The moon is set to influence inquiring minds, as Full Moon Features begun principal photography earlier this week on the first of the feature films in its ‘Deadly Ten’ anthology series. ‘The Deadly Ten’ is Full Moon Features’s initiative that features the studio producing ten original films, and live-streaming their productions free for fans at the series’ official website.
‘TheDeadly Ten’s website is also featuring uncensored pre-production videos, FX tutorials and casting sessions for each movie that fans can access 24 hours a day. Once completed, the anthology will premiere exclusively on Full Moon Features’ streaming channels.
‘Halloweed Night: Meet the Weedjies’ is the inaugural film that’s being produced through ‘The Deadly Ten’ series, and is being directed by Danny Draven. The movie is a ganja-filled take on Charles Band cult classic, ‘Ghoulies.’ The wacky comedy features legendary genre actress Barbara Crampton, ‘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 movie critic Shawn “Cool Duder” Phillips. The film was written by Shane Bitterling, and is being shot in Las Vegas.
Immediately following the filming of ‘Halloweed Night,’ Full Moon Features will start production on filmmaker and former Fangoria magazine editor Chris Alexander’s ‘Necropolis: Legion.’ Gothic, brooding and bloody, the movie is a surreal, Eurotrash-tinted companion film to the classic 1986 Band-produced Empire Pictures exploitation film. The new movie features a demonic vampire witch named Eva (Ali Chappell), who drinks blood through her breasts, while possessing a young writer (Augie Duke), who’s doing research on her story. Production will begin in Canada on June 22.
