Peter Murphy’s Blackglovekiller: 10 Things To Know

Written by:

Former Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy revealed last week that he’s set to star in Blackglovekiller, the new horror movie directed by Fangoria Editor Chris Alexander.

Details will start streaming in over these next few months, but for now, here’s what we know:

  1. The 58-year old Murphy will not only be starring in the movie, he’s also co-producing it as well.
  2. The film will also star Skinny Puppy’s Nivek Ogre.
  3. Murphy and Ogre’s roles are under wraps for now, but the storyline is based around Miranda, a female killer who does all of her work at night. By day she sits in a cage and anxiously waits for the sun to set. Why does she do all of her work by night? We’re thinking she’s a vampire, that’s why. After all, the movie poster reads: “She lives by night.”
  4. Okay, but why the cage? We have no idea…
  5. Dubbed a psychological horror film, that has accents of fevered, hallucinogenic cinematography, Blackglovekiller also promises to be a dark and probing look at the human condition.
  6. Speaking of cinematography, the Toronto-based Alexander will be aided in that category by fellow Canuck Gabriel Carrer.
  7. Alexander says the film is inspired by the work of Jess Franco, Jean Rollin, Nicolas Winding Refn and Lars Von Trier
  8. Blackglovekiller will be shot in Toronto. Rumors had started to circulate that some scenes would be shot in Turkey, where Murphy lives with his wife, but those have proven to be false.
  9. The film is currently in pre-production and should be out in theaters in 2016.
  10. As far as music goes, Murphy just released a companion album to last year’s Lion called Remixes From Lion. Murphy is contributing the track “Keep Coming Back” for ailing SF-based deejay Cheb i Sabbah’s upcoming tribute album.
