This year’s Cinepocalypse will open with the World Premiere of Glenn Danzig‘s hotly anticipated Verotika on June 13th, and today we've got a brand new look at the film in the form of a heart-ripping new photo.
The punk/metal legend (Misfits, Samhain, Danzig) has turned to directing with a feature film adaptation of his popular Verotika comic characters for Cleopatra Entertainment.
Glenn’s passion for film, the occult, and all things ghouls ‘n ghosts has long influenced his music, and now he’s taking these elements to the big screen, the press release explains. Featuring a plot shrouded in secrecy, a soundtrack of new Danzig music, and based on the output of his comic book publishing company Verotik—a compound of “violence” and “erotic”—this feature film anthology is a realization of his lifelong love of comics and the dark arts.
The cast of Verotika includes Ashley Wisdom as “Dajette” in a segment called “The Albino Spider of Dajette”; Rachel Alig in “Change of Face”; Alice Haig as the title character “Drukija” in “Drukija Contessa of Blood”; Kayden Kross as the title character in “Morella”; Scotch Hopkins as the “Albino Spider of Dajette”; Sean Kanan as “Sgt. Anders” in “Change of Face”; and Natalia Borowsky as “Sheska” in “Drukija Contessa of Blood”.
Danzig will be in attendance at the film's premiere.
