Emily and Eden Stevens escape one violent situation only to dive head first into another.

What is on the inside or out?

Reviews [may contain spoilers]:
Bonehill Road has a delivery and viewing experience that is overall B-Movie quality. The cinematography is clear but doesn’t look like they used quality movie filming equipment. It doesn’t look like much editing of the film’ involved. The cast does not adapt to their roles well, and the performances are not intimidating.” Decay Mag

“Great acting, wonderful practical effects, and a compelling story. While I wouldn’t have minded some more monster action (there was a fair bit of time spent with the secondary story arc), this is a very small issue. The secondary arc serves to introduce new characters as well as moving forward with the development of Emily and Eden…” Extreme Horror Cinema

“Most of the acting is quite powerful. Other than the occasional over-emoting, such as Epps sporadic high-pitched maniacal laugh, the cast – including Epps – is pretty solid. As the two leads, Plumberg and especially DeGeer hold their own as strong women who are put in extraordinary circumstances.” The Feedback Society

“Most independent werewolf films have to hide their monster. Hell most mainstream flicks do the same but Todd Sheets made sure you got the money shot and more with this scene. Todd absolutely delivered on giving horror fans an entertaining treat of a werewolf film.” Gross Movie Reviews

Bonehill Road is the best werewolf movie of 2017 and a testament to what can be accomplished on an independent budget. A stone-cold classic brought to life in the modern age of cinema. It’s a bloody, scary, hairy story that’ll have you howling with delight.” Horror Society

Bonehill Road is a resounding success that should please most fans of horror and the werewolf subgenre. It’s a fierce and fast paced tale that features great practical effects, heaps of gore, and superb performances from DeGeer and Rojas-Plumberg. Plus, there’s werewolves, lots of werewolves.” The Movie Sleuth

“Gore fans will still not be disappointed, as Sheets manages to bring some rather nasty gore effects to the forefront and the make-up on those lycanthropes is just spectacular, especially for this type of production. Bonehill Road is an indie horror project the horror world needs to see, as it speaks volumes to fans such as myself.” Pop Horror

“It’s well put together, nicely paced and it features strong performances and excellent effects work. Fans of old school werewolf stories and practical effects work should be suitably impressed with what is legitimately the best indie horror film I’ve seen all year.” Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!

“Brutal, unflinching, entertaining, frightening and metal-as-f*ck, Bonehill Road is destined to become, much like it’s creator, a legend in indie cinema. The bar has been raised.” The Tavern of Terror

The Howling style werewolves are impressive practical creatures no CGI is used at all. The transformation scenes are also extensive and painful looking. There’s no scrimping on the effects or cutting away here. And of course, being a Todd Sheets, film there’s plenty of gore on display as well.” Voices from the Balcony

On the project’s Indiegogo page, Todd Sheets enthused:
“This is my dream project! My favourite movie monsters have always been werewolves!!! And I have been so disappointed that there seem to be no true, old-school, American-made werewolf movies coming out these days that capture the spirit of movies like The Howling, An American Werewolf in London or Dog Soldiers. I want to make fans of those movies proud!!! My goal is to make a classic monster movie for our time!!!”
