Two weeks ago, we shared the news that filming had begun on the long-awaited Full moon production Subspecies V: Blood increase. Now Full Moon founder Charles Band has revealed some footage from Subspecies V in a new YouTube video!

Yesterday Full Moon aired the first episode in what is intended to be a weekly video series called The Full Moon Universewhere Band will give fans updates on what his company is up to. Since Subspecies V is currently in production, it was discussed during the episode – and Band then revealed over a minute of footage. The section of The Full Moon Universe is embedded at the bottom of this article, and Subspecies V the recordings start at approximately 6 minutes.

Subspecies V: Blood increase has the following synopsis: Spanning 500 years in the life of the vampire Radu Vladisla, this long-awaited prequel to the SUBSPECIES series chronicles Radu’s descent from a noble warrior for the church to a depraved creature of the night. Stolen by crusaders the night after his birth, he does not know his bloodline: his mother a demon; father a vampire. Trained and harnessed by a brotherhood of mystical monks to kill all the enemies of the church, fate brings him back one night to his father’s castle, armed with the monster-slaying sword of Laertes, to destroy the vampire Vladislas and reclaim a sacred relic. : The Bloodstone. The events of that night transform Radu from a noble man into a vampire without a master, setting him on a centuries-long quest for sustenance, for companionship, for the traitor who stole him from the sun, and for the Bloodstone he hopes will bring him peace.

Subspecies franchise director Ted Nicolaou is at the helm, and the film sees Denice Duff returning as Michelle, Kevin Spirtas reprising his role as Mel, and Anders Hove once again playing the iconic vampire Radu.
