The last we heard of Paul Hyett’s werewolf horror Howl, was that Downton Abbey and Plastic star Ed Speleers and Filth star Shauna Macdonald had joined the cast. The film, written by Nick Ostler and Mark Huckerby, began shooting in London in May, and now the full synopsis has been released.
Fingers crossed then that a trailer is just around the corner!
Here’s the full synopsis:
Joe, a young ticket-collector, is riding the last train out of London on a dark and stormy night along with a meager bunch of passengers. When the train brakes violently and comes to a sudden halt deep in the middle of a forest, it seems they have hit something on the line. But when the driver ventures out to investigate he never returns, leaving the passengers in a state of panic – particularly when Joe sees the driver’s mutilated body outside the carriage.
Realising there’s something dangerous lurking in the forest, Joe tells the passengers to make barricades to secure themselves in the carriage but soon the deadly creature is stalking the besieged train and smashing through their defences, picking them off one-by-one. Joe rallies his ‘pack’ of passengers to fight back. During a vicious battle they manage to kill the creature, revealing it to be a hideous mutated fusion of human and wild animal – a werewolf. However, celebrations are cut short when they hear more howls coming from the forest…
