Whatever you do… stay off Bonehill Road at night.
Remember how cool werewolf movies used to be? Films like An American Werewolf in London and The Howling were loaded with some of the most badass creature effects in the genre’s history, but cool werewolf flicks of that sort have sadly fallen by the wayside in recent years. Computer generated wolves and transformation scenes, well, they’re just not nearly as awesome.
The last great one? Late Phases. Check it out if you haven’t yet.
Todd Sheets, a prolific shot-on-video filmmaker from back in the early days of VHS, is returning to the horror genre with upcoming werewolf film Bonehill Road, and he intends on channeling the glory days of werewolf films past. He promises that the throwback movie will feature loads of retro-style practical effects and absolutely ZERO CGI, and he’s even releasing it on VHS!
Bonehill Road was successfully funded through Indiegogo this year, and Sheets describes it as a dream project that will be a true, old school, American made werewolf movie.
In Sheets’ own words:
Bonehill Road is an homage to classic monster films like The Howling and An American Werewolf In London. In some ways, it is a throwback to the films we grew up with… the real horror movies that we all love so much, and in another way it is a modern horror flick that uses old school techniques, including Practical Monster Effects. NO CGI at all here. Our goal is to make an exciting, scary monster movie with some really cool werewolves.
Check out an early teaser below, along with an awesome werewolf concept.
