Glenn Danzig to Write and Direct "Ge Rouge"

Anything the controversial rocker Glenn Danzig does might be expected to have scary overtones, but this time he's making an honest-to-god horror film, or rather, a "voodoo zombie" picture. MTV reports that the introspective Danzig is writing and directing "Ge Rouge," which is set in early 20th century New Orleans. provides the following synopsis: "It's a period piece (early 1900s), so it's not just a horror movie. There's a lot going on in it. But there are some really gruesome scenes, too." Hmm, cause for celebration or just cause célèbre?

Time will tell, of course, but this really isn't completely out of left field for the highly theatrical performer. Back in 1990 and 1991, Glenn Danzig shared a directing credit on two distinctive collections of his own music videos. Both efforts were atmospheric in the extreme, if maybe a little gauche around the edges. He even did a little acting in the 1998 "Prophecy" sequel. Perhaps with "Ge Rouge" he's finally found a way to culminate his oddly miltonic view of the world.--Pete Mesling
