Lindsay Lohan is returning to film after an extended hiatus with the supernatural werewolf film The Shadow Within. Lohan’s last venture into horror was the critically panned (but Nightmare on Film Street midnight favorite) I Know Who Killed Me.
The official synopsis reads a bit like the back of a harlequin romance novel, but we’re going to give this one the benefit of the doubt, because we’re big fans of LIZLO:
In a world where supernatural creatures roam amongst us, Kristy Wolfe, a tough private investigator, tries desperately to keep her secret hidden. She has descended from a long line of werewolves. When her uncle is brutally murdered, Wolfe must use her natural instinct and risk her secret to unravel the mystery before she becomes the next victim.
The Shadow Within was directed by Tiago Mesquita, in his feature debut. The screenplay was penned by Mark Morgan. Starring alongside Lohan are Charlotte Beckett (Penny Dreadful) and Gianni Capaldi (The Wicked Within).
The Shadow Within was filmed in Belgium in 2015, and word had been pretty quiet since then. Back in December 2016, Lohan shared the first poster on Instagram, revealing the film would be in theatres soon – but the post has since been removed. The film is currently for sale at the EFM in Berlin, so we expect to see some additional release information and hopefully a trailer later on in the year.
How hot or not are you on the scale of YES WE NEED THIS FILM? If we had emojis on the site I would have used way too many fire emojis following that last sentence.. if you’re wondering whereabouts I land.
