Verotika (2019) – Awfully Good Horror Movies

by Natalie Kiser

It’s time for a new episode of our video series Awfully Good Horror Movies , and in this one we’re looking at a film that’s quite recent: musician Glenn Danzig’s 2019 feature directorial debut, Verotika (watch it HERE). A movie that viewers often seek out just so they can see if the movie is really as bad as everyone says it is… and the answer is yes. It really is that bad. To find out what we had to say about it, check out the video embedded above!

Written and directed by Danzig, who also composed the score, Verotika is based on characters that have appeared in comics published by Danzig’s own comic book company Verotik.

The film consists of three stories – The Albino Spider of Dajette, about a French sex worker who has eyes for nipples and is tormented by a monstrous spider; Change of Face, about a disfigured stripper who collects the faces of other women; and Drukija, Contessa of Blood, Danzig’s version of the Countess Bathory story.

Kayden Kross hosts the anthology as a character named Morella. Her co-stars include Caroline Williams, Cody Renee Cameron, Alice Tate, Ashley Wisdom, Natalia Borowsky, Rachel Alig, Scotch Hopkins, Kansas Bowling, Tonya Kay, and Sean Kanan.
