The Action-Horror Flick Howls Onto DVD on July 2nd!
Here’s one film that I promoted rather heavily on my old website when it was first announced and as it has had a substantial run on Digital and VOD since appearing in May, it is time to do another post for the awesome action-horror film High Moon, which was formerly known as Howlers. The film stars Action-Flix.com favorite Chad Michael Collins (The Sniper franchise) in a spectacular tale of a resurrected gunslinger who carries his centuries old battle with a group of werewolves over into modern day. The film is ready to hit DVD next month and we have the cover art and original trailer that was released down for you below!
Written and directed by Josh Ridgway (Lionsgate’s THE SECTOR), the film stars Chad Michael Collin (Sony’s SNIPER military action franchise, sci-fi series “EXTINCT”) alongside co-stars Sean Patrick Flanery (SAW 3D, BOONDOCK SAINTS), Chelsea Edmundson (DAYLIGHT’S END, THUNDER ROAD), and Matthew Tompkins (SICARIO).
Colt (Chad Michael Collins)—a gunslinging werewolf slayer from the old west—mysteriously rises from the grave, only to find that the band of werewolves that brutally murdered his wife are still running rampant generations later. Aided by a beautiful widow (Chelsea Edmundson), a skeptical town sheriff (Matthew Thompkins) and a corrupt Mayor (Sean Patrick Flanery), Colt must face off with the bloodthirsty creatures once again to save a sleepy southern town from destruction.
Filmed in and around Dallas, Texas, HIGH MOON (formerly titled HOWLERS) is being distributed by Distribution Solutions / Alliance Entertainment andArchstone Distribution. Producers are Rishi Chitkara, Josh Ridgway, and Chad Law. Executive Producers include Larry LeMaster, Heath Calhoun, and Greg
Fussell. Lead actor Chad Michael Collins is also an Associate Producer.
HIGH MOON is BLADE-meets-WYATT EARP, combining elements of action, horror, comedy and camp in the tradition of vintage 80s John Carpenter!
I’ve had the distinct pleasure in interviewing Chad a few times now for the site and he spoke about the film the last time we chatted. Here’s what Chad had to say about the film back in October of 2017:
“I know that you know me from action films like Sniper, but honestly, the action I did for High Moon blows everything else out of the water. I’ve never done so much fight choreography, and with all sorts of fun weapons too, like a crossbow, double battle axes, and more. It was a blast, truly. The film is basically WYATT EARP-meets-BLADE with an 80s John Carpenter vibe to it. It’s fun, it’s funny, it’s a little campy, and not at all self-righteous. At one point, my old west cowboy gets behind the wheel of a 70s Barracuda, and the werewolves I’m hunting saddle up on a bunch of custom choppers. It’s a super fun ride, and I had some great co-stars like my leading lady, Chelsea Edmundson, and the great Sean Patrick Flanery. All props to writer/director Josh Ridgway for dreaming this film up and letting me cross “werewolf-slaying cowboy” off my acting career bucket list!”
