Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein To Star In Death Ward 13


If there are two things in this world that go together better than horror and punk and/or heavy metal, we’ve yet to hear of them. So it makes sense, the idea of legendary Misfits guitarist, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, starring in Death Ward 13, a remake of the cult-classic film, Don’t Look in the Basement. As the star, Doyle plays the film’s most terrifying character, which also makes sense.

Now in pre-production, Death Ward 13 is directed by award-winning horror filmmaker, Todd Nunes (All Through the House) and produced by The Readmond Company. Doyle commented on the upcoming role:

I’m looking forward to starting my movie career with a starring role in Death Ward 13. It’s time to release the beast on the big screen. Let the killing begin!

Doyle is currently on a U.S. tour in support of his forthcoming album, As We Die, which will be released on May 5, 2017, via Monsterman Records/EMP Label Group. Death Ward 13 will be Doyle’s first starring role in a film, and he is currently in talks with the film’s producers and Monsterman co-founder Bruce Miyaki to provide music tracks for the soundtrack.


Death Ward 13 is inspired by S.F. Brownrigg’s Don’t Look in the Basement (1973) and Edgar Allen Poe’s short story, “The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” (1845). Death Ward 13 promises to deliver a thrilling grindhouse-inspired remake with a shocking collection of criminally insane patients: botched lobotomies, necrophilia, sexual deviance, and violent psychopaths.

On working with Doyle in the future, director Todd Nunes said:

I’m excited to work with Doyle. Doyle will be portraying a ruthless killer called The Duke — a psychopath and the most twisted and terrifying character in the movie. I’m a big fan of Doyle and his music and always thought he would make a menacing horror movie villain. With his threatening looks and massive build, this man will scare the crap out of everyone. Get ready for a horrifying ride!

Death Ward 13 is Todd Nunes’ bloody love letter to Don’t Look in the Basement. This reimagined version will give fans a taste of the original film with added practical effects and bloody gore for modern horror fanatics. Death Ward 13 will also feature more nurses, freaks, and blood, as well as a brutal climax with an updated, disturbing twist.

Death Ward 13 Synopsis:

It’s 1973, and the Stephens Sanitarium for the Criminally Insane prepares to shut down permanently. Days before closing, four beautiful nursing students arrive to care for the last handful of “harmless” mental patients in a suspiciously understaffed ward. Confronted by their violent charges, the nurses soon realize that they are trapped inside the asylum with a deadly crew of vicious lunatics. Each patient has their own perverse identity, their own personal demons, and their own violent agenda. Pushed to the brink of insanity, the young nurses find themselves in a gruesome fight for survival inside Ward 13.

Death Ward 13 will begin shooting in 2017, with Todd Nunes partnering again with producers Stephen Readmond and Christopher Stanley. The team’s Santa slasher, All Through the House (2016) received 23 awards and nominations, including the following wins: Best Slasher (RIP Horror Film Festival); Best Actress, Jessica Cameron as Sheila (Hardcore Horror Fest); Best Killer/Slasher (“Golden Skulls” Award, The Horrific Network); and Best Director (Hardcore Horror Fest).
