Director Bob Willems’ recently retitled Renfield the Undead is in its first full week of post-production, and its star/screenwriter Phil Nichols has dropped a new batch of stills on us showcasing some of the make-up effects work by Facades FX.
Besides Nichols as the titular character, the cast include Julin, John Stevens (as Dracula), Cory Hart, Shelley Boozer, Mel House, Paul Damon, Joe Grisaffi, Tyler Tackett, and Keli Wolfe.
R. N. Renfield (Nichols), once the slave of Dracula, is now an insane vampire stalking a modern metropolis (Bayou City). Known as “The Bayou City Butcher”, he is pursued by Detective Paul Cranston, a driven homicide investigator who always gets his man.
Renfield is also sought by Mina Harker (newcomer Roxy Cook), now also a vampire, and her hybrid-vampire son, Quincy (Tackett). The dark pair are seeking a relic in Renfield’s possession: the skull Of Dracula. It is their intent to use the skull to resurrect Dracula and restore the house of Dracula.
It is a game of cat and mouse in which the mad vampire Renfield reveals his ancient past with the Vampire Lord Dracula and battles the forces of darkness and the mortals of Bayou City.
Nichols tells us they’re working night and day to get the film ready for its premiere at the Bram Stoker Film Festival in Whitby, England this October. To see what they’ve been up to, check out the rest of the new photos, which can be found on Page Six of our Renfield gallery or by clicking either of the below images.
