Finally the wolves have come back to horror! In the past few years there has been a resurgence of werewolf films and we are all better for it. One to look for next month is the feature from Adrian Garcia Bogliano, LATE PHASES. Adrian killed it with last years sleeper hit HERE COMES THE DEVIL and now he returns with a dynamic creature flick in the vein of SALEMS LOT and other close knit community films. STAKE LAND’s Nick Damici plays the lead and Dark Sky will release the feature on November 21st at the IFC Center in New York. Enjoy the hi res poster courtesy of Dark Sky Films.
Following the release of his Here Comes The Devil, as well as his scene-stealing segment “B is For Bigfoot” in the horror anthology The ABCs of Death, Adriån Garcîa Bogliano cements his status as one of the top horror filmmakers coming out of Spain with LATE PHASES. In a bookend of sorts to his performance in the cult hit Stake Land, Nick Damici commands the screen here, coming on the heels of last year’s Sundance vigilante thriller Cold In July and the critically acclaimed cannibal drama, We Are What We Are.
Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…
LATE PHASES is directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano and stars Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Lance Guest, Erin Cummings, Rutanya Alda, Tina Louise, Caitlin O’Heaney, Karen Lynn Gorney, Dana Ashbrook, and Tom Noonan. It is being released courtesy of Dark Sky Films.
