At the recent premiere of Dave Zagorski’s Killing Brooke, Mad Z Productions debuted the teaser trailer for his next project, The Devil’s Nightmare, and we have it for you right here along with a few photos and some preliminary details of what the film is about.
From the Press Release:
A remake of Jean Brismee’s Belgian/Italian film from 1971 (not released in America until 1974 and alternately titled “La plus longue nuit du diable”, “Castle of Death”, “La terrificante notte del demonio” and “Succubus”), starring Seregon O’Dassey and Devanny Pinn.
The Devil’s Nightmare is once again written and directed by Dave Zagorski. Regular Mad Z players Johnny Donaldson, Kt Baldassaro, Colin Allen, Ray Hryb, Dina Baker, and Chris Shanahan (all encoring from Killing Brooke) return alongside newcomer Camee Manderfield in this gory tale of demonic temptation and terror. Jared Skolnick, an award-winning director in his own right (for his short H.P. Lovecraft adaptation The Music of Erich Zann), reprises cinematographer duties from Killing Brooke, shooting on the Canon EOS 7D.
The original Devil’s Nightmare centered on a group of tourists who are forced to take shelter at an old Gothic castle owned by Baron von Rhoneberg. There they are joined by a mysterious stranger who turns out to be a succubus, or a servant of the Devil. Each one of the tourists is supposed to represent one of the 7 deadly sins (but with the exception of 3, it’s hard to decipher which person represents which sin) and are killed accordingly, but about halfway through the movie that concept is seemingly abandoned.
This new version of The Devil’s Nightmare modernizes the story a bit. It now takes place at an experimental rehab clinic where Dr. Rhoneberg is attempting to cure a group of people of their vices. Among the group are a drug addict, a sex addict, an alcoholic, and an actress with an eating disorder. There is still a 7 Deadly Sins motif all the way through, but it’s a little more obvious who represented what. As with the original, they are joined by a mysterious stranger who may or may not be a succubus.
O’Dassey plays the part of Lisa, originated by Erica Blanc, and Pinn tackles the role of Satan, played in the 1971 version by Daniel Emilfork. Post-production on the film is under way with a hoped for release the end of this year.
