The director of 1981′s An American Werewolf In London is getting back into the shape-shifting genre as John Landis has come on board SpectreVision’s Bad Vibes pic as an executive producer, says Deadline.

Produced by Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller’s newly renamed company, the 1960s psychedelic rock music scene-based werewolf film is being directed by Gebroe. The Zombie Honeymoon helmer also wrote Bad Vibes’ original screenplay.

Indie musician Ariel Pink has also joined the film as composer.

Landis served as EP on the 2011 comedy horror pic Some Guy Who Kills People.

“Bad Vibes is set in the psychedelic rock scene of the late ‘60’s, where Sunrise Majesty is at the top of the charts with their message of ‘free love’ for all. But after an encounter with a strange groupie, bandleader and mastermind Max Cassidy is left with a gift that can’t be cured with a shot of penicillin. Max has been touched with the curse of the werewolf, transforming him into a dark and brooding nihilist whose new sound is almost as disturbing as his new plan: to hold a huge love-in at the band’s ranch where he and the group will infect all their fans, unless Cynthia, Max’s girlfriend and the last untouched member of the band, can stop them.
