Arrow In The Head recently got their claws on the trailer for William Brent Bell’s (THE DEVIL INSIDE) upcoming werewolf film WER, and now, boils ‘n ghouls, we’ve got it up here on Backwoods Horror. While I wasn’t really the biggest fan of The Devil Inside, my favorite movie monster (as you all probably know by now) is the werewolf, so any news on a new werewolf film and I can’t help but be drawn to it…even if the trailer screams “stay away” with its overabundance of CGI and the werewolf itself looking more like a hairy hobo than the bi-pedal wolf from hell I hold near and dear to my heart.
Following the brutal slaying of an American family vacationing in rural France, a peculiar man living near the crime scene is blindly charged with their murders. Believing her client is innocent, expatriate American defense attorney Kate Moore and her team decide to take a scientific approach in order to prove his physical incapability to local authorities. As she delves into his enigmatic family history, she uncovers evidence that suggests the rebirth of an unexpected legend. When a bloodbath ensues, Kate must do whatever she can to survive the surrounding terror and prevent the chaos from spreading. A.J. Cook, Simon Quarterman and Brian J. O’Connor star.
As we’ve stated time and again, we here at Backwoods Horror are HUGE fans of Squatchsploitation flicks. From seeing 1980?s NIGHT OF THE DEMON and LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK as a child, onto newer fare such as THE LOST COAST TAPES and the much anticipated EXISTS, we just can’t get enough of the big guy.
Now Bobcat Goldthwait (who happens to be a contemporary of bigfoot expert Scott Herriott) has written and directed a new found footage bigfoot horror film called WILLOW CREEK (which I’m assuming is a horror film by the trailer and the amazing poster), and now a new trailer has surfaced. Check it out after the break!

Bobcat Goldthwait (who happens to be a contemporary of bigfoot expert Scott Herriott) has written and directed a new found footage bigfoot horror film (I’m assuming it’s within the horror genre by the amazing poster below), and a new poster and interview with Goldthwait have surfaced. Just LOOK at that poster. It’s a shame that movie posters aren’t such an art form any more as they once were. I’d be proud to have this one hanging on my office wall. But enough with the gab, on with the interview with the man himself and a full look at the poster!
The first official trailer for the Vicious Brothers’s GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2has hit the web! John Poloquin will be directing from a script penned by the original’s helmers, the Vicious Brothers. GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2 will be available nationwide on VOD October 2nd with a theatrical release and midnight screenings beginning on October 12th.
In 2011 GRAVE ENCOUNTERS was a found-footage horror phenomenon from the Vicious Brothers, with a trailer garnering over 20 million views on YouTube. Many people believed it was just a movie. They were wrong, and film student Alex Wright is out to prove it in GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2.
While researching the events depicted in the original film and the subsequent disappearance of its lead ”actor” Sean Rogerson, Alex Wright received a bizarre video from a mysterious blogger named “DeathAwaits666.” Appearing to show Rogerson still alive but trapped inside the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital from GRAVE ENCOUNTERS, Alex and his friends agree to meet the blogger at the infamous hospital in hopes of learning what really happened. To their horror they quickly find themselves face-to-face with unspeakable evil. Realizing that they must be smarter and faster than Rogerson and his crew to avoid suffering the same fate, they use their knowledge of the original film to do whatever it takes to survive.

Left in ruin and shrouded by the mystery of a dark spirit that wills young couples to suicide, the place has been avoided for years, marked only by a twisted, ancient tree with an ominous hollow said to be the home of great evil. When four friends on holiday explore the local folklore, they realize that belief in a myth can quickly materialize into reality, bringing horror to life for the town.
