Storyline

From a Producer of "Hero" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" comes "Blood: The Last Vampire," based on the cult hit series. Demons have infested the earth. And only one warrior stands between the dark and the light: Saya, a half-human, half-vampire samurai who preys on those who feast on human blood. Joining forces with the shadowy society known as the Council, Saya is dispatched to an American military base, where an intense series of swordfights leads her to the deadliest vampire of all. And now after 400 years, Saya's final hunt is about to begin.

Trivia

Bill Kong and Ronny Yu originally planned to finance the project themselves, but in November 2006, Production I.G officially consented to the film and began offering financial support.

In early announcements, it was stated that the film would be set in 1948 at a United States Army camp in Tokyo, shortly after the conclusion of World War II during the American occupation of Japan. During production, the film was shifted to be set in the 1970s instead.
