Werewolves seem poised to make a return in a big way in the coming year as Automaton Transfusion director Steven C. Miller gears up to release his film, aptly titled Werewolves, this December.

Miller took to X (formerly Twitter) to sound off on a Bloody Disgusting post about his movie, promising genre fans that this film really "swings for the fences" and goes full throttle, bringing "hard, fast, and ferocious" monster mayhem.

According to Deadline, the film employed master monster makers Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr. to create practical werewolves for the movie, so I'm inclined to believe Miller about his promise of a "true indie monster film" that skips the slow burn in favor of bonkers creature feature violence.

Set in a world where humans are born with a latent werewolf gene, millions die during a Supermoon that causes everyone to transform for a night. About one year later, another Supermoon is on the way.

Werewolves stars The Purge: Anarchy's Frank Grillo and NCIS veteran Katrina Law. Lou Diamond Phillips (Prodigal Son), James Michael Cummings (City on the Hill), and Ilfenesh Hadera (Godfather of Harlem) also star.

Produced by Briarcliff Entertainment and The Solution Entertainment Group, Werewolves is based on a script by Michael Kennedy and described as a "nail-biting big screen experience."

The Solution co-CEO Myles Nestel says the usage of practical werewolves created and built by Gillis and Woodruff Jr. helps take "the genre back to its roots in a fresh and exciting way."

It will be nice to get a new, genuinely scary werewolf movie, as it seems like, as far as horror movie monsters go, werewolves tend to show up the least. There have only been a few notable ones released in recent years, like Werewolves Within, The Cursed, and Marvel's Werewolf by Night.

Werewolves hits theaters on December 6. To stay up to date on thrillers, sci-fi, and horror, bookmark 1428 Elm and follow our Facebook page and Twitter account!
