Glenn Danzig shared the trailer for his new horror film, Death Rider in the House of Vampires, earlier this year, and now he's spoken to Rolling Stone about the film, as well as Misfits' reunion shows, the cancelled Danzig Sings Elvis shows, and more. There's no official release date yet for Death Rider, but Danzig says, "We’ve already got a plan to go to theaters with it around the country."
Danzig wrote, directed, executive produced, and scored the film, and he appears in it in a supporting role as "Bad Bathory." Asked by Rolling Stone if he wrote the character for himself, Danzig says, "I started writing the script, and I had all these characters. And then eventually I was like, 'You know what? I could do this, and we won’t have to look for somebody and we get out of it cheap.' So I didn’t originally intend for me to be that character, but then I just started thinking about him, like, 'I’ll just do this one. It’s not a big part. It’d be easy. I could still do the directing.' With directing, at least for me, you’re involved in everything. People come to you with wardrobe, sets, casting; preproduction is insane. The director’s got the hardest job. I just want to make sure I’m, like, a real director and not like one of these Hollywood directors where somebody else will start the movie and then they take credit [laughs]."
