Most of us here at TNC are big fans of Charles Band and his brand of wackiness that is Full Moon. In fact, I’m almost certain that Nat Brehmer was born on a full moon. With that said, we were thrilled to learn about Deadly Ten.
Starting this June, Full Moon will start production on 10 original genre films and the entire process will be live-streamed in front of fans over at DeadlyTen.com. Involving fans in this way is a pretty exciting and unprecedented move. It’ll be fun to take a peak behind the curtain and see these films come together from the ground up, in real time.
“This is one of the most exciting Full Moon production initiatives since our ’90s video store heyday,” says Full Moon founder and cult movie legend Charles Band. “It’s ambitious, high concept, a bit insane and there’s never been another interactive filmmaking concept quite like this. As Full Moon thrives in the new terrain of streaming and takes viewers to places not many have gone before, we hope fans will love being a part of our new adventure!”
While that is all fine and dandy, the truly exciting part comes with the actual films that will come from this new endeavor. Per the official press release, said films “will include sequels of beloved Full Moon franchises, a spin on classic cult favorites, and daring soon-to-be essential genre films.”
Color me intrigued.
Oh, what’s that? We actually know the films and the directors making them? Do tell!
The Deadly Ten film slate will include:
- Blade: The Iron Cross (Dir: John Lechago)
- Bride of the Head of the Family (Dir: Charles Band)
- Necropolis: Legion (Dir: Chris Alexander)
- Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama 2 (Dir: David De Coteau, Brinke Stevens)
- Blood Rise: Subspecies V (Dir: Ted Nicolaou)
- Halloweed Night (Dir: Danny Draven)
- The Hourglass (Dir: Ryan Brookhart)
- Femalien: Cosmic Crush (Dir: Lindsey Schmitz)
- The Shadowheart Curse (Dir: Charles Band)
- The Grim Rapper (Dir: Billy Butler)
Ok, I’m down for all these. Look, I get that some of these movies will be silly. I mean The Grim Rapper? How can that not be absurd?! And I think we can safely say that they’ll all be pretty cheap, but you know what? Who cares! Goofy, cheap fun is just part of the Full Moon charm! Give me some films with passion from filmmakers having a good time, and I’ll be satisfied. I have a pretty good feeling that Deadly Ten will more than deliver on that.
