Director Todd Sheets is making his return to independent horror in a big way, with the werewolf film Bonehill Road. Today, Sheets announced that Scream Queen Linnea Quigley has joined the cast. Quigley has appeared in over 140 films including The Barn, Night of the Demons, Horrorvision, Phantoms, Pumpkinhead II, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4, and Silent Night, Deadly Night. But most genre fans remember her best as “Trash” (the stripping red head) from The Return of the Living Dead.
I am simply overwhelmed that Linneas has decided to join us on Bonehill Road. I have known her for many years and we have always hoped to do a film together. It looks like that is finally going to happen.” Sheets told us. “My mentor is David Decoteau. He gave me my start, and believed in a crazy kid in Missouri when no one else would give me the chance. He also worked with Linnea several times early in her career and helped define her, along with Michelle Baurer and Brink Stevens, as the original Scream Queens. That is how I first met Linnea, through our mutual love and respect for David. I am hoping he is watching all of this with a huge smile on his face. It’s a dream come true and a true honor. It takes our film to the next level. I promise that fans of Linnea’s work will be surprised by her role in this. It’s something very different for her and it will showcase her talent as an actress.”
In the film, a mother and daughter escaping an abusive relationship run into something even more sinister on Bonehill Road.
Bonehill Road will pay homage to classic werewolf films like The Howling and An American Werewolf in London. It will have an 80’s feel and don’t worry, this film will not be one of those PG-13 flicks. It is a horror film for real horror fans and bring back those blood-thirsty beasts we love and miss.
Be honest, when was the last time you watched a good practical effects werewolf film? Don’t you want to see one? You still have a chance to get involved with this film. The Indiegogo campaign is currently running and new killer perks have just been added. Check them out.
