Blade Trilogy

It’s another horror triple feature as we discuss and dissect the “Blade” trilogy with Donna Tha Dead, based on the Marvel horror comic. 

Join me and fellow Morbidly Beautiful podcaster Donna Tha Dead for a journey into the nightclubs and alleyways of the epic Blade Trilogy!

Blade is a 1998 American superhero film directed by Stephen Norrington and written by David S. Goyer. Based on the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name, it is the first installment of the Blade franchise. The film stars Wesley Snipes as the titular character. Blade is a Dhampir, a human with vampire strengths but not their weaknesses, who fights against vampires.

Blade was a commercial success, grossing $70 million at the U.S. box office and $60.2 million worldwide. Despite mixed reviews from film critics, the film received a positive reception from audiences and has since garnered a cult following. It is also hailed as one of Snipes’s signature roles.

Blade was noted as a dark superhero film for its time, as well as being Marvel’s first successful film and setting the stage for further comic book film adaptations. It was followed by two sequels, Blade II (2002) and Blade: Trinity (2004), both written by Goyer, who also directed the latter.
