Blood Type is a sci-fi thriller set in futuristic Alabama. The story begins with most of the humans of the world being picked off by a deadly virus.

Unknown to the human race, the vampires that have existed peacefully beside them for hundreds of years have also been affected by the virus, creating vicious monsters that have started capturing the humans.

Those left alive do their best to survive in the post-apocalyptic world all while being preyed upon by these vicious creatures they know little about.

Eventually the surviving humans and vampires must band together to stop these deadly creatures before they kill everyone.

Shot on location in Alabama and with a local cast, this thriller will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
