David Blyth, who first caused a scandal in his native New Zealand with the film ANGEL MINE in 1979 (the public outcry helped along, no doubt, by the fact that the film was the recipient of funding from the then-newly established New Zealand Interim Film Commission), followed by DEATH WARMED UP in 1984 (which was given a special jury award at the Festival International de Paris du film fantastique et de science fiction by  none other than Alejandro Jodorowsky) and most recently the trio of role-playing horror hybrids BOUND FOR PLEASURE, TRANSFIGURED NIGHTS and WOUND, is back in the director’s chair for a film that he figures is “less likely to be banned”: GHOST BRIDE.

The film is in pre-production, but New Zealand’s Channel 3 News just posted an on-set video HERE!
