The brand new trailer and poster for director Josh Ruben’s upcoming horror comedy Werewolves Inside tease the phobia and light-hearted antics to come back in IFC Movies’ adaptation of the online game of the identical title. Led by Veep and The Tomorrow Warfare star Sam Richardson as Finn, Werewolves Inside finds a mysterious killer terrorizing the snowed-in residents of a small city, and it falls to the brand new forest ranger to search out out who – or what – lurks amongst them on this hilarious horror whodunnit. No prizes for guessing what “it” is.
Starring an all-star ensemble forged together with Milana Vayntrub (This Is Us), Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story), Michaela Watkins (Wanderlust), Harvey Guillen (What We Do In The Shadows), Michael Chernus (Orange Is The New Black), George Basil (Crashing), Sarah Burns (Barry), Catherine Curtain (Stranger Issues), Rebecca Henderson (Russian Doll), and Glenn Fleshler (Joker) alongside Sam Richardson, Werewolves Inside is directed by Josh Ruben from a screenplay by Mishna Wolff.
“I grew up near the same small town where we shot Werewolves Within,” director Josh Ruben stated in an announcement, providing some perception into the inspiration behind the film. “As a kid, I’d freak myself out, making up monster stories, running through the woods, pretending I was Chief Brody, fighting creatures in the brush (I LOVED Jaws – hell, I loved horror). That hometown experience, where neighbors knew your business (whether you liked it or not) is so much of what makes Werewolves so personal. But, as much as I love horror movies, nothing scares me more than people. And as much as this movie is an homage to my love for Hot Fuzz, the Coen Brothers, and Arachnophobia, it’s also about the monster in all of us.”
Based mostly on the multiplayer VR sport of the identical title, which was developed by Pink Storm Leisure and revealed by Ubisoft again in 2016, begins after a proposed pipeline creates divisions throughout the small city of Beaverfield, and a snowstorm traps its residents collectively contained in the native inn. Newly arrived forest ranger FINN (Sam Richardson) and postal employee CECILY (Milana Vayntrub) should attempt to preserve the peace and uncover the reality behind a mysterious creature that has begun terrorizing the neighborhood.
Very like many online game variations earlier than it, the film adaptation of Werewolves Inside is one thing of a departure from its supply materials, with Pink Storm Leisure’s online game going down in a medieval-fantasy city that’s being attacked by a werewolf, with gamers tasked to guess which of the townsfolk is the werewolf in disguise in a Mafia-style format. Little doubt the film will characteristic a wide range of twists and turns that hark again to the online game inspiration, and thus discover Ruben’s cryptic theme of “the monster in all of us.”
Werewolves Inside may have its world premiere on the Tribeca Movie Pageant in June 2021. The film is then scheduled to be launched in a restricted launch on June 25, 2021, adopted by video on demand on July 2, 2021, by IFC Movies.
