If you ever imagined what it would be like to cross Sergio Leone with Bram Stoker, the results could very well be August 2021’s Death Rider in the House of Vampires, which seemingly transports a variation of Clint Eastwood’s Man with No Name into the lair of the undead in the Old West. Glenn Danzig, of the band The Misfits, stars as Bad Bathory and also serves as writer/director of what is expected to be a gorefest.
“It’s an homage to the classic vampire movies and, of course, classic Italian spaghetti westerns,” he tells Rolling Stone. “I just mixed the two genres. I didn’t think anyone would have done it before. Basically, the character Death Rider travels to the vampire sanctuary out in the middle of the desert, and then it all goes crazy after that. He knows that the price of admission is a virgin, so he brings a girl on a horse.”
