Glenn Danzig has officially finished the filming process for his upcoming vampire spaghetti western. This will be the frontman’s second film, following “Verotika,” which was released earlier this year.
Danzig said the following about the vampire movie during a Q&A session at the Philadelphia screening of “Verotika”:
“We just finished my vampire spaghetti western. It’s much different [from ‘Verotika’], of course, because there’s no comic book to follow. So we had pretty free rein in the movie… All the characters have like a traditional vampire name and a traditional western name… A lot of guest cameos in it — some friends of mine came in and did some cameos in the movie. It’s, again, based on the European cinema.”
“A spaghetti western is, basically… The Italians loved American westerns so much, they started doing their own westerns. And they got Clint Eastwood and Henry Fonda and a bunch of other actors — Charles Bronson — to come over and do these wild Italian westerns. And we eventually started calling them spaghetti westerns. In mine, everybody’s a vampire. So you don’t have to wait around to see the vampire — everybody’s a vampire. You don’t have to wait around to see blood — you’re gonna see lots of blood… It’s pretty crazy.”
Danzig also confirmed that he makes a cameo in the film:
“It’s such a small part. But it was a lot of fun. I get to get all bloody, which I love being bloody — it’s part of what I do.”
