Joe Dante Has ‘Monster Love’ for Werewolves and Vampires

Gremlins director Joe Dante made his triumphant return to horror with The Hole 3D, a film that unfortunately many of you have yet to see. But when you do, you’ll be 10 times more excited for Monster Love, a teen horror comedy from writer Greg Pak.

A werewolf and a vampire fall in love, igniting a war between their respective communities. It’s ROMEO AND JULIET with fangs.

After PETE, a young dogwalker, gets dumped by his girlfriend, his slacker buddies convince him to run naked through the city park. As the moon rises, the boys laugh, howl, and transform…Later, a distraught young woman named MAGGIE is contemplating suicide when she’s surprised by an enormous wolf. She snarls, baring her vampire fangs. The wolf grins and barks: Let’s play!

After a fierce, exhilarating chase through the park, Maggie falls asleep with the wolf — and awakens in a naked young man’s arms. It’s Pete. And love at first sight.

Pete’s werewolf pals and Maggie’s upper-crust vampire clan are furious. And when some mangled bodies are discovered in the woods, Pete and Maggie must fight for their lives while grappling with the awful consequences of loving a monster.
