Paco Plaza Expands Faux Vampire Film Damned Friday into a Feature
The immediate reaction we horror fans have to any faux teaser trailer we dig is that we want to see it become reality, is it not? Following in the footsteps of Machete Kills and Clown, REC co-director Paco Plaza is making such a desire come true. Read on!
A few years back, Plaza directed a 50-second faux teaser for a vampire film called Damned Friday (Maldito Viernes), which spawned a comic book and had many fans begging for a feature.
As reported by Variety, Plaza will indeed be directing a feature-length expansion on the teaser, which begins filming this coming July over in Spain.
REC 3's Leticia Dolera will star as a young woman who struggles with her family and boyfriend before becoming a vampire.
The Spanish-language film is set to be shot in color, with Adrian Guerra attached as producer.
"I’ve shot a werewolf movie, a bunch of zombie films, but as a horror film fan, I felt I really wanted to shoot a vampire film," says Plaza. “There’s only one thing I can say for sure: There will be blood.”
Check out the original faux teaser below, which gives you a taste of what you can expect from Plaza's foray into bloodsucking horrors!
