TRAILER HITS FOR DEVIL INSIDE DIRECTOR’S NEW WEREWOLF FILM: WER

WER Banner

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.

Synopsis:

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.

OCTOBER HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!

It’s that time of year again boils ‘n ghouls.  That time of year when the air becomes cool and crisp.  When dusk brings a brilliant orange hue and long, mysterious shadows.  That time of year when the smell of woodsmoke drifts upon the brisk night wind.  When the leaves carpet the ground with brilliant shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown.  It is that time of year when a Jack ‘o Lantern, so carefully carved, sits glowing upon the steps of homes everywhere.  When children stalk the night to trick or treat.  It is a time of monsters, of werewolves, vampires, witches and ghosts.  It is time…for Halloween!

If you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance that, like me, you’ve waited all year for this as the entire month of October is Halloween for me (hell, I could say it’s Halloween all year round here at BackwoodsHorror). And the day itself?  I’m not yet certain what I’ll be doing, but I’m for DAMN sure it’s going to be memorable (IF I can remember it…heh…).  So dust off your costumes, or make or buy new ones, because it’s time to get out there and celebrate the time of year when Horror in every form imaginable is brought to the forefront of every heart and mind.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
