Hngnews.com has a new article up on Small Town Monsters' upcoming documentary The Bray Road Beast:
"Centuries of lore relating to the existence of real-life werewolves around the world will get the documentary treatment this Fall when The Bray Road Beast lands on streaming platforms and DVD courtesy of award-winning production company, Small Town Monsters. The fabled beast who lives on Bray Road near Elkhonr, Wisconsin is at the center of the new film which promises to take viewers on a wild ride down one of the scariest stretches of blacktop in middle America. Today, the film's official one-sheet has been released ahead of a Kickstarter campaign (launching January 25th) to fund the production of the film. The Bray Road Beast is a terrifying, werewolf-like creature that has stalked the midwest for the better part of a century. Rising to prominence in the 1990's thanks to a best-selling, non-fiction book by author, Linda Godfrey, the beast went on to become the focus of numerous television shows and fictional films.
"During the 90's, tales began to circulate of a hair-covered, half-man/half-dog animal that multiple people encountered while driving along rural, Bray Road just outside of Elkhorn. It was soon discovered that the creature had been seen around the area since as far back as the 1950s. Some of these sightings took on a particularly bizarre, supernatural element while others seemed to simply be of an abnormally large wolf; possibly a coyote/wolf hybrid. As the legend began to spread, so did the beasts popularity. While the sightings peaked during the 90s, weary travelers still claim to have brushes with the monster to this day.
"However, the Bray Road Beast has never been featured in a full-length documentary… until now. Along with multiple witnesses of the beast, he film will also feature author, Linda Godfrey, in addition to locals who have their own thoughts and theories on the existence of such a being. Filming begins this April around Wisconsin.
"There werewolf will be brought to life throughout the film via practical FX (with a costume designed by Collier Wilmes) and by stop-motion artists, Santino Vitale, along with the work of illustrators Matt Harris and Brandon Scalf. Author and musician, Lyle Blackburn will narrate the film which is being directed, written and produced by Seth Breedlove."
The Kickstarter campaign for The Bray Road Beast, On the Trail of Champ, and The Flatwoods Monster films starts January 25. Watch for updates on STM's Facebook page.
