Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 2, 2005
After cementing his reputation as an audacious independent filmmaker with The Double D-Avengera movie Variety hailed as “a cheerfully silly ode to larger-than-life femininity”director William Winckler began filming February 1 on his latest adventure: a loving homage to classic Universal-style horror films of the 1940s. The yet-to-be-titled “monster movie” stars Larry Butler (Lost in the USA, Elvis is Alive) and Gary Canavello, with special appearances by Butch Patrick (The Munsters), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Terror Firmer), Raven De La Croix (Russ Meyer’s Up!, Hear No Evil), David Gerrold (Star Trek), Playboy model Carla Harvey and Cyberspace Adult Video Review (CAVR) Starlet of the Year Selena Silver.
“Nobody has done an honest-to-goodness homage to classic black-and-white horror films and monster movies,” says Winckler, who also wrote the screenplay. “Those films are mocked or parodied in big-budget adventures like Van Helsing, but no modern producer has attempted to recapture the heart, soul and style of the classic monster films. We’re changing that: We’re going to give horror fans the type of serious monster picture that used to be explored at length in magazines like Famous Monsters of Filmland.”
Along with Frankenstein’s monster, fans can also expect to see a number of other classic-style creatures. Special-effects experts Rich Knight and Rufus Hearn, who have collectively worked on such productions as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spider-Man, Men in Black and Fear Runs Silent, are crafting all the costumes and makeup effects, with Mel Lewis (Barbarian, Asphalt Wars) signed to pen an original score. The motion picture, tentatively set for release later this year, is being produced by Winckler through William Winckler Productions.
