We first met Radu the vampire in Full Moon's 1991 film Subspecies, which went on to spawn a franchise that ran late into the '90s. The last entry in the franchise, Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm, was released in 1998, meaning it's now been well over two decades since we've last seen the rat-fanged vamp. But it looks like that's about to change!
Over on the Full Moon Features site today, the company revealed more info about their Deadly Ten initiative, a banner under which ten brand-new Full Moon films will be produced, while also teasing the return of Subspecies.
Read the full statement, direct from Full Moon, below.
“This week, we’re going to reveal everything you need to know about the DEADLY TEN in a news release that will be going wide. But until then, we’ll give you a little hint. One word: SUBSPECIES.
We know that many of you Full Moon freaks are crazy about our 4-movie strong SUBSPECIES series, the franchise of high-concept fright films that follow the evil legacy of the rat-fanged vampire Radu and his reign of undead terror. It’s been over 20 years since we released SUBSPECIES 4: BLOODSTORM and admirers of the movies have been clamoring for more ever since.
And while we CAN’T tell you everything just yet, if you ARE a SUBSPECIES fan, well…let’s just say that you should be REALLY excited about the DEADLY TEN.
It’s about damn time we saw our old pal Radu again…don’t you think?
Yes. So do we.”
Attached to the announcement was a poster (below) for Subspecies 5, starring Andrew Hovel.
