The independent fright feature RENFIELD THE UNDEAD, a new take on the Dracula saga, is racing toward completion. And now some lobby card-style pictures have come through that give us a peek at Drac himself from the movie; see ’em, along with a new poster, after the jump!
“We are down to the wire; the Whitby cut of the movie is due in England for the Bram Stoker Film Festival in one week,” says writer/producer Phil Nichols, who also created the special makeup with Facades FX and plays the title role (as seen in the first photo below). “The world premiere is scheduled to be the opening Friday-night event of the festival. We’ll be launching the movie’s official website and posting the trailer within the week; here at long last are images of our Count Dracula, portrayed thrillingly by veteran stage actor John W. Stevens.” The last pic demonstrates how the vampire’s image will be translated to comics form for an upcoming graphic novel adaptation, illustrated by Melissa L. Nichols. See our previous report on RENFIELD THE UNDEAD, which was directed by Bob Willems and also stars Paul Damon, Keli Wolfe, Roxy Cook, Tyler Tackett and Julin, here.
