Werewolf lovers, prepare for some wild-and-wooly fright when Lycan rips into to select theaters August 4, and arrives on disc, VOD and digital September 26. Directed by Bev Land, Lycan is a hairy horrorshow based on the Georgia folk legend of the Talbot county werewolf.
The film’s synopsis from the MVD Entertainment press release: “When six college kids in a sleepy Southern town are assigned a group history project, one of them sets in motion a horrific fate when he proposes they head into the Georgia backwoods to uncover the truth about the hundred year old urban legend of Emily Burt, the ‘Talbot County Werewolf’.”
Lycan stars Dania Ramirez (X-Men: The Last Stand), Vanessa Angel (Kingpin), the Emmy-nominated Gail O’Grady (NYPD Blue), Rebekah Graf (Entourage), and Craig Tate (12 Years a Slave).
Director Bev Land on making the film, and working with his wife, Dania Ramirez: “I knew that the journey of making this film independently would be a challenge filled with a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears (pun intended) and I know we have something special that genre fans are going to appreciate. Fortunately for me I was lucky enough to be able to take this journey with Dania, who I not only respect and adore as an artist, but someone I also love as a human being.”
