About the Film

Pearl (Cierra Ramirez, “The Fosters”) is a typical sixteen-year-old vampire. Fond of blood, allergic to the sun, and generally pretty evil. But after a mysterious attack leaves her able to survive in the daylight, everything changes. Pearl’s powerful family soon finds a way to take advantage of her new ability: they send Pearl to high school, to gather fresh young blood for an upcoming feast in honor of the Vampire King. The only problem is that Pearl is starting to grow a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends — especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache — to be slaughtered? Then again, she’s definitely dead if she lets her family down. What’s a sun-loving vamp to do?

“Drink, Slay, Love” is based on a popular YA novel by Sarah Beth Durst. Gregg Sulkin also stars in the film. “Drink, Slay, Love” is produced by Just Singer Entertainment / Sepia Films / Honalee Entertainment. Sheri Singer executive produces; Bella Thorne co-executive produces. Tina Pehme and Kim C. Roberts serve as producers. Vanessa Parise serves as director, and Eirene Donohue as a writer.
