We are proud to announce the online world preview of feature film Fear of the Woods, written, produced and directed by Titus Paar (The Perfect Weapon; Grandma Is a Punkrocker; Killer Dogs) and starring Vernon Wells (The Initiation; Jurassic City; Mad Max; et al), Christian Arnold (The House That Jack Built) and Ralf Beck (The Huntress: Rune of the Dead; Sinister Visions; Blood Runs Cold).
Titus Paar: “Hi, all you crazy MOVIES and MANIA visitors out there! Hope you are ready for a real throwback creature horror in the spirit of Jaws, Jurassic Park and Stranger Things. It’s been a dream of mine since I was six-years-old and saw the anime Silver Fang for the first time and from that moment been trying to bring a bear like that alive in a snow setting!
We filmed this in the North of Sweden last year and the legendary Vernon Wells joined us in the snow and did all his own stunts (the man is seventy-four!).
The plot takes place in Alaska, 1993: A snowstorm has trapped the inhabitants of a small mountain town. Now it’s up to a group of rebellious teenagers to save the townspeople who don’t believe in monsters…
Our original plan was to make this into a feature film with a worldwide release, but we only had time to make the first twenty minutes […] So, we decided to make a kick-ass short out of this and release it as the first chapter for all the fans around the world that contact me about our production. So here it is for free on YouTube, hope you enjoy it!”
“The film is meant to be an old fashioned macho man vs nature film and the dialogue reflects that. Some of it, especially in the first few minutes feels a little heavy-handed, almost to the point of parody. Apart from that though, Fear of the Woods is a fun seventeen minutes worth of furry fury.” Voices from the Balcony
