With a work schedule that rivals that of the proverbial one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest, Bill Oberst, Jr., is becoming the male version of Debbie Rochon. He’s now added one more project: upcoming horror flick Lord Bateman. Read on for an early look at the production.
Lord Bateman is being created by Dismal Productions. Producers are Seth Metoyer and Bill Oberst, Jr. For more info visit the official Dismal Productions website and “like” Dismal Productions on Facebook.
From the Press Release
Lord Bateman is slated for a 2014 release, and the film stars Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies). Oberst, Jr. plays Bateman, a noble who sees himself more as a demon than a mortal. He stalks Europe in search of ever more victims to act out his devilish ways. Early production has involved a photo shoot with actresses Anna Pullig and Alice Orozco participating. Make-up artist Mark Andrews (Kaboom) has lent his talents and liters of blood to the shoot as well. His work can be seen in the photos below. And these stills have been brought together in a short video, which shows the film’s dark tone and proficiency in the creation of demonic makeup. This is truly an evil production.
Actor Oberst Jr. has something to say of the film’s story. Lord Bateman is set during the 16th Century in Europe, where Bateman seeks out and dismembers his victims. Is Lord Bateman a demon with evil powers or merely a mortal caught in delusion? Actor Oberst Jr. says of the film’s evil and of his character: “I believe in Satan…and I know from personal experience that he is a liar and a thief.” Decide Bateman’s fate and conscience with this short production video, which is waiting below!
Lord Bateman is a man of royal lineage who is plagued by visions of himself as a demon. He comes to believe that he actually is a demon, cursed to live a human existence as punishment for some infraction down below. The question is whether he is right…or delusional. Of course, to his victims it matters little.
