ZACHARY WILL'S DEBUT FEATURE PITS A DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY AGAINST THEIR LYCANTHROPIC GRANDMOTHER!
While a large portion of our time here at the News Vault is dedicated to reporting on physical media (i.e. DVD & Blu-ray releases), we do try to sprinkle in news about upcoming films as well - especially independent films that fall into genres that are part of our wheelhouse.
Speaking of which, today we'd like to shine a spotlight on a new micro-budget Horror-Comedy from a young director named Zachary Will. After two successful Kickstarter campaigns, Zachary put together a production crew, assembled a cast, and shot his first feature-length film at his family's cabin. GRANDMA WEREWOLF won "Best Picture (Under $25,000)" at the International New York Film Festival, and is scheduled for numerous theatrical screenings in late October, and early November.
Synopsis: When a dysfunctional family goes to their recently widowed grandmother’s cabin for Thanksgiving, they find out their grandma is actually a werewolf. They must work together, steal a silver sword, and learn magic to stop their werewolf grandmother from causing mayhem.
About the Director: Though this is Zachary Will’s first feature film, he has plenty of experience behind the camera, having directed over 50 short films, including an award-winning documentary. Zach received a Bachelor of Science from Full Sail University, where he wrote the first draft of GRANDMA WEREWOLF. After graduating, he moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue his film career. Prior to the project, Zach worked on TV shows for an Emmy award winning production company and on corporate projects for WebMD, Home Depot, Sears, Bloomberg, Sears, the Atlanta Braves, and more.
