Get ready for a bloody good time, horror fans! The wait for Steven C. Miller‘s werewolf flick, initially titled Year 2 but seemingly renamed to Werewolves, is nearly over. After two years of mystery, the director has taken to social media with an exciting update and revealed a glimpse of the film’s “jacked” star, Frank Grillo.

Supermoon Unleashes Primal Terror:

The film’s premise is simple yet terrifying: a supermoon activates a latent werewolf gene, transforming anyone exposed to its light into a ravenous beast for one night. With millions dead and another supermoon imminent, the race is on for survival. Grillo takes center stage as a hardened character determined to protect his loved ones amidst the chaos. Joining him is the brilliant Dr. Amy Chen, played by Katrina Law (“NCIS”), forming a formidable duo against the werewolf onslaught.

A Purge of a Different Kind:

The setup undeniably resembles The Purge: Anarchy, which also starred Grillo, but with a supernatural twist. Imagine the escalating tension and desperate struggle for survival, amplified by the threat of monstrous transformations. Miller, known for his expertise in action and horror (Silent Night, Escape Plan 2), promises to deliver a thrilling experience that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Post-Production Howls:

Miller’s recent Twitter posts offer glimpses of the film’s final touches, including scenes featuring Grillo and a menacing werewolf. With post-production nearing completion, the anticipation for Werewolves has fans ready to howl at the moon.

Beyond Grillo and Law:

The supporting cast boasts impressive talent. Lou Diamond Phillips (“Longmire”) joins as the CDC head searching for a cure, while Ilfenesh Hadera portrays a woman fiercely protecting her daughter during a wolf attack. Johnathon Schaech (Blue Ridge) rounds out the ensemble as a grizzled veteran with a knack for dispatching wolves.

A Team for the Hunt:

Solution Entertainment backs the film, with Miller at the helm. His experience in action and horror genres bodes well for a blood-pumping ride. Producers Myles Nestel, Craig Chapman, and Sevier Crespo complete the team behind this highly anticipated project.

Get Ready for a Hair-Raising Experience:

With post-production nearing its end, expect a barrage of news and updates about Werewolves in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, horror fans, the hunt is about to begin!
