Posted by Sarah Anne Luoma On November - 8 - 2012 0 Comment

After nearly two decades, Director George Sluizer has finished up on the film ‘Dark Blood’ that stars the late River Phoenix. The movie was in production mode when Phoenix died 19 years ago from a drug overdose outside of the Viper Room. Now after all this time the film has made its debut at the Netherlands Film Festival. In order to finish the drama, the 80-year old Sluizer was said to have used voiceovers, tying them into incomplete scenes that featured the Jimmy Reardon star. The movie is said to be on its way to several U.S. festivals soon.

Per IMDb, ‘Dark Blood’ follows “nuclear testing and its long-lasting deadly effects.” The story “portrays Boy, a young widower living in the desert on a nuclear testing site. Living as a hermit, he waits for the end of the world carving Katchina dolls that he believes have magical powers. While traveling on a “second” honeymoon across the Arizona desert,the car of a Hollywood jet-set couple breaks down. They are rescued by Boy, who holds them prisoners because he desires the woman and wants to create a better world with her.” Jonathan Pryce and Judy Davis also star in the soon to be released film. Watch the trailer below.
