Misfits guitarist Doyle to star in Don't Look in the Basement remake

I am big Misfits fan. Who isn't?

When people ask my favorite bands I run down the list and, because I'm clever, always name The Misfits twice. When they stop me I tell them, "Well, there is the Danzig Misfits and there is the Michale Graves Misfits. I love them both equally." Hell, I even liked Jerry Only's time as lead singer. At least, I like The Devil's Rain.

Anyhow, other Misfits fans will pleased to hear the news that guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein is set to star in DEATH WARD 13, a remake of the cult-classic DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT. The remake will mark Doyle’s first starring role in a film, and on top of that, he is in talks to provide music tracks for the soundtrack.

Doyle said this about the film:

”I’m looking forward to starting my movie career with a starring role in “Death Ward 13. It’s time to release the beast on the big screen. Let the killing begin!”

Director Todd Nunes of working with Doyle:

"I'm excited to work with Doyle. 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!"

DEATH WARD 13 synopsis: 

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.

DEATH WARD 13 is inspired by S.F. Brownrigg’s DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT and Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether".

The flick promises to deliver criminally insane patients: botched lobotomies, necrophilia, sexual deviance, and violent psychopaths. It will also feature more nurses, freaks, blood, and a brutal climax with an "updated, disturbing twist."

DEATH WARD 13 is now in pre-production, and is directed by Todd Nunes (ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE). The film will begin shooting in 2017.
