Tamera Kissen, who was been in the House Party reboot and the White Men Can’t Jump remake, stars in the vampire movie Fanged
Comedian, actress, influencer, model, and entrepreneur Tamera Kissen was recently seen in the House Party reboot and the Tubi release You’re Not Alone. When the White Men Can’t Jump remake reaches the Hulu streaming service on May 19th, she’ll be seen in that film as well. And now Deadline reports that Kissen stars in the vampire horror film Fanged, which recently wrapped production in Atlanta, Georgia.
Kissen in joined in the Fanged cast by Selena Anduze (WandaVision), Tyler Abron (Lace), Pauline Brown (King Bachelor’s Pad), newcomer Mataya Sweeting, Ravyn Rochelle (Good Intentions), Ashley Nocera (King Bachelor’s Pad), and Kylie Jordan (The Things We Survive: Amber Brown).
The film tells the story of a group of young vampires celebrating the “Blood Day” of one of their own, Jasmine. After feasting on a local party’s favor during the celebrations, they find themselves in a deadly situation: They are trapped by an invisible barrier that forms out of nowhere and burns them every time they try to escape. Trying their best not to panic, they ration the remaining blood they have collected. But it becomes clear that if they do not feed soon, they will all perish. As the days wear on and their chances of escape diminish, the vampires unleash the true monsters inside them all.
Fanged marks the feature directorial debut of George Watson and Kapers Williams, who have previously directed a series of music videos together. Watson is better known for being the co-author of the graphic novel Sorcerority, which is set to receive a film adaptation from the production company team-up of Gabrielle Union’s I’ll Have Another Productions, Taraji P. Henson. Sorcerority is about a young girl attending a school of magic and following in the footsteps of her late mother, who was a powerful sorceress.
Watson and Williams also produced Fanged, with Matt Nicholas and Nastassja Kayln executive producing.
Fanged sounds interesting to me, and the “trapped in one location” set-up tends to work well for first-time filmmakers, so I look forward to seeing how this one is going to turn out. Are you interested in Fanged? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
