Dracula Reborn in New Artwork and Trailer

We first told you about Halcyon International Pictures preparing a slate of low budget movies based on classic movie monsters under the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" banner in 2010, but over the years things have changed a bit! Read on for the latest details.

The main change is to the name of the banner itself. Gone is the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" moniker, and in its place we have the far less snazzy name of the "Still Night Monster Movie Series."

Either way, a trailer and some new artwork are here for their first release, Dracula Reborn, which is being billed as a modern retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic novel.

Back in May we reported on the announcement that Halcyon International Pictures was preparing a slate of low budget movies based on classic movie monsters under the "Famous Monsters of Filmland" banner. What better day than Halloween to bring you word of the trailer for the first in this new horror series: Dracula: Reborn?

Dracula: Reborn is a low budget retelling of Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale transplanted to modern day Los Angeles. Victoria Summer of The Zombie Diaries stars as Mina Harker. Corey Landis, one of the stars of Dinocroc vs. Supergator, co-stars as Johnathan Harker. In the role of Dracula himself is Stuart McKenna, an actor whose most high profile credit to this day would appear to be that of a Tom Cruise look-a-like in Meet the Spartans.

Though I have yet to find writer or director credits (the film doesn't even have an IMDb
