"Desperate for a break from big city life, Emma heads to her family’s cabin deep in the Arkansas hills. As she settles in for some much needed R&R, she learns that something unspeakable lurks in the surrounding darkness. As the full moon rises, a bloodthirsty werewolf emerges from the shadows, slaughtering everyone in its path and revealing a sinister underworld Emma never knew existed. Thrown into a fight for her life and her very soul, Emma will need to escape these big bad woods before it’s too late."

It's been a long time since we've had a worthy werewolf flick hit theaters or our television screens. And, after viewing the trailer, Werewolf Rising doesn't look to be our saving grace. I appreciate that (from what I could see) the wolf effects are practical, but the overall quality of the trailer didn't leave me with a lot of hope. Maybe we'll all be pleasantly surprised. Who knows?

Written and directed by BC Furtney (Do Not Disturb), Werewolf Rising stars Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies), Melissa Carnell (Boggy Creek), Danielle Lozeau (Common Ave.), Irena Murphy (Trophy Heads), and Matt Copko (Dirty Laundry). This Lycanthropy tale hits home video this October 14th, just in time for Halloween.

What do you think of the trailer? Will you be watching this come Halloween?
