… the post title says it all, really. Love Bite, directed by Andy De Emmony and produced/distributed by WestEnd Films, is currently in post production and slated for release later this year. Following is an official synopsis, some sales artwork via Dread Central and a teaser trailer via Bloody Disgusting (I apologize in advance if it makes you sit through a godawful The Devil Inside commercial).
High school is over and summer has begun in the dead-end seaside town of Rainmouth. While Jamie’s friends seem to be happy working in the local pie factory by day and looking for a shag by night, Jamie is bored out of his mind, running his pot-head mother’s B&B. He’s desperate to get out of there. But when he meets beautiful, smart and sexy American traveler Juliana at a party, he’s smitten – the world is not so small after all.
But soon after Juliana’s arrival, strange things start happening. One of the local teens goes missing at a party. Then, another. Jamie is warned by an enigmatic stranger that a werewolf is in town – and preying solely on virgin flesh! The only way to be safe seems to be to pop your cherry. (But that can’t be true… can it?)
As the locals are picked off one by one, the boys fear that a werewolf is indeed after them. And for all their talk, it turns out none of them have ever had sex before…
Pretty soon, everyone is dying to get laid…
Not Golden Globe material, granted, but having seen the trailer, I find it hard to dislike a film that seems to know exactly what it’s trying to accomplish and that obviously doesn’t take itself too seriously. I love Jamie’s douchey friends, the off-season holiday town vibe and the big girl in the brown fur coat. If she or Jamie’s mom turn out to be the werewolf I will be so pleased.
