Like any good horror fan, I don’t get my kicks from the meek and mild. When I see a warning before a trailer promising blood and guts, I’m more in than ever. Well, if you’re like me, buckle up buttercup, because this trailer is chock full of blood and guts.
Bonehill Road tells the story of mother and daughter Emily and Eden, who find themselves stranded in a dark wood chased by a werewolf, as one does. They finally find a home and possible escape. Once they get there, they find a psycho killer and no help at all. Not only do they need to escape the werewolf, now they have some nutjob to deal with.
“Emily and Eden Stevens escape one violent situation only to dive head first into another. Terrified and alone they are stranded in the dark woods only to be chased into a horrific scene in a house or horrors. They must work together to get out alive. But what is worse? What is on the inside or out?”
Writer director Todd Sheets has a long resume of great indie-gorefests, top among them Grindsploitation and Dreaming Purple Neon. His movies are weird, wild and full of that independent spirit. Bonehill Road looks right at home on his filmography.
The flick is shot completely on video with not a single computer generated image. If you’re looking for the low budget werewolf gore of your childhood, have we got the movie for you. It looks like the sort of movie your older brother hid in a box under his bed with the label ripped off the VHS tape.
The new trailer paints a picture of Bonehill as a throwback to the great werewolf flicks of the 80’s. Think Silver Bullet or The Howling and you’ve got the ingredients for Bonehill. Cut the budget in half, toss in gory practical effects and just a dash of Sheets’ level of nuts and I’m definitely interested.
Bonehill Road stars Scream Queen Linnea Quigley, with Gary Kent, and David E. McMahon. The film was just released by Wild Eye Releasing on DVD and will soon hit Digital platforms.
