The blind hero of “Late Phases” has a reason to hate werewolves

If you’re in Austin for SXSW this weekend, save some energy for a late-night screening of Late Phases, a new werewolf film from Adrian Garcia Bogliano. The Wrap has a great interview with the star Nick Damici, who’s only 54 but jumped at the chance to play “a 70-year-old blind man who has to battle werewolves after they kill his seeing eye-dog during his first day at a haunted retirement community.” Holy crap, that’s the most hardcore thing I’ve heard all week. Normally I root for the werewolves, but killing a blind man’s dog? Not cool.

The film is screening at 11:45PM on Sunday, March 9th at the Alamo Ritz.
