Katt Shea Remaking Vampire Flick Dance of the Damned


Corman to executive produce

Katt Shea announced the she will be directing a remake of Dance of the Damned, a film that she made nearly 25 years ago.

Shea’s other credits include Poision Ivy, Stripped to Kill and The Rage: Carrie II.

She decided to tackle a remake of her own film, because the concept behind Dance of the Damned “has the potential to resonate with a new generation of movie goers” as it is about the human condition.

In the original Dance of the Damned, a vampire follows his instincts to a strip joint where he focuses in on one of the performers. He picks her for his meal because she is contemplating suicide, but he wants to share her life before taking it, and during the course of the evening they discuss their differences, their fears, and their lifestyles. As the moment of truth approaches, the woman becomes less sure that she wants to die.

Pre-production is underway with legendary director-producer Roger Corman serving as executive producer.
