Last night an e-mail showed up with info and the first pics from a new indie vampire film called Bram Stoker’s Vampire Diaries. Normally I would dismiss this out of hand since, well, vampire movies generally suck, but something about this project made me want to share it with you guys.
Vampire Diaries is the first of a planned eight(!) films from indie production outfit Poison Apple Films. It is produced, written by, and stars Phil Nichols, who is also doing most of the FX work as well. Now that’s the indie spirit! The story follows what happened to Mina and Renfield after Dracula’s demise; from the look of the pics neither of them adjusted too well to being without the caped one.
Through his company Facades FX Nichols also recently worked on Mel House’s “>Walking Distance, Barry Tubb’s Javelina and one of Foy’s favorite films of all time, “>S.I.C.K. (review). Hopefully Vampire Diaries will turn out better than that one did…
