Tom Savini’s Death Island, I Drink Your Blood, Love Is A Bullet, Shellter

• Fangoria is reporting that Tom Savini will be returning behind the camera to direct the zombie indie flick Death Island for Enigma Films.

Rick Danford co-wrote the script with Savini himself, which finds a group of filmmakers traveling for a shoot in a small island of Haiti, unbeknownst to them, the “Il Du Mort” (Death Island) which still harbors the undead.

The film is currently in pre-production with financing being finalized shortly. You can read more quotes on Death Island with Enigma Films Rick Danford on Fangoria’s site here. Visit the Enimga Films site at: http://www.enigma-films.com.

• Remember ’70s Grindhouse classic I Drink Your Blood? Grindhouse Releasing put out a stellar version of the flick on DVD a few years back and it garnered up enough interest into making a potential remake. Original writer/director David Durston (now in his 80’s!) recently spoke to Fangoria and told them that he recently penned his own remake of I Drink Your Blood.

The article states that Durston wouldn’t direct the new update, but will work in a producing capacity and has already met with B-movie actress Sybil Danning about being involved. You can read more quotes from Durston on how he changed his story for a more contemporary setting at Fango’s post here.

• Below you can find 3 images from Love Is A Bullet, a new short film written by UK author Garry Charles and directed by Adrian Chappell. The movie intends to give us a glimpse into the zombie apocalypse from a more personal point of view.

Director Chappell says, “The visuals on this one are quite harsh, a stark contrast to the dialogue. It’s not for those with a weak stomach, but at the same time it has a heart and soul.”

Love is a Bullet will premiere as part of the Jacksonville Zombie Walk (Website: http://www.jaxzombiewalk.com) on Oct 11, 2009. Charles also scripted Straw Man (directed by Andrew Barker) and produced the upcoming UK gangster film with fangs, Dead Cert. Visit his official site at: http://www.garrycharles.co.uk
