Montreal-based director Amelia Moses establishes herself as one of Canada’s most exciting genre filmmakers with this satisfyingly chilling and grisly spin on the werewolf flick. Lauren Beatty stars as Grey, a rising singer-songwriter who comes to a remote house with her girlfriend to make a record with Vaughn (Greg Bryk), a legendary producer with an increasingly sinister approach to unlocking Grey’s potential. Working closely with the mother-and-daughter screenwriting team of Wendy Hill-Tout (also at this year’s KCFF with MARLENE, another drama co-starring Bryk) and Lowell (who provides the film with its original songs along with Kingston-area musicians Michelle Osis and Terry Benn), Moses maximizes the tension and dread in this provocative allegory about the darkness that can fuel our creative drives.
