BBQ Films, is organizing a high-end reenactment of the opening scene from 1998’s Blade starring Wesley Snipes. The “Blade Rave” party will recreate the “Blood Bath” rave scene in which we’re introduced to the titular vampire hunter (Snipes).


Vampires of New York City: BBQ Films & Deacon Frost invite you to an epic blood rave.

This is no ordinary gathering. As the ancient prophecy foretold, you will party with the spirits of the 12 vampire houses and awaken the legendary La Magra, the Blood God. Vampires have lived among humans long enough. This October, come celebrate our rightful place atop the food chain. Spread the word. Sharpen your fangs. And plan to wear something that you don’t mind getting a little…bloody.

Step into 1998’s BLADE film at the first big Halloween party of 2015. Electronic musicians The Crystal Method headline BLADE RAVE with support from Pictureplanea place both wonderful and strange, and DJ Choyce Hacks. All lovers of music, film, vampires, Halloween, and of course BLADE–this party’s for you.
