It’s taken a couple of years with a few title changes along the way, but the world premiere of director Bob Willems’ Renfield: The Undead is taking place in a few short weeks at the Bram Stoker Film Festival in Whitby, England, which runs October 14-17. In honor of the event at long last we’ve been provided with some images of Count Dracula from the film.
The movie’s official website and trailer are launching within the week, but in the meantime here’s our first good look at Count Dracula as portrayed by veteran stage actor John W. Stevens. Check him out below the synopsis along with a few other goodies like another new concept poster (the others can be found by clicking here).
Along with Stevens, the cast includes the film’s screenwriter, Phil Nichols, as Renfield, Julin, 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.
