New film and a list

Everlost let me know about another new film, straight to DVD and looking a little cheap but vampiric none-the-less is Gothkill (which has a great cover). Synopsis as follows:

When Catholic Priest and Inquisitor Nicholas Dread finds out that innocents are being burned as witches he decides to do something about it. Unfortunately for him, his superiors don t agree and he s burned at the stake alongside two women he forced confessions from. While dying, Nick curses god and makes a pact with Satan to reign over his own kingdom someday at any cost. Now, in 21st century New York City, Dread has returned to finish the deal. His end of the bargain with Satan must be fulfilled, and many will die so Dread can take the throne in his kingdom of over one hundred thousand corrupt souls. He just has to find the right bunch of victims... and it just so happens the best Goth Club in the city is ripe for this bloodthirsty butcher bent on revenge! Can a group of Goths and wanna-be vampires hold their own when the real thing arrives?

Before I embed the trailer I also want to mention that Eerie Books have just posted a list of 100 horror flicks from the 70s. Each film listed links to a blog and one of the films links here. Thanks to Eerie Books and now I give you the Gothkill’s trailer:

Some of those trailer scenes remind me a lot of the "lair of the white worm" sequences - the nightmare ones during the bite. Does look like the film was made for about $100, but you never know, might be a good one.
