Glenn Danzig has release three production stills from his debut feature film titled Verotika via Facebook. Currently in post-production, he promises the film is going to be a hard R-rated visual feast.
The photos that were released feature three scenes; a woman viewed from the back gazing eerily into a mirror in a candlelit room, a horrifyingly grotesque monster pulling back on the face of what appears to be a shocked captive and finally a woman wearing a spiked-crown in a mesh headdress with an angry expression as she is wielding a knife in one hand and holding the hair of a dead-eyed victim in the other.
Last year in an interview with Revolver, Danzig said of the project, “I’m finally getting to direct my own movie and no one’s going to tell me how to do it. It’s one of the reasons I’m doing it with [CEO] Brian Perera and Cleopatra Records. He’s like, ‘I want you to have your vision.’ Who’s going to tell you that? I’ve had so many meetings with places that are just going to step all over my movie and then people are going to judge me and it’s not even my movie. So I’m pretty happy.”
Being made between projects with his eponymous band and Misfits reunion shows, Verotika will be based on the output of Danzig’s long-running adult-themed comic book publishing company called Verotik, which was founded in ’94. A combination of the words “violence” and “erotic,” the company grew out of his lifelong love of comic books and dark arts.
