ARMY OF WOLVES (2013) World Premiere
Deep behind enemy lines, a new war has begun As the story goes, the Nazis turned to occult-based experiments during the waning years of WWII in an effort to thwart the Allied forces through unorthodox means. The successful Lycanthropy Experiment was one such experiment, an attempt to breed an army of gun-toting werewolves, but the whole thing went horribly wrong as a group of American soldiers will soon discover.
Filmed amongst the rugged landscape of Central PA (Germania, Ansonia, and Morris to be precise) back in 2005 by the Polonias alongside frequent collaborator Jon McBride (WOODCHIPPER MASSACRE), additional footage has since been shot and the film has been re-edited into its current and final incarnation. Filled with regional actors, strange visual effects, and inventive camera work (wolf-cam!), Army of Wolves is a real treat for low-budget horror fans and the cinematic adventurous.
Wellsboro, PA-born twin brother filmmakers Mark and John Polonia are known for their no-budget approach towards genre filmmaking. Their first commercial release came in the form of 1986’s SPLATTER FARM (they were 18-years-old at the time) and they have since established themselves as the leaders of homegrown horror with cult favorites including THE HOUSE THAT SCREAMED, SPLATTER BEACH, and the FEEDERS films. John passed away in 2008 at the age of 39, but Mark continues to carry the family’s filmmaking torch.
Guest speaker Brian Langan will introduce the screening.
