Set in the fictional village of Mourne a group of American paranormal investigators arrive to look into the claims of a panicked farmer that a werewolf has attacked his sheep.
They soon discover that a dark legend lives and split into groups to track the fearsome beastie.
What's odd about the BBC article is that they seem to believe that a horror film made here is a first. Haven't they heard of Zombie Genocide or the more recent Wilderness? The former is a real low budget affair but I like it- made in the days before digital cameras and desktop editing, it was filmed in sequence on tape. The latter is a bigger budget survival-horror film about a group of young offenders on a remote island being stalked by a killer complete with some grisly death scenes. Sean Pertwee makes an appearance and although it falters a little towards the end I found it a very enjoyable watch.
I'm hopeful that Mourne does get made- and not only because there's a dearth of werewolf movies; it would be pretty cool to have a movie-making industry here.Mourne's homepage is here.
