“When the lights go down … The Moon will rise … And a Legend will be REBORN
On the eve of his high school graduation, unremarkable Will Kidman finally bonds with the girl he has long yearned for, reclusive Eliana Wynter. But he also discovers a dark secret from his past… that he is about to become a werewolf. Now, in an effort to fight destiny and save their love as well as their lives, they must battle not only Will’s growing blood lust but an army of fearsome beasts bent on killing them… and then, us all. ”
The legend of The Howling began more than 30 years ago, with the publication of Gary Brandner’s best-selling novel and the subsequent film adaptation written by Academy Award nominated John Sayles (Lone Star, Spiderwick Chronicles) and directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, InnerSpace), the success of which ushered in a new screen era of werewolves. Before there was “Team Jacob,” there was Karen White, and Nimziki’s reboot of The Howling saga is being described in industry circles as “Twilight with bite” with the deft mix of romance and action that audiences worldwide are craving.
