Bauhaus Founder Peter Murphy to Star in Horror Pic

Peter Murphy

Goth rock pioneer and Bauhaus founder Peter Murphy, is set to star in “BlackGloveKiller,” a psychological horror film to be directed by Canadian-based filmmaker Chris Alexander.

The duo is set to begin later this year filming a story that they described as “an erotic, violent fever dream driven by mood, music and atmosphere.” “BlackGloveKiller” tells the story of a beautiful predator named Miranda who hunts for prey at night.

Alexander, who also wrote the film, said it “really aims to be a horror film like no other horror film, one that nods to its influence but is still distinctly the product of my own imagination.” The director previously made the horror pics “Blood of Irina” and “Female Werewolf.”

Murphy, whose music has been heard in “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Butterfly Effect,” also appeared in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”

The film is also set to star Skinny Puppy vocalist Nivek Ogre. Cinematography will be provided by Canadian Gabriel Carrer.

      You neglected to mention that Peter Murphy and Bauhaus performed their legendary song “Bella Lugosi’s Dead” at the beginning of the David Bowie and Catherine Deneauve horror film, “The Hunger.”
