The Director of HERE COMES THE DEVIL Returns With a Grizzly New Horror
I have to say, I'm not one for a whole lot of horror films with wolves (my favorite is still probably watching Jack Nicholson and James Spader face off in the the sorta-comedy, Wolf), but I am here for Adrian Garcia Bogliano, who directed the criminally underrated Here Comes the Devil two years ago. So I am really hyped to see LATE PHASES, his new film about a strange little town plagued by a series of deadly animal attacks. Plus, it stars Nick Damici (most recently seen in the not-so-great Cold in July and the awesome We Are What We Are) and Ethan Embry (who I'll always remember as Mr Papagiorgio in Vegas Vacation) -- which could provide an interesting mix of comedy and heavy suspense.
Here's a little more about the film:
Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one's golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose's abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst...
LATE PHASES opens in select theaters November 21st.
