Legendary Misfit Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein to Star in 'Death Ward 13'
Here's something pretty cool. Legendary horror/punk guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein has joined the cast of director Todd Nunes re-imagination of Don't Look in the Basement titled Death Ward 13. That's a lot to digest, so lets back it up a bit. Friend of the site Todd Nunes wrote and directed one of our favorite Christmas themed horror films of the past decade or so, All Through the House. You can read our glowing review of the film HERE. His next project, Death Ward 13 dubbed a "bloody love letter" to the 1973 S.F. Brownrigg's classic Don't Look in the Basement is set to start filming later this year.
For his part, Doyle is the lead guitarist for legendary horror/punk The Misfits, sticking with them through both the Danzig and Graves eras. Since then he's drifted back and forth between touring with Glenn and creating new music both with his brother, fellow Misfit Jerry Only, and with his own band Doyle. Doyle dropped it's first disc, "Abominator" back in 2013 and is set to release their follow up, "As We Die" on May 5th of this year. He's currently on tour now, hitting places in the Northeast in the next couple of months including a show at the Loft in Poughkeepsie, New York that you might be able to find a certain article author at.
Check out the synopsis for Death Ward 13, along with some other interesting info we've lazily cribbed from the press release below including some words on Doyle from director Todd Nunes.
"I'm excited to work with Doyle,” says director Todd Nunes. “Doyle will be portraying a ruthless killer called The Duke - a psychopath and the most twisted and terrifying character in the movie. I’m a big fan of Doyle and his music and always thought he would make a menacing horror movie villain. With his threatening looks and massive build, this man will scare the crap out of everyone. Get ready for a horrifying ride!"
"It's 1973 and the Stephens Sanitarium for the Criminally Insane prepares to shut down permanently. Days before closing, four beautiful nursing students arrive to care for the last handful of “harmless" mental patients in a suspiciously understaffed ward. Confronted by their violent charges, the nurses soon realize that they are trapped inside the asylum with a deadly crew of vicious lunatics. Each patient has their own perverse identity, their own personal demons, and their own violent agenda. Pushed to the brink of insanity, the young nurses find themselves in a gruesome fight for survival inside Ward 13."
