The vampire Radu (Anders Hove) is back in director Ted Nicolaou's epic prequel SUBSPECIES: BLOOD RISE, a dark thriller that follows Radu’s descent from a noble warrior of the Church to a depraved, blood-hungry creature of the night!

Stolen by crusaders on the night of his birth from his demon mother and vampire father, Radu grows up with no knowledge of his monstrous bloodline. Trained and exploited by a brotherhood of mystic monks to slay all 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 holy relic, the Bloodstone.

Filmed in Serbia in and around historic castles and ruins and featuring original series star Denice Duff in a surprising role, this sensual, violent and operatic exploration of evil marks a stunning return for one of the screen's most beloved bloodsuckers.

Exclusive Full Moon Features merch will be available for purchase before and after each showing, and a very special item will be raffled off to one lucky Full Moon fan at the showing on Monday, May 15th! (Similar raffles might be added to the other two showings as well; stay tuned!)
