Blade (1998)

Blade Quote: “When you understand the nature of a thing…you know what it’s capable of” – Blade

“Blade” left a mark on every ’90s teen—the music, the fashion, the detailed breakdown of the vampire economy—but many forget it also kicked off Marvel’s string of cinematic success. It was darker than any superhero film we’d ever seen, and it had a sense of humor.

With a blazing fast origin story and immediate action, this movie had our attention from the jump, inspiring conversations about the proper way for vampires to age, Wesley Snipes’ fighting style, whether vampires should have a living wage, and how an ancient temple ends up in Detroit.

In this episode, Big D volunteers to get “gothed up.” Ash explains her undying attraction to Stephen Dorff, and Gene details how vampires are born. The Shat Crew also ranks the four bloodsucking movies it’s covered so far: “Blade,” “The Lost Boys,” “Interview with the Vampire,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.”

Plot Summary: “Blade” A half-mortal, half-immortal is out to avenge his mother’s death and rid the world of vampires. The modern-day technologically advanced vampires he is going after are in search of his special blood type needed to summon an evil god who plays a key role in their plan to execute the human race.
