A series of grisly murders around Boston lead homicide detectives Edward Fischer and John Nadeau to uncover the killer’s hair-raising lupine identity; adapted from the novel of the same name. A werewolf story, think Seven meets Jaws.
When the badly mutilated body of a young woman is discovered in Boston’s historic North End Detectives Edward Fischer and John Nadeau are called in to investigate. With no leads and nothing to suggest otherwise the detectives suspect the grisly murder is an isolated incident. But soon, more shredded corpses are discovered and the detectives begin to investigate the connections which bond the victims together. Their investigation reveals that the dead participated in an ill fated anthropological field study ten years previous conducted in a remote village in India where children were being snatched from their beds in the middle of the night by what villagers described as a horrifying monster. During the trip, two graduate students died under mysterious circumstances and it appears to the detectives that the killer is attempting to silence the remaining witnesses. Slowly but surely Fischer and Nadeau begin to realize that the remaining survivors are not wholly truthful and no one is who they appear. Faced with a rising body count and the real prospect of a serial killer on the loose, the detectives must race against the clock to uncover the killer’s hair-raising identity before he, she or it strikes again.
The screenplay is an adaptation of my award-winning debut novel of the same name of which I hold all rights. Currently, the screenplay is under review by four entertainment companies and there is no funding nor distribution set up. However, I believe that the film can be successful and that, despite the subject matter, it can be shot on a relatively small budget as it is written in such a way to minimize the need for expensive special FX until the very end of the film a la the shark in JAWS. For information please contact me at the e-mail address below and I'd be happy to speak with you.
