Werewolf Western


Well, we've got a movie coming this summer that depicts Abraham Lincoln as a vampire killer.  Who knew he enlisted a band of werewolves to help fight the Civil War?  This one just sounds too strange to pass up.

Mankind has fought the war against ghouls of all kinds since the beginning of time. The last stronghold of evil in the known world is the American frontier, but for how long? Bounty hunter Uriah Zane and US marshal Aubrey Coffin are humanity's last hope to rid the world, once and for all, of this demon scourge...
The Hell's Angels are a gang of werewolves who have escaped from Hellsgarde Federal Penitentiary. Originally they were recruited out of eastern Europe by Abraham Lincoln to mercilessly tear the Confederates into submission at Gettysburg, thus ending the Civil War. But the Hell's Angels never returned home. They headed west-to join the legions of other ghouls...
Armed with an arsenal of weapons, the deadliest being Marshal Aubrey Coffin, notorious ghoul-hunter Uriah Zane must stop the hordes of shape- shifting creatures pushing west. Aided by a beautiful Mexican witch and necromancer, werebeasts are searching the deserts for a coveted key, a key that could give the ghouls everlasting life and final dominion over the earth-with humans as their servants.
But first they must face the wrath of Zane, a man who understands better than most the twisted soul of the wolves....

WRITING FOR THE BRAND said...

Mel, I hope you like it. When I wrote it I felt like I was channeling Ray Bradbury, Max Brand, Poe, and Roger Corman. Or maybe it was the fumes from the pot farm just up the road from me...?
