Chris Alexander's 'Blood for Irina' all set to scare up New York's Times Scare

Blood for Irina, which is the directorial debut from Fango Editor, Chris Alexander, will be playing Times Scare in New York, for its New York premiere on January 29th. The short, which is influenced by the works of such Euro directors as Jean Rollin and Jess Franco, was also written, edited and scored by Alexander. He'll also be there in person for a Q & A about the film. More details below.

New York, NY – BLOOD FOR IRINA, an experimental dialogue-free “fever dream,” heavily influenced by the sensual works of EuroHorror directors Jean Rollin and Jess Franco, written, directed, co-shot, edited and scored by writer and FANGORIA magazine editor Chris Alexander, has its New York premiere Tuesday, January 29th, at 9 pm at Manhattan's Times Scare.

A dying predator (Shauna Henry) stalks the streets at night looking for blood. She has lived over a century; tormented by painful memories, living in a run-down seaside motel. Her perceptions skewed, her body and mind revolting against her, her private hell is mirrored by the motel’s manager, driven by an obsession to protect Irina and keep her secrets safe. A broken prostitute (Carrie Gemmell) whose desperate plight may be worse than Irina's, also haunts the water’s edge. An immersive, minimalist tale of three people living on the fringe, trapped in literal and figurative decay.

Produced by Autonomy Pictures, BLOOD FOR IRINA has won several awards during its recent festival run, including Best Picture and Director at Buffalo Screams, Best Experimental Feature at PollyGrind in Las Vegas, Best Score at Toronto’s Blood in the Snow and Best Horror Film at the Philip K. Dick Film Festival in Brooklyn.

This special TIMES SCARE screening of BLOOD FOR IRINA will feature appearances by the cast as well as director Alexander who will engage in an extensive Q&A about the making of the film.
