FULL MOON OPENS NEW WEBSITE
Charles Band?s Full Moon Pictures has seemed fairly inactive for the last year or so, but that seems about to change. The company has just opened a new website which reports that a series of new films are being planned. No story details yet, but the site says that these features will be shot on bigger budgets and on 35mm, with Band, Stuart Gordon and Ted (SUBSPECIES) Nicolaou among the directors. The site also offers numerous past Full Moon flicks for sale on DVD, as well as a number of toys and the company?s two newest features: PUPPETMASTER: THE LEGACY and DR. MOREAU?S HOUSE OF PAIN. The latter, helmed by Band from a script by ?Earl Kenton? (get it?), is billed as a sequel to H.G. Wells? original novel, in which a young man tracks his brother, who was suffering from a rare blood disease, to the mansion of the titular mad scientist. The brother became one of the doc?s half-human, half-animal experiments, and our hero becomes one as well, ultimately leading the other ?manimals? to revolt. You can check out trailers for MOREAU and LEGACY at the new site.
