Wood, Landis and Gebroe team on psychedelic Werewolf film, “BAD VIBES”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
SpectreVision, the new moniker of Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood’s production company has announced John Landis will executive produce the long awaited new film from ZOMBIE HONEYMOON director Dave Gebroe. Titled BAD VIBES, the film is billed as a 60s-set werewolf tale.
Landis, who was once set to team with Gebroe on a sequel to ZOMBIE HONEYMOON says, “Based on the impressive slate of genre films that Elijah Wood and SpectreVision are producing, I am very excited that Dave Gebroe’s clever and scary Bad Vibes has found the perfect home.” That slate includes the recently wrapped COOTIES (staring Wood, Leigh Whannell and more) and has a mission statement of producing boundary-pushing, provocative genre.
BAD VIBES is set in the psychedelic rock scene of the late ‘60’s, where Sunrise Majesty is at the top of the charts with their message of ‘free love’ for all. But after an encounter with a strange groupie, bandleader and mastermind Max Cassidy is left with a gift that can’t be cured with a shot of penicillin. Max has been touched with the curse of the werewolf, transforming him into a dark and brooding nihilist whose new sound is almost as disturbing as his new plan: to hold a huge love-in at the band’s ranch where he and the group will infect all their fans, unless Cynthia, Max’s girlfriend and the last untouched member of the band, can stop them.
The soundtrack will come courtesy of Ariel Pink, who calls the script a “horrifying revisionist take on the Sixties. It’s like a bizarro-world chronology of free love, dark psychedelic music and permissiveness gone hog-wild. My fans will get to hear a side of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti that no one’s ever heard before, and that couldn’t be more inspiring to me creatively.”
