While Katie Cassidy has made her homestead playing Black Siren on the CW's Arrow, she has also become somewhat of a scream queen, starring in Black Christmas, When A Stranger Calls, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Her newest thriller, #WolvesattheDoor, has been sitting on a shelf over at Warner Bros. for a few years now, but it is finally going to see the light of day! The film already received a small and quiet theatrical release in Europe (which is never usually a good sign), but Cassidy fans in the U.S. have been patiently awaiting for the film to finally drop.
I am pleased to announce that the home invasion shocker will hit digital HD April 18th.
The synopsis for Wolves at the Door goes as follows:
Four friends gather at an elegant home during the Summer of Love, 1969. Unbeknownst to them, deadly visitors are waiting outside. What begins as a simple farewell party turns to a night of primal terror as the intruders stalk and torment the four, who struggle for their lives against what appears to be a senseless attack.

I'm a sucker for any home invasion thriller, my personal favorite being The Strangers. I find them to be so terrifying because of how real the situation is. I mean, could you imagine suddenly getting stalked and slashed in the comfort and privacy of your home? The thought of it is just terrifying.
Directed by John R. Leonetti, the man who helmed #Annabelle and the forthcoming Wish Upon, Wolves at the Door puts a fictionalized spin on the real-life murder of actress, Sharon Tate. Carried out by the Manson clan, Tate, who was eight and a half months pregnant at the time of her death, was brutally stabbed to death in her Hollywood Hills home while her husband, Roman Polanski (Rosemary's Baby), was in Europe for work.
Leonetti briefly touched upon the idea of Manson-like murders in Annabelle, and I think he handled the period piece quite well. It will be interesting to see how he presents this flick.
