7 May 2010 10:02 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Director Bob Willems' recently retitled Renfield the Undead is in its first full week of post-production, and its star/screenwriter Phil Nichols has dropped a new batch of stills on us showcasing some of the make-up effects work by Facades FX.

Updated Image Gallery for Indie Film Renfield

30 March 2010 3:30 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If there's anybody out in the indie world that sends us updates on their projects more often than the multi-talented Phil Nichols, I don't know who it is. Today he sent over a new batch of stills from Vampire Diaries Renfield, but best of all, they include the first shot of one of the creatures Nichols' Facades FX is doing for the film.

Phil, who, along with portraying Renfield, also wrote the screenplay, tells us, "Week 6 has wrapped. We did a lot of flying FX and aerial fight work on green screen for the climax. These pictures are from the Harkers' lair and all the naughty goings on that will happen in there..."

Besides Nichols, the stars include Julin, John Stevens (as Dracula), Cory Hart, Shelley Boozer, Mel House, Paul Damon, Joe Grisaffi, Tyler Tackett, and Keli Wolfe. The director is Bob Willems.

The new pictures begin on Page 4 of our Renfield gallery. »

Early Word on and Test Pics for Dinosaurs Unleashed

23 March 2010 12:28 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Even though there are still three weeks to go before Poison Apple Films wraps up production on Vampire Diaries Renfield (for which they've been providing regular updates to Dread Central), that hasn't stopped the company from looking ahead to its next projects, one of which is promisingly entitled Dinosaurs Unleashed.

Phil Nichols, who portrays Renfield in the aforementioned Vampire Diaries Renfield and also wrote the screenplay, will be handling directorial duties for Dinosaurs Unleashed. He sent over the following brief overview of what we can expect:

"It's a horror/sci-fi pic along the lines of Sssssss and the Carnosaur franchise and is about a mad scientist conducting DNA experiments in a small Texas town. We are using some of the recent soft tissue science discovered in dinosaur fossils to build our plot around.

Facades FX will be handling the gore, creatures, and dinosaurs; and casting is just beginning. We've shot some tests, »

More New Stills and an Update on Renfield

19 March 2010 5:03 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Phil Nichols, who portrays Renfield in the currently filming Vampire Diaries Renfield, dropped us a line with an update on the shoot and provided us with a batch of new photos to share with Dread Central readers.

Here's what Phil told us, "We're winding down Week 5 and are 3/4 through shooting the script. We are working to make the deadline to premiere the film at the Bram Stoker Film Festival in Whitby, England this October.

Last night we wrapped the 1895 flashbacks with Renfield. We're keeping Count Dracula's make-up a secret and won't release pics of his face until the movie premieres, but here's a look at the Brides of Dracula (Denise Williamson, Reem Al-Hellou, and Michelle James)."

Along with Nichols (who also wrote the screenplay) and the aforementioned Brides, the stars include Julin, John Stevens (as Dracula), Cory Hart, Shelley Boozer, Mel House, Paul Damon, Joe Grisaffi, Tyler Tackett, and Keli Wolfe. »
