A man named Rico (Chiko Mendez) is tormented by nightmarish visions after enduring head trauma while camping in the Catskill woods in upper New York. Meanwhile, Billy (Edward Furlong), influences Rico into believing that he can become a werewolf


“With an original story and the influx of horror actors, The Forest Hills was an enjoyable watch […] The film isn’t afraid to make you use your head; think Donnie Darko meets An American Werewolf in London. While Duvall’s return to cinema was the biggest selling point for this movie, I think this forest has a lot more elements worth exploring for yourself.” Pop Horror



Film facts:
This is Shelley Duvall’s first screen role in over twenty years.
