Fango scribe William Wilson heard from rising genre director Chad Ferrin, and got some further info on DANCES WITH WEREWOLVES, the 3-D horror/Western Ferrin begins shooting in October that we previously reported on here. Read on for his comments and a synopsis.
“The vision swimming around in my head is Sam Peckinpah doing THE THING with a dash of Sergio Corbucci,” Ferrin tells Fango. “I want to tackle this old-school, with no CGI and werewolves like you’ve never seen before. It will be a bloody, violent, horrific ride through the Old West, and I will pour my soul into every frame to ensure that it stands proudly amongst my two favorite genres.”
So what’s the story all about? Here’s the summary of David Chirchirillo’s script that the director provided: “Winter, 1864. William Singer and his young brother Henry, along with four other Confederate POWs, escape from a Union prison camp just outside of Chicago. The ragged band soon find refuge aboard a moving locomotive, only to wake the next morning, the train stopped and the passengers brutally butchered by what appears to have been a wild animal. Trekking through the frozen wasteland, the rebels discover that ‘wild animal’ is no animal at all, but a pack of Native American shapeshifting werewolves with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. Relentlessly tracked by the Union Army, hunted by werewolves, trapped within the bitter cold with no food, no water and nowhere to go, they soon discover the hell they left is nothing compared to the horrors all around them.”
