Featuring Charles Band on stage!
The vampire Radu (Anders Hove) is back in director Ted Nicolaou's epic prequel SUBSPECIES V: BLOODRISE, a dark thriller that follows Radu’s descent from a noble warrior of the Church to a depraved, blood-hungry creature of the night!
Stolen by crusaders on the night of his birth from his demon mother and vampire father, Radu grows up with no knowledge of his monstrous bloodline. Trained and exploited by a brotherhood of mystic monks to slay all enemies of the church, fate brings him back one night to his father's castle, armed with the monster-slaying Sword of Laertes, to destroy the vampire Vladislas and reclaim a holy relic, the Bloodstone.
The horrifying events that unfold turn Radu from a honorable man into a vampire with no master, setting him on a centuries-long quest for sustenance, for companionship, for the treacherous one who stole him from the sun, and for the Bloodstone he hopes will bring him peace.
Filmed in Serbia in and around authentic castles and ruins and featuring original series star Denice Duff in a surprising role, this sensual, violent and operatic exploration of evil marks a stunning return for one of the screen's most beloved bloodsuckers.
