This trailer for an interesting-sounding werewolf movie called “So Falls the Shadow” has been on Vimeo almost a month ago, and for the life of me I can’t figure out if this is a trailer for a completed film, or if it was assembled to show to studios and investors. Its Facebook page says the movie is “an independent feature film whose script is currently being read by several mini-majors”, so the latter seems to be the case. Based on the trailer and this outline, I’d watch the whole thing!
In the small town of Jackson City, Tennessee, things are not as they appear. The buried secrets of this quiet Southern town surface when dead bodies start appearing near its outskirts. The corpses are torn to pieces and nearly unrecognizable. No man could do such a thing. Death like this can only be attributed to the work of a savage beast. Desperate to understand how God could allow this, Jeremiah, the town pastor, makes a bold conclusion: The beast is not an evil, but rather an instrument of God’s judgment. And anyone who puts his or her trust in God will be saved from the werewolf’s wrath! The pastor’s “panic attacks” continue and leave him waking up in strange places with no memory of how he got there. Then, Jeremiah realizes a horrible truth: He is the instrument of God’s wrath. He is the werewolf.
