FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Late Phases (co-star Lance Guest & filmmakers in person!)

Co-star Lance Guest (The Last Starfighter), plus writer Eric Stolze & producer Zak Zeman in person! Is there a popular monster archetype as under-served than the werewolf? Unless you lived through 1981 for both An American Werewolf in in London and The Howling, quality lycanthrope films have been few and far between. Joining the ranks of plucky independents looking to save the subgenre like Dog Soldiers and Ginger Snaps, Late Phases marks the English-language debut of up-and-coming director Adrián García Bogliano (Penumbra, Here Comes the Devil). Actor/writer Nick Damici (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) stars as a blind Vietnam vet placed into a retirement community by his son (Ethan Embry.) When one of his neighbors is killed by a wild animal, the vet suspects something far more sinister lurking about than just his fellow retirees. The film also boasts a strong, varied cast of Tom Noonan, The Last Starfighter‘s Lance Guest, Gilligan’s Island‘s Tina Louise — and best of all, you won’t find any Twilight-style, four-legged “were”wolves here, for these critters are the full-on bipedal variety. Come get your howl on!
Dir. Adrián García Bogliano, 2014, DCP, 95 min.
