Doyle (Misfits) Set To Star In New Horror Film “Death Ward 13”

Doyle (Misfits) has been recruited to star in an upcoming horror film called “Death Ward 13.” He will play a killer named The Duke in the movie, which is essentially a reimagined version of the cult-classic “Don’t Look In The Basement.”

Doyle said the following:

”I’m looking forward to starting my movie career with a starring role in ‘Death Ward 13’. It’s time to release the beast on the big screen. Let the killing begin!”

Bruce Miyaki of Insane Management also commented

“With Doyle’s horror punk background, we’ve always been looking for opportunities to have him cross over into film, but nothing has sparked his interest until now. ‘Death Ward 13’ is a great breakout film for Doyle – his fans are going to love it.”

Director Todd Nunes added:

“I’m excited to work with Doyle. Doyle will be portraying a ruthless killer called The Duke – a psychopath and the most twisted and terrifying character in the movie. I’m a big fan of Doyle and his music and always thought he would make a menacing horror movie villain. With his threatening looks and massive build, this man will scare the crap out of everyone. Get ready for a horrifying ride!”

Film Synopsis:

“It’s 1973 and the Stephens Sanitarium for the Criminally Insane prepares to shut down permanently. Days before closing, four beautiful nursing students arrive to care for the last handful of “harmless” mental patients in a suspiciously understaffed ward. Confronted by their violent charges, the nurses soon realize that they are trapped inside the asylum with a deadly crew of vicious lunatics. Each patient has their own perverse identity, their own personal demons, and their own violent agenda. Pushed to the brink of insanity, the young nurses find themselves in a gruesome fight for survival inside Ward 13.

Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer To Appear In New Horror Movie “Murder Hill”

Five Finger Death Punch’s Jeremy Spencer is set to appear in a new horror movie called “Murder Hill.” He said the following about that:

“I was hooked on horror since I was six when I walked in on my parents watching The Exorcist, just as Regan’s head was swiveling. I’ve been hooked from that point on. This is going to be a lot of fun, and I know our Five Finger Death Punch fans will dig it!”

The film was written and produced by Anna and Mark Casadei who happen to be Five Finger Death Punch fans themselves. Mark commented:

“I got to admit, I had a fanboy moment! I have always admired his skill on a drum set, and his persona on stage is pure amazing to watch.”

Anna added:

“If you know his music, his style of playing, and his stage presence, you get a feel how that will relate onscreen.”

The movie, which loosley focuses on the murders that have taken place in Rome, NY since the ’70s, stars Tom Proctor (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Birth of a Nation), Marilyn Ghigliotti (Clerks) and Basil Hoffman (Ordinary People, My Favorite Year).
