy owner in the Prohibition era. How could you resist watching this?

Michael McFadden also stars as "a cop living large on looking the other way as booze flows through his protectorate.  When he discovers that Chesterfield, the owner of the latest speakeasy has a thirst for warm blood as well as cold hard cash, he must find a way to save his town before it dries up."

The truly insane synopsis is as follows:

By 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows and operate at night. The new world order has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone (McFadden). He collects a 'luxury tax' from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small town he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town.

Now Chesterfield (Ice-T), an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several bodies and innocent townsfolk taken as lambs to await the slaughter. With nowhere else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and a crazy preacher to save the town and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.

Check out the trailer and poster below! I promise you won't regret it!
