Director Barak Epstein, a local boy who got his start being Troma-tized by Lloyd Kaufman, sends word that he's spilling his made-around-town Blood on the Highway July 11 at the Lakewood Theater. Also on the bill with the tongue-in-neck vampire film, notes Epstein: "a few other local short films and then performances from bands on the soundtrack including Tomer Omi and 100 Damned Guns!" After the jump, the not-kid-friendly trailer. --Robert Wilonsky
