A while back, it was announced that Full Moon Pictures would be working on a new ten-film anthology that would be available to live-stream for fans of the genre. Now, in the immortal words of Mortal Kombat villain Shang Tsung in 1995: It has begun!
Production has begun on the first two films of the anthology. What are the two titles? They are Halloweed Night: Meet the Weedjies and Necropolis: Legion.
The first film to begin production, Halloweed Night: Meet the Weedjies, is directed by Danny Draven (Reel Evil) is what is described as a ganja-filled version of Ghoulies.The wacky, weed-choked comedy creeper features a motely crew including The Howard Stern Show’s Richard Christy and Medicated Pete, comedian Ester Goldberg, Evil Bong franchise veteran Mindy Robinson, Playboy superstar Bridget Marquardt, and internet film critic Shawn “Cool Duder” Phillips. The film was written by Shane Bitterling and produced by Charles Band. Lensing will take place in the city of sin itself, Las Vegas, starting today!
After completion of Halloweed Night, the Deadly Ten will unveil Necropolis: Legion. Former editor of Fangoria magazine and filmmaker Chris Alexander will helm the film, which is described as gothic, brooding and bloody. The film is a surreal, Eurotrash-tinted companion film to the classic 1986 Band-produced Empire Pictures exploitation film. The film features a demonic vampire witch named Eva (Ali Chappell) who drinks blood through her breasts, while possessing a young writer (Augie Duke) doing research on her story. Production will take place in Canada starting on June 22, 2019.
