Autonomy Pictures is moving forward with the next Chris Alexander directing vehicle, Queen of Blood. The film is a follow-up to the DVD/Blu-ray release Blood for Irina.
The new film will further deconstruct the vampire myth created in “Irina” and is currently in pre-production and will be released in Spring 2014.
“With my first film, which was an education in filmmaking, I created an unconventional, mood piece tackling themes such as death, birth, redemption, addiction and loneliness,” says Alexander. “With Queen of Blood, I will continue to expand on those themes and fuse them into a Horror/Western hybrid which will make it a darker, stranger and visceral film experience. I’m excited that I’m working with Autonomy Pictures again as they give me complete creative freedom to bring my vision to life.”
Queen of Blood follows the rebirth of Irina (once more portrayed by Shauna Henry), who rises from the center of the Earth, ready to bring a wave of death and madness to the battered wastelands of the Wild West. A parasite who roams the alternately breathtaking and dangerous rural landscape, Irina leaves of path of bloody destruction and victims as she aims her sights on a young widow whose unborn child may hold the secret to Irina’s longevity.
The film will also star horror art/music pioneer and Skinny Puppy frontman Nivek Ogre with additional cast members announced soon.
