From the Press Release:
Scorpio Film Releasing, the Rhode Island-based production company behind such genre hits as Nun of That and The Disco Exorcist, are at it again, nearing the end of production on their 13th feature film production: Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead. A celebration of horror and the genre’s greatest personalities, Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead is a terrifying, often funny experiment in terror introducing actress Jamie Lyn Bagley as Katherine and starring Michael Thurber (Murder University) in a new and twisted take on the sadistic Dr. Frankenstein. Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead is directed by Richard Griffin from a script by Seth Chitwood and Griffin.
Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead follows a group of teenagers who spend the night in a creepy wax museum in Salem, Massachusetts, only to find out that it’s the secret lair of Dr. Frankenstein, who has been performing profane experiments on the town residents to create… piece by piece… the ultimate nightmare.
Director Richard Griffin says, “For my thirteenth feature, I decided to go back to my roots and make a small, atmospheric, Euro-tinged horror film in the vein of one of my idols, Jess Franco. I was so lucky to find this amazing location (Count Orlok’s Nightmare Gallery) in Salem. My co-writer, Seth Chitwood, and I rapidly produced a screenplay in just a few days… and just a couple of weeks later we were on set and shooting! So far, the shoot has been a dream. The cast and crew are just amazing… and every day our talented FX artists are creating blood-soaked nightmares that I know the audience will just eat up!”
Bagley adds, “It’s been a blast! Such positive energy from everyone on set. I want to do this every day. It’s been my lifelong dream to be in a horror film, and I am so thrilled to live the dream!”
Thurber, who portrays Dr. Frankenstein, explains that this has been “absolutely the most fun I’ve had so far with SFR!! Could not be more excited to just get to the set!!”
Dr. Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead also stars Jesse Dufault (Murder University), Shannon Hartman, Johnny Sederquist, Aurora Grabill (The Disco Exorcist), Patrick Keeffe (Murder University), Aaron Peaslee (Murder University), Christopher Ferreira (The Disco Exorcist), Nat Sylva (Murder University), Ryan Hanley (Murder University), Beatriz Lopez, Andre Boudreau (Nun of That).
