In a boldly original spin on the vampire genre, the short film Spout enters the absurdly comic world of a motherless boy and his grandmother, who become unlikely serial killers in a quest to eliminate his father’s girlfriends.

Spout screens at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on Saturday May 1 at 10pm.

The film was directed by Chamorro filmmaker Alex Muñoz, who deliberately cast people of color in key roles as a German family determined to assimilate into American culture in the early sixties. Spout film stars renowned actress Rena Owen (Once Were Warriors) as Oma, and introduces Tristan Bice-Bey as her grandson Bobby.

The story is by Laurence A. Rickels, the “Vampire Professor”, merging his vampirism expertise with childhood experience. It was produced by filmmakers of Pacific Islander heritage: Alex, Rena, Hawai’i-based James Sereno and Karin Williams (Cook Islands/Aotearoa).

A devoted grandmother will stop at nothing to keep her beloved grandson close – even murder.

Spout is a cross-cultural, camp, comedy-horror mash-up starring Rena Owen (Once Were Warriors, Star Wars) and introducing Tristan Bice-Bey.

The short dramatic feature film premiers at the San Francisco Asian International Film Festival in March 2010.

Spout was directed by Alex Munoz (Chamorro) and produced by an entirely Pacific producer team: Alex, Rena, Hawai’i-based James Sereno and Karin Williams (Cook Islands/Aotearoa).
