Planet of the Vampires... Prometheus Style!!!


Planet of the Vampires is a little known Italian gem of a film from director Mario Bava. Even though it may not be very popular among regular people today, the film holds a special place in the hearts of many filmmakers that watched it when they were younger and adopted styling from the film. One of these directors was Ridley Scott, who frequently has cited Planet of the Vampires as a style touchstone for his films Alien & Prometheus. So of course it was only a matter of time before some enterprising videographer  would mash up the two and give us a cool faux trailer. Freakstorm 2 has done just that, mashing up footage from Planet of the Vampires with the audio from the Prometheus trailer... very cool stuff. Check out the full video after the jump.

  1. Wow! That trailer really makes me want to see Planet of the Vampires. It can't be any less disappointing than Prometheus.
