A new horror-comedy about a world not filled with vampires
Michael Stephenson, the child star of Troll 2 who showed his filmmaking talents with 2009’s Best Worst Movie, has his sights set on directing his first narrative. Stephenson will tackle Destroy for Magic Stone Productions.
In Destroy , vampires don’t exist, but that doesn’t stop well-intentioned would-be vampire hunter Steve Howard from leaving a trail of blood-splattered wooden stakes across Bavaria. While he thinks he’s saving the world, he and new assistant Elise are mistakenly murdering sweet, innocent old men.
Destroy‘s tone lands it somewhere between ’80s genre classics like An American Werewolf in London and contemporary comedies like Shaun of the Dead. The script is penned by Alamo Drafthouse lead programmer Zack Carlson and Bryan Connolly. The pair recently co-authored the internationally successful 2010 book “Destroy All Movies: The Complete Guide to Punks on Film.”
