Renfield: The Un-Dead had its long awaited home video release earlier this week, and in honor of the occasion Melissa Nichols, one of the film's producers who also worked as production designer, art director, and special makeup effects artist/creature effects assistant (and had a small role in the film - talk about wearing a lot of hats!), sent over a batch of behind-the-scenes lobby cards for us to share.
Demonic summonings, battles between good and evil, a cup which runneth over with hotties…The Jezebeth franchise has it all. It's a feature film, musical experience, and potential television series. And if you're going to be in the Chicago area on September 10, you could be part of the action.
Renfield: The Un-Dead, a movie we've been reporting on for quite a while now, is hitting home video courtesy of R Squared Films, and finally everyone will have a chance to see it for themselves this coming October 25th.
We received word recently that the world premiere screening of vampire horror film Jezebeth will be held at the Portage Theater in Chicago on Sunday, June 5, 2011. This historic theater can seat up to 1,400 people and has a giant screen that will bring the demon Jezebeth to viewers in a larger than life presentation.
Fresh off its win of two Remi awards at the 44th annual Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival, indie horror vampire tale Renfield: The Un-Dead, directed by Bob Willems, written and produced by SFX master Phil Nichols, and starring Nichols in the title role, has launched a clever series of promo images featuring Renfield leaving his mark on history.
The folks at Poison Apple Films have lifted the curtain a bit on what went on behind-the-scenes during the shooting of Renfield: The Un-Dead, including a special effects "sizzle" reel and a gag reel that shows what happened when Phil Nichols, dressed in character as Renfield, encountered a landscaper on the set.
We've been talking about director Bob Willems' Renfield: The Un-Dead for quite a while now, and in case you've been wondering when you might be able to see it, if you happen to live in or around the Houston, Texas, area, you're in luck!
Some more movement on Damien Dante's indie flick Jezebeth has come in along with a brand spanking new piece of artwork. Read on for both ... cold off the slab! From the press release:
One indie project we've been following for a while now is Bob Willems' Renfield: The Un-Dead, and today we learned that the film's distribution will be handled by The Phoenix Group, the same entity that will be distributing the 2010 Boggy Creek remake from Brian T. Jaynes.
