Paul Hyett’s ‘The Pool’ is ‘Cujo’ Meets ‘Jaws’

UK filmmaker Paul Hyett‘s werewolf movie, Howl, is making waves as one of the best in years (read our reviews).

Now, he’s barking up a similar tree.

Bloody Disgusting has landed some early sales art and info on The Pool, which is UK outfit Salt is handing sales on out of next week’s AFM in Santa Monica.

The film, which channels Stephen King’s Cujo, allegedly takes place during a pool party in a luxury cliff top house, which becomes a desperate fight for survival when the beloved family dog turns rabid.

The pic is being sold as Jaws meets Paranormal Activity, which makes no sense. It promises never-before-seen effects work, though.

After Hyett impressive werewolf movie, you’d have to think he would knock this one out of the park. Shit, Hyett has also worked on FX in films such as The Descent, Doomsday and Eden Lake, which are great films in terms of dread and tension, as well as gore. He came up with some of the best…

    HOWL was a bit of a disappointment. it’s ok but not as great as the movie was made out to be IMO.
