"Sangre fresca" (Spain)
TRUE BLOOD chronicles the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps … where vampires have emerged from the coffin, and no longer need humans for their fix. Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin, Golden Globe®-winner for True Blood, Academy Award®-winner for The Piano) works as a waitress at the rural bar Merlotte's. Though outwardly a typical young woman, she keeps a dangerous secret: she has the ability to hear the thoughts of others. Her situation is further complicated when the bar gets its first vampire patron — 173-year-old Bill Compton (Steven Moyer, Quills) — and the two outsiders are immediately drawn to each other. Delivering the best of what audiences have come to expect from Creator and Executive Producer Alan Ball (writer of Oscar®-winning Best Picture American Beauty, creator of the Emmy® Award-winning HBO® series Six Feet Under), TRUE BLOOD is a dark and sexy tale that boldly delves into the heart — and the neck — of the Deep South.
The evocative score — slightly seasoned with regional influence — is composed and performed by Hostel veteran Nathan Barr.
