Death Rider in the House of Vampires is a 2021 American horror Western film about a sanctuary for undead bloodsuckers in the Wild West.

Written and directed by Glenn Danzig, who has clearly been unfazed by the almost universal derision engendered by his previous film, Verotika.

The movie stars starring Devon Sawa (Hunter Hunter; Final Destination; Idle Hands) as the titular ‘Death Rider’ alongside Julian Sands (Romasanta: The Werewolf Hunt; Boxing HelenaGothic), Kim Director (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2), Ashley Wisdom and Danzig himself as ‘Bad Bathory’.

Danny Trejo and filmmaker Eli Roth have cameo roles. Produced by James Cullen Bressack (director of Blood CraftPernicious; Blood Lake; To Jennifer; et al).


“You might be tempted to call Death Rider in the House of Vampires a “bad movie”, but this is one of those films that is beyond good or bad.  This is art.  Like Ed Wood before him, Glenn Danzig is blissfully unaware of his shortcomings as a director, and yet, he plunges fervently forward, putting his unique vision on the screen in bold, brazen fashion.” The Video Vacuum

” …when Danzig has an interesting idea he drags the scene out well past the point where it stops being effective. Or, as with the shootout, ruins it with terrible effects. The film’s few effective moments can’t come close to saving the film […] Slightly better than Verotika but still miles from being good, or even so bad it’s good…” Voices from the Balcony
