Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein is set to star in Death Ward 13, a remake of the cult-classic film Don’t Look in the Basement. With his iconic Devilock hair and impressive physical build, Doyle is best known as the guitar player for the American horror punk band the Misfits and will play the most terrifying character in the film. 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.

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

Though the band already has released two EPs, Murder (2012) and Conjured (2013), the quest for world domination will go to a new level June 30, when Victory Records releases its full-length debut, Blind Until We Burn, and later this summer, when it performs on its label’s stage at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. When the Kissing Candice’s tour supporting Twiztid came to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Maryland, Live Metal’s Greg Maki sat down backstage with vocalist Joey Simpson, guitarist/vocalist Tommy Sciro, bassist Mike Grippo and guitarist Walter Dicristina, who devoured a literal stack of pizzas during the interview, to discuss the band’s origins, the new album, Mayhem and more.
