A Dark Moon Rising Gives Way to a Wolf Moon for Lionsgate
One flick we've been talking about for a while now is Dana Mennie's werewolf driven love story Dark Moon Rising. Don't let the love story part fool ya, though; the movie features Sid Haig fighting werewolves! That premise alone is enough for me to get my ass into a seat to watch it.
Lionsgate announced today that it has acquired the movie and will be sending it home to DVD on June 22nd under the title Wolf Moon. As noted, this toothy little tale stars quite the genre pedigree with Sid Haig, Maria Conchita Alonso, Max Ryan, Chris Mulkey, Billy Drago, and more.
The story of Wolf Moon goes like this: "Real love and fate collide in a small town girl's life as Amy falls in love with a mysterious drifter who brings with him a family curse and the unimaginable horror that follows. Bender, who shares the curse with his son, brings hell to Amy's small town. As Dan and Amy's love is put to the test, Thibodeaux, an ex-cop from another city who has witnessed Bender's lust for blood firsthand; Sam, the local sheriff and an ex-homicide detective; and John, a local farmer and Amy's father, head for the ultimate showdown with Bender and the evil web of terror that he has drawn them all into."
