Eric Brooks (Wesley Snipes) was still in his mother’s womb when she was bitten by a vampire. The effect was unique: he was born with all of the strengths of vampires, but none of their weaknesses. Growing up under the tutelage of his mentor Whistler (Kris Kristofferson), Eric becomes 'Blade' and swears to protect humanity from his bloodthirsty vampire kin.

However, Blade meets his match when a sect of bloodsuckers led by the tyrannical renegade Deacon Frost (Stephen Dorff) aim to summon the blood god La Magra and wipe out humankind.

Don't miss this pioneering superhero film, back at GFT for a special 4K screening.

If you're a fan of this cult title, Blade distributor Park Circus and We Are Parable have a great article online that explores this ground-breaking film, which saw Wesley Snipes as both star and producer, 20 years before Marvel's Black Panther. You can read it here but please note: the article contains plot and character information - i.e. spoilers! - so is best read after watching the film.
