This world needs more werewolf comedies. And thanks to Spanish film maker Juan Martinez Moreno – we’re about to get one. Game of Werewolves (also known as Lobos de Arga) is the story of a writer who, upon return to his home village, realizes the town has changed. Into werewolves. Check out some of the shots of the beasts, the trailer, and official synopsis below – and head over to Game of Werewolves website for more behind the scenes footage and shots.
1910, Arga, a remote village in North-western Spain. A terrible curse falls on the evil Marchioness of Mariño and her son, transforming him into a werewolf.
One hundred years later, Tomás Mariño, a failed loser writer and the only male descendent of the Mariño family, returns to Arga to be awarded the Freedom of the Village. But things aren’t quite as they seem. The real reason behind the invitation is no other than to make him the protagonist of an obscure ceremony that must be carried out exactly one hundred years after the curse first came into effect. The sacrifice will put an end to the reign of the werewolf that has been terrorizing the villagers ever since.
However, Mariño, with the help of an old friend from the village, Calisto, will manage to escape. As the ceremony hasn’t been performed on the exact date, a second curse, much worse and dangerous than the first, will fall on the village… All the villagers will transform into raging hungry werewolves!
From then on, our guys together with Mario, Tomas’ cheeky editor, and Rosa, Tomas’ grandmother, will be forced to spend the longest and most terrifying night of their lives trying to escape. But the clumsy amount of schemes they will come across with to get rid of the beasts that Arga is now hosting guarantees that nobody will lose their sense of humour.
I’m actually super excited about this one. Let’s hope this beast gets distribution!
Although admittedly – the werewolves kind of remind me of Harry from Harry and the Hendersons…
