Lions Gate Unloads Some Hidden Treasures

Lions Gate Films has been hiding a few great titles from us that I think you’re all dying to see- and now they finally plan on releasing them! The first is Christopher Smith’s creepy subway flick Creep (review). Trapped in a London subway station, a woman who’s being pursued by a potential attacker heads into the unknown labyrinth of tunnels beneath the city’s streets. Second was a Filmax film entitled ‘Romasanta’, which has been retitled for video release as Werewolf Hunter: The Legend of Romasanta. Inside you’ll find the official release date and more…

Fangoria reports:

“The Spanish Julian Sands-starring lycanthro-opus ROMASANTA, now called WEREWOLF HUNTER: THE LEGEND OF ROMASANTA, will arrive November 22, and CREEP, the British chiller about a woman (Franka Potente) stalked through the London underground by a semihuman monster, hits December 13. The latter will first play conventions and festivals to build buzz, but details on these have not been confirmed yet, nor have the DVD contents for either title.”

In WEREWOLF HUNTER: THE LEGEND OF ROMASANTA, “An uproar is caused when some mutilated cadavers are discovered, giving way to the legend of the “Werewolf of Allariz”. A traveling vendor rolls through the forest in his old wagon. A woman from every village on his route faithfully awaits him. He’s attractive, intelligent, charming…. But he’s also the monster feared by all. His most recent prey, Barbara will soon become the one who hunts him down. The film is based on the true-life story of Manuel Blanco Romasanta, the traveling vendor, who confessed to the murders of thirteen people, using their body fat to make soap. Romasanta was tried in Allaríz in 1852 and avoided capital punishment by proclaiming he was a werewolf. Barbara was the lone survivor of four sisters.”
