Dawn of the Dead Historian Roy Frumkes Offers New Fiend Without a Face Update
We reported that Roy Frumkes (Document of the Dead, Street Trash) owned the rights to Arthur Crabtree's 1958 creature feature Fiend Without a Face way back in 2010. Finally an update on it and more has come.
"I’ve wanted to do this film for 40 years, so I already had it all in my head, and it wasn’t hard to write. What I didn’t have was the technical information; I’m no science buff. Now I’m interviewing scientists, getting the technology straight,” Frumkes tells Fango. "It’s set in a think tank in the Berkshires, and it’s not about young people. It’s a mature film, but it has a Street Trash sensibility, so the people who like my work will not be disappointed.”
The site also scored a still from a fund-raising trailer Frumkes shot for his Fiend flick with director Franco Frassetti, which features Ursula Anderman tussling with the still invisible Fiend.
Original Film Synopsis
A scientist's thoughts materialize as an army of invisible brain-shaped monsters (complete with spinal-cord tails!) who terrorize an American military base in this nightmarish chiller, directed by Arthur Crabtree (Horrors of the Black Museum). This outstanding sci-fi/horror hybrid is a special effects bonanza and a high-water mark in British genre filmmaking.
