I am sure that most of you know that singer Glenn Danzig is not only an influential musical voice, but he is also a writer of horror themed comic books and a filmmaker. His film “Verotika” will be based on these comics and we snagged this news from his official website. It comes at an interesting time as he recently commented about the upcoming Original Misfits gig at Madison Square Garden (seen HERE). Take a look.
The Press Release:
Misfits and Danzig front man, Glenn Danzig, to write, direct and compose music for upcoming anthology film based on his own graphic novels. This week, legendary musician, Glenn Danzig of the Misfits and Danzig fame, has signed a feature film agreement with Cleopatra Entertainment, a division of the Los Angeles independent record label, Cleopatra Records. Danzig will pen, direct and compose music for the feature film which will be structured as an anthology splitting its running time between 3 individual characters/storylines based on Danzig’s own popular Verotik comic book characters.

Another superstar tour paraded young(er) guns: Mutoid Man and Corrosion of Conformity. There was not a dull moment as both bands did their job by exciting the crowd and maxing out the enthusiasm.
Danzig made it to the venue just in time for his set, which he killed. Starting on the right foot with “SkinCarver,” the audience was captivated from the first growl and continued to display their moshing zeal right into the classic, “Twist of Cain”. “How the Gods Kill,” “Dirty Black Summer,” and “Last Ride” were all highlights of the show.
