Director Albert Pyun sent us over a peek at some new teaser art for his forthcoming Tales of an Ancient Empire featuring its newest co-star, Victoria Maurette, who portrays a daywalking vampire assassin in the film.
Never one to shy away from graphic sex and violence, Pyun promises the following from Maurette’s character: “Victoria is really playing a different vampire — a creature who is aroused by perverse violence and is sexually gratified by inflicting ritualistic torture on her victims.
I don’t think there’s been a more frightening character in fantasy films. She’s not a villain; she’s a psychotic and depraved killer.”
A brief synopsis of Tales of an Ancient Empire, which also stars Christopher Lambert, Melissa Ordway, Kevin Sorbo, Lee Horsley, and Jennifer Siebel Newsom, is as follows: A princess (Ordway) is on a quest to unite the five greatest warriors to save her kingdom from a demon sorceress. But the odyssey to find them reveals a secret past for all.
Keep is here for more on Tales as it comes, and if you’ll be in or around Irving, Texas on April 30-May 2, you’ll want to hit the Texas Frightmare Weekend, where Pyun will be a guest along with the likes of John Carpenter, George Romero, Doug Bradley, Julian Sands, and a host of other horror icons.
