Published

on

Nelly Karim and Dhafer L’Abidine reunite for a new exciting project for Halloween! For the first time ever, we will get to see an Arabic series about vampires!

Bloodline‘ is set to become the very first vampire horror film from the Arab world. In the teasers, we see how Nelly and Dhafer, parents of twin boys, performs an unusual unorthodox plan to bring one of their sons back to life from the coma he got in following an accident.

Even though they succeed in bringing the boy to life, he soon starts to exhibit odd behaviors and we can see that hell is about to let loose!

The movie will air on October 30, just in time for Halloween and will be exclusive to the MENA region and you can catch it on the streaming service Shahid VIP.

The movie is written and directed by Rami Yasin.

“Of course, I was excited to take part in this production, because the role is completely different for me,” says Dhafer L’Abidine. “And as the first Arabic-language vampire thriller, it’s also different for audiences in the region. It made for a very unique experience and I am very happy with it.”

Nelly adds, “This film was an incredible project to be a part of. It was fantastic to be reunited with Dhafer in our first feature film together, and I’m sure fans will be intrigued by our unconventional onscreen roles. This is an exceptional film for the region and I can’t wait for audiences to stream it this month.”We’re both excited and fearful of the movie! What are your expectations?
