Full Moon Features is bringing us a new entry in its Subspecies series—the first since 1998’s Subspecies 4: Bloodstorm—and an official teaser trailer has arrived to whet our appetite!
Called Subspecies: Blooodrise, the latest instalment sees Anders Hove return as the vampire Radu Vladislas. Here’s the synopsis for the film, which was directed by Ted Nicolaou:
“Stolen by crusaders on the night of his birth, he has no knowledge of his bloodline: his mother is a demon; his father is a vampire. Trained and exploited by a brotherhood of mystic monks to slay all enemies of the church, fate brings him back one night to the castle of his father, armed with the monster-slaying Sword of Laertes, to destroy the vampire Vladislas and reclaim a holy relic: The Bloodstone.
“The events of that night turn Radu from a noble man into a vampire with no master, setting him on a centuries-long quest for sustenance, and companionship, for the treacherous one who stole him from the sun, and for the Bloodstone he hopes will bring him peace.”
Denice Duff, Kevin Spirtas, Staša Nikolić, Marko Filipović, Petar Arsić, Yulia Graut, Olivera Peruničić, and Jakov Marjanović star alongside Hove in the film. Charles Band serves as an executive producer..
Subspecies: Bloodrise is currently filming in Serbia and is expected to release in 2023. Check out the teaser trailer below!
