With writer and director Evan Tramel’s horror feature The Black Water Vampire releasing today on DVD/VOD via Image Entertainment, we caught up with the flick’s producer Jesse Baget to discuss the project, and received an exclusive new poster with the producer's art and four never-before-seen stills in the process.
Starring Danielle Lozeau (Legion), Andrea Monier (The Lady Killers), Anthony Fanelli, Robin Steffen and Bill Oberst Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies), with special effects by Damien Leone and original music by Richard Figone, The Black Water Vampire follows the exploits of a documentary film crew who investigate a series of brutal killings known as the Black Water murders. As they delve deeper into the story, they stumble upon a horrifying secret... a secret they may not survive.
Baget told us of the evolution on the project which was filmed in Big Bear, California over the course of fifteen days. “I was surprised that there hadn't been a ‘found footage’ vampire film done," he said, "and after seeing so many films with talking vampires, I really wanted to make one with a monster vampire that didn't have time for words.”
As for what attracted him to the material: “I was interested in developing a film that seemed headed in a certain direction; in this case the investigation of a serial killer case, and then, just as the audience started to get comfortable, turn the plot on its head and introduce an element of sci-fi.”
