John Landis Returns to Werewolves with Bad Vibes


You may (or may not) recall way back in 2011 we wrote a post about the upcoming hippie-inspired werewolf flick called Bad Vibes. Well, a little over two years later and? It still hasn’t been made.

Recently, some really promising news came out about it and – thanks to – we finally have an update on the film. Not only is John Landis still acting as executive producer but Elijah Wood has jumped on board as a producer as well. And even better news? There’s officially a poster. Let’s hope this means more forward movement is actually happening and we don’t have to wait another two years for the next update.

Plot: BAD VIBES is a hippie werewolf movie that literalizes the death of the ’60s. Set in the Bay Area during late 1969, it’s about a psychedelic rock band called Sunrise Majesty who sequester themselves away on their communal ranch while they work on their new album. Unfortunately, their lead singer Max has contracted a mysterious venereal disease that transforms him into a werewolf—but not the kind that’s affected by full moons. Max transforms every time he’s around a square, making him more like a ‘squarewolf.’ When in the company of other hippies, he finds himself compelled to have sex with them to spread the ‘disease.’ After transforming the rest of the band, Sunrise Majesty holds a love-in on their ranch to which only their most die-hard fans are invited. The plan? To have sex with them all, transform them into ‘squarewolves’ and send them out into the world to eliminate the terminally unhip. This will be the next step in the evolution of the werewolf film.”

About Meg

Blond, bold and brainy. Already scared aren’tcha? When Meg’s not book learnin’ or arguing the anatomy of zombies – shes probably in the ocean, watching star trek, or forcing everyone around her to endure horror moviethons. Bruce Campbell? Her personal demi-God. Costuming, comics, charity work, college and a kidlet take up most of her time. But seriously, who needs sleep when you’re training the future generation of nerd? With great power comes great responsibility…..or something.
