REGINALD THE VAMPIRE With Jacob Batalon Premieres Tonight on Syfy. Filmed in Victoria BC.
Spiderman’s Jacob Batalon stars in and executive produced the new horror comedy series Reginald the Vampire which premieres tonight on Syfy and was filmed in Victoria, BC, last Fall and Winter.
Reginald is a put-upon employee at the local Slushy Shack before becoming a vampire.
It’s a very zany and quirky — but lovable! — show. It’s sort of like watching a human being go through all the human things, like trying to establish relationships and finding a friend and finding your place in the universe . . .but all in the backdrop of becoming a vampire. – Jacob Batalon to Jimmy Fallon.
Adapted fromJohnny B. Truant’s comic book series, Reginald the Vampire tells the story of Reginald Baskin (Jacob Batalon) who finds himself an unwelcome member of a world of fit, beautiful, self-obsessed vampires. He’ll have to deal with a bully manager at work, a girl he loves but can’t be with and a vampire chieftain who wants him dead.
Reginald the Vampire filmed in Victoria, B.C. last Fall and Winter when “the cast & crew had to deal with a LOT of rain while filming”.

Watched the filming of Reginald The Vampire and even got a picture with @lifeisaloha and his doppelgänger for the movie. The exterior of the building the crew added to the building that was already there. They did an awesome job at making it look the way it does pic.twitter.com/gPYqtiEmhS— robin / spinach (@introvefangirl) February 9, 2022
