New Poster Drops for Howl
This genre is in serious need of some modern day, kick ass werewolf films (LATE PHASES failed big time), and Paul Hyett’s upcoming film HOWL sounds like it might fit the bill. HOWL is directed by Hyatt, is written by Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, and stars Ed Speleers, Shauna Macdonald, Sean Pertwee, Holly Weston, Elliot Cowan, and Duncan Preston. Check out the rather lengthy plot synopsis:
Joe, a young ticket collector, is riding the last train out of London on a dark and stormy night along with a meager bunch of passengers. When the train brakes violently and comes to a sudden halt deep in the middle of a forest, it seems they have hit something on the line. But when the driver ventures out to investigate, he never returns, leaving the passengers in a state of panic – particularly when Joe sees the driver’s mutilated body outside the carriage.
Realizing there’s something dangerous lurking in the forest, Joe tells the passengers to make barricades to secure themselves in the carriage, but soon the deadly creature is stalking the besieged train and smashing through their defenses, picking them off one-by-one. Joe rallies his “pack” of passengers to fight back. During a vicious battle they manage to kill the creature, revealing it to be a hideous mutated fusion of human and wild animal – a werewolf. However, celebrations are cut short when they hear more howls coming from the forest…
Still no word on a release date, but stay tuned and I’ll let you know as soon as I hear. For now you can dig on the new poster below.
