While it’s been a hell of a long time since I’ve seen the films, I used to have a real soft spot for Full Moon’s cheapie vampire franchise Subspecies. The final film in the series seemed to be Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm in 1998 – but it seems that this will now change. On the Full Moon Features website, the company noted that more information about their Deadly Ten initiative [a banner under which ten new Full Moon movies will be made] is coming soon, while also teasing the forthcoming return of Radu – and attached to the statement was the above poster for Subspecies 5, starring Anders Hove!
“This week, we’re going to reveal everything you need to know about the DEADLY TEN in a news release that will be going wide. But until then, we’ll give you a little hint. One word: SUBSPECIES.
We know that many of you Full Moon freaks are crazy about our 4-movie strong SUBSPECIES series, the franchise of high-concept fright films that follow the evil legacy of the rat-fanged vampire Radu and his reign of undead terror. It’s been over 20 years since we released SUBSPECIES 4: BLOODSTORM and admirers of the movies have been clamoring for more ever since.
And while we CAN’T tell you everything just yet, if you ARE a SUBSPECIES fan, well…let’s just say that you should be REALLY excited about the DEADLY TEN.
It’s about damn time we saw our old pal Radu again…don’t you think?
Yes. So do we.”
I agree too.
