“Sacred Blood” was highlighted in the “local flavors” section of the San Francisco Chronicle’s article “Mill Valley’s Feast of Film.”  Sacred Blood was the only feature film listed among 4 documentaries in this selection of locally shot pictures.  

Sacred Blood: This visually imaginative, over-the-top (intentionally so) vampire flick is a love letter of sorts to the darker side of San Francisco. There are no cable cars or crooked streets or postcard pretty images here. Director Christopher Coppola takes us to some familiar places, yet they somehow seem so unfamiliar — empty and brooding and sinister. The effect is deliriously strange. But there’s another revelation here, too: Coppola’s son, Bailey (who plays vampire Natia’s love interest, Luke), is someone to watch. The kid has it.
