A new werewolf flick, 13Hrs, will be premiering August 28 at the UK’s most amazing horror film festival Film4 FrightFest.
“A full moon hangs in the night sky and lightning streaks across dark storm clouds. Sarah Tyler returns to her troubled family home in the isolated countryside, for a much put-off visit. As the storm rages on, Sarah, her family and friends shore up for the night, cut off from the outside world. But something comes out of the driving rain and darkness. Something that holds a dark secret so devastating that, in one night, it could wipe out the entire family.
Trapped, Sarah and her brothers and friends must use their heads as well as their physical strength to survive not only the thing that is hunting them down one by one – but their own entrapment as the besieged group turns in on itself. Can they survive the horror stalking them? Or is their enemy already amongst them and has it always been? Can they survive for 13 hours?’
That’s right boys and girls, a horror movie starring ferocious werewolves – none of that angsty romantic werewolf nonsense. Here’s hoping the movie is a big hit, if it is then there will be a better chance of it coming over to the States.
From the Press Release:
“This year there are eight British films in the main programme (another record) including MONSTERS, Gareth Edwards’ sensational post-Apocalyptic debut, The Ford Brothers’ Cannes-hyped African Zombie flick THE DEAD and Johannes Roberts F – in which a school gets a lesson in horror! Other home-grown titles are DEAD CERT (East-End gangsters meet Eastern European vampires), ISLE OF DOGS (nasty gangland horror), Paul Andrew Williams’ harrowing CHERRY TREE LANE and werewolf thriller 13HRS. Plus, Jake West will be presenting his in-depth documentary VIDEO NASTIES: MORAL PANIC, CENSORSHIP AND VIDEOTAPE, which will be followed by a Q & A panel discussion.”
Man, I wish I could go to Film4 FrightFest.
