The Time Has Come! Glenn Danzig’s Western Vampire Tale Hits Theaters Tomorrow

I have to admit to you – everything about this flick intrigues me. The fact that it’s a western – the unique cast – the fact that everyone in the flick is a freaking vampire, and last but not least, the fact that it comes from the mind of Glenn Danzig. Don’t get me wrong, I am certainly not expecting a horror masterpiece but it feels to me like this could just be one hell of a ride – and we’ll find out soon because Death Rider In The House Of Vampires is hitting theaters tomorrow, Friday, August 27th.

Granted it’s not a huge release – a couple of hundred theaters but, it’s still gonna be out there and if it’s landing anywhere near you – you know you have to be there.

CLICK HERE for a listing of the screens you’ll be able to check it out.

Story-wise – here’s what the scoop is:

In “Death Rider in the House of Vampires”, the mysterious “Death Rider” – clad all in black – travels thru the desert on horseback. His destination…Vampire Sanctuary. The entrance fee…one Female Virgin. Once inside he encounters Count Holliday, Vampire Lord of Sanctuary who warns him against any transgressions. Blood & Guns action follows as Death Rider tangles with some of the Vampires of Sanctuary like the smoldering Carmilla Joe with her sidekick Mina Belle and Vampire Gunslingers Drac Cassidy, Bad Bathory, Kid Vlad & Duke VonWayne. 

And Danzig has managed to amass a rather impressive cast – check it out:

“Death Rider in the House of Vampires” stars Danny Trejo (MACHETE, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN), Julian Sands (THE KILLING FIELDS, BOXING HELENA, WARLOCK), Devon Sawa (FINAL DESTINATION, IDLE HANDS), Kim Director (THE DEUCE, BLAIR WITCH 2) and Eli Roth (INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, CABIN FEVER) & Writer/Director Glenn Danzig in a Supporting Role as Vampire Gunslinger Bad Bathory.

We’ve got our hands on a clip of the man himself talking all about the film – give a watch.
