There’s definitely an entire pack of monsters creeping towards us this year, with Nosferatu coming towards the end of the year. There’s a new werewolf movie in the works from the director of Happy Death Day, and a bigfoot movie that continues a story from 1967. And there’s bound to be even more peeking through the cracks of the Sundance Film Festival.
Big Bad | Werewolf Movie
Who didn’t love Happy Death Day? And if you haven’t seen it, you really should. I watched it on a whim and lurved it! So, I’m expecting big things from Chris Landon on this one. Coupled with Todd Lieberman producing (The Duel, The Fighter) it should be epic.
The movie is based on a short story by Chandler Baker, written for an anthology called Creature Feature. Which I am loath to admit, I haven’t read -yet! But it’s been a while since we’ve had a good werewolf movie and this will, in no way, increase my fear of them.
Sundance Film Festival
The Sundance Film Festival runs from January 18th to the 28th in Park City, Utah. But you don’t have to be there to see the movies, this festival allows you to view from home. And there are still tickets available for select screenings here.
A few that have grabbed my attention include:
- Freaky Tales (Pedro Pascal)
- In A Violent Nature
- Krazy House (Nick Frost)
- Love Lies Bleeding (The poster is reminding me of True Romance)
- Sasquatch Sunset (Jesse Eisenberg)
Bigfoot | Sasquatch Sunset
Based on Patterson-Gimlin footage from 1967, and if you’ve ever wondered what it is, what does it do all day, and where is it going, this dive into the creature’s life and the nature that it lives in, along with others of its kind, could be quite an interesting movie. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Riley Keough, Christophe Zajac-Denek, and Nathan Zellner.
Werewolves, vampires, bigfoot, and who knows what other monsters may grace our screens in 2024. I’ll be watching, will you?
