Lindsay Lohan’s 2015 comeback attempt started with unsold werewolf film “The Shadow Within”

A. Quinton — May. 12th 2018

The Shadow Within is a supernatural thriller from director Tiago Mesquita and writer Mark Morgan, starring Charlotte Beckett and Gianni Capaldi. The synopsis:

In a world where supernatural creatures roam amongst us, Kristy Wolfe (Beckett), a tough private investigator, tries desperately to keep her secret hidden. She has descended from a long line of werewolves. When her uncle is brutally murdered, Wolfe must use her natural instinct and risk her secret to unravel the mystery before she becomes the next victim.

More family drama and secret werewolfery. We will never escape these tropes.

The Shadow Within was shot in 2015 and was noted at the time for being the start of controversially rowdy actress Lindsay Lohan’s “comeback” bid, but as of February 2018 it was still being shopped around at the European Film Market. I think Lohan’s presence might have been a bit of stunt casting meant to generate interest – note that she gets top billing on the posters despite not getting mentioned in the synopsis – but I don’t think it worked. One of the three trivia entries for the film on IMDB reads: “Will most likely be released in 2017”.
