Chicago writer/director Joe Avella has released a trailer for his upcoming web series “Wheelchair Werewolf,” an homage to B-movie horror and educational films of the early 80s. The seven-episode series begins its weekly release on October 31st (Halloween).
A genre mashup between classic 80s horror and educational videos on disability etiquette, “Wheelchair Werewolf” follows a series of grisly murders plaguing a small town that share a curious set of characteristics: an attacker from relatively low to the ground (almost as if the killer were sitting down) and mysterious wheel tracks at the scene of the crime. Who could it be? Everyone in town is a suspect! Well, almost everyone.
The series is written, produced, and directed by Joe Avella (“Delivery Dudes”) and features performances by Tim De la Motte and Chris Blake as befuddled State Troopers, Jimmy Pennington as the world’s best werewolf hunter, and Brian Duff as Terry, a disabled man with a dark secret.
