[Trailer] Chris Alexander's 'Necropolis: Legion' Reimagines Empire Pictures' Exploit

Necropolis: Legion Chris Alexander Trailer

It's been quite some time since an indie horror movie trailer has given me chills, but this new one for Chris Alexander's (Blood Dynasty, Female Werewolf, Blood for Irina) Necropolis: Legion has effectively done so!

The second film in Full Moon's Deadly Ten project, Necropolis: Legion is a re-imagining of the 1986 Empire Pictures exploitation movie classic Necropolis and tells the tale of the malevolent vampire sorceress Eva (Ali Chappell), whose sexually-charged midnight rituals are interrupted when her vengeful husband (Joseph Lopez) murders her, sending her soul to the netherworld.

Years later, when occult writer Lisa (Augie Duke, Trauma Is a Time Machine, Bad Kids Go to Hell) moves into the same haunted farm where Eva was executed, she begins having vivid, perverse dreams and slowly, surely, Eva’s spirit begins taking over the young woman’s mind, using her body as a vessel to return to earth and take Lisa as her unholy bride, while a local mystic (Lynn Lowry, The Crazies, Shivers) fights to protect her.

Alexander directed the film from a script by comic writer Brockton McKinney.

Full Moon head honcho Charles Band (Tourist Trap, Parasite, Puppet Master) produces the film that also features an original score by Richard Band (From Beyond, Re-Animator).

Necropolis: Legion will have its sneak peek premiere on the Full Moon Features streaming channel and app on November 29th before launching on Amazon Prime in the U.S., UK, and Germany on December 2nd.

A Blu-ray release is planned for 2020.
