It sure sounds like the new horror comedy, Werewolves Within is going to be a lot of fun. Usually, with video game adaptations, it’s hit-or-miss…this looks like a hit!
Werewolves Within is a whodunit werewolf tale set in a small village about a group of locals getting terrorised by a mysterious creature. Trapped in by a snowstorm with no way out, they must figure out who is beast among them. Based on the hugely popular video game.
Werewolves Within featured in a new werewolf movie list that was published this year (check it out HERE). We have been really looking forward to it. It’s great hearing the positive reviews coming in.

SYNOPSIS: After a proposed pipeline creates divisions within the small town of Beaverfield, and a snowstorm traps its residents together inside the local inn, newly arrived forest ranger FINN (Sam Richardson) and postal worker CECILY (Milana Vayntrub) must try to keep the peace and uncover the truth behind a mysterious creature that has begun terrorizing the community.
DIRECTED BY JOSH RUBEN (SCARE ME) SCREENPLAY BY MISHNA WOLFF
DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT: I grew up near the same small town where we shot Werewolves Within. 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 neighbours 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 a homage to my love for Hot Fuzz, the Coen Brothers, and Arachnophobia, it’s also about the monster in all of us.
STARRING Sam Richardson (VEEP), Milana Vayntrub (THIS IS US)
WITH Harvey Guillén, Cheyenne Jackson, Michaela Watkins, Michael Chernus, Catherine Curtin, George Basil, Sarah Burns, Wayne Duvall, Rebecca Henderson, and Glenn Fleshler.
