If you follow us on our various social media platforms (if you don't - you should), you've probably already seen the release of the first official teaser for Bray Road Beast. If you haven't seen it yet, stop reading right now and watch it!
"In the early 1990's a rural Wisconsin community called Elkhorn was at the center of a series of real-life werewolf sightings. As local reporter, Linda Godfrey, began her investigations into the "Beast of Bray Road", other reports from around the country, and soon, the world, began flooding in. For the subsequent three decades, the Beast of Bray Road has been the most infamous Wisconsin resident.
In their seventh film (and third feature-length documentary), Small Town Monsters takes you on an in-depth exploration of the "dogman" phenomenon. From the eerie back roads of Wisconsin, the the fields and villages of Europe, sightings of upright canids go back centuries. But is there more to these sightings than simply misidentifications of known animals or a hidden species of wolf?Prepare for the ultimate journey into the dark side of Cryptozoology, as The Bray Road Beast uncovers a secret history to the subject that touches on everything from the occult to ancient wolf-like beings with hidden knowledge. Coming October 5th."
This film is shaping up to be our darkest yet, and by no decision of our own. When Seth returned from the shoot in Wisconsin, the first thing he told me is, "This is a lot creepier than we realized." Well, that's one way to put it.
I've been watching bits and pieces of the movie come together during the editing, and I have to say, this one is unsettling. The entire atmosphere of the movie oozes a certain feeling of unease and the re-enactments and effects that have been shot thus far only add to that sinister mood.
Also revealed today is the official one sheet for the film, designed by Adrienne Breedlove (hey - that's me). The title card and font were created by Zac Palmasano, who is also the Director of Photography for the film. We were a lot of hats around here, folks.
