You may not know the name, but you know his work. Australian filmmaker Philippe Mora is the guy behind such toilet gems as Howling II: Your Sister Is a Werewolf (1985) and Howling III: The Marsupials (1987) as well as The Beast Within (alien date rape, 1982) and Communion (alien butt probe, 1989). Returning to werewolf territory, Mora wants you to guide him back to box office glory with your overly-taxed fun coupons.
Seeking $200,000 to crowd-fund The Growling, Mora promises only this for your investment: “Werewolves in LA and New York are trained to be vegans to throw off investigators. Hybrid lycanthropes cannot control their own cursing and obscene language, particularly in Los Angeles. If someone starts speaking obscenities, stand back immediately…”
As of this writing only three people have donated for a total of $140.00. They have 18 days left to raise $1,999,860. (Update 6/25/15: Was just informed the fundraising campaign is open-ended, so get to clickin’.)
Maybe it has something to do with werewolves being cast as vegans or being foul-mouthed. (OK, that’s not quite new; check out Big Bad Wolf (2006) for some colorful four-letter werewolf speak.) Or maybe the concept lacks, I don’t know, something not what it’s being presented as. (Vegan werewolves? What do they do – attack rutabagas by the light of the silvery moon?)
